Syfy says flying sharks will bite again.
The network is announcing a sequel to "Sharknado," which became an instant campy classic with its recent airing. The new film premieres in 2014.
This time the mayhem moves from Los Angeles to New York City. There, as before, sharks can be expected to plunge from the sky and plow through the streets as a result of an ecological nightmare. No other details of the film were disclosed.
Syfy also announced a special Twitter contest to give the movie an appropriate subtitle. Fans can tweet their subtitles to @SyfyMovies using the hashtag #Sharknado.
Aired last week, the disaster film was a trending topic on Twitter, generating nearly 5,000 tweets per minute at its peak.
Meanwhile, nearly 1.37 million viewers tuned in.
