Fin and April saved Los Angeles in the first "Sharknado" and fought another freak weather system in New York in the sequel "Sharknado 2: The Second One". In the third one, the sharks will wreak havoc in the nation's capital, Washington, D.C., before heading down the Eastern Seaboard.
Anthony C. Ferrante will return to serve behind the lens with the script by original writer Thunder Levin. The satirical disaster TV movie is back on Syfy for more mass destruction this July.
