“You see where this is going… right?”

So reads the teaser trailer for Sharknado 5: Global Swarming. That’s right, they’ve made 5 of these things already.

As the title suggests, the world will be experiencing a global sharknado in the fifth chapter of Syfy’s cheeky franchise. L.A. experienced shark-carrying twisters in the first film, Sharknado 2: The Second One took the action to New York, the aptly titled Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! took the meat-eating fish to the East Coast and the fourth film, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, destroyed Vegas among many, many other unlucky locations.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are back, reprising their roles as Fin Shepard and April Wexler, in a film that was shot in over 5 countries, including Australia, the UK, and Bulgaria. According to the film’s IMDB page, familiar faces making appearances include Olivia Newton-John, Dan Fogler, Tony Hawk, and Fabio.

Franchise director Anthony C. Ferrante stays on at the helm, directing this time from a screenplay by writer/casting director Scotty Mullen, whose script credits include Zoombies and The Fast and the Fierce.

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming will be hitting Syfy on August 6.
