As if New York City didn’t have it bad enough, what with the mangy costumed characters milking tourists for tips in Times Square, now a Sharknado is looming.

Syfy on Wednesday gave a green light to a sequel to last week’s super-buzzy, well-rated shlockfest, which starred Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills, 90210) and Tara Reid (American Pie) — and this time, the fishy catastrophe will target the Big Apple.

“Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm – on television. The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel,” Syfy EVP Thomas Vitale said in forecasting the next ‘nado. “What we can guarantee is that Sharknado 2 will be lots of fun. We’ll be announcing more details very soon. But we didn’t want our fans to worry they wouldn’t get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year.”

As for the official title to the inevitable follow-up, Syfy is apparently turning a blind eye to my Sharknado vs. Piranhacane idea and instead opening it up to fans. So go ahead, tweet your suggested subtitle for Sharknado 2: ______ to @SyfyMovies, using the #Sharknado hashtag, and the cabler Syfy will select the best submission in time for the sequel’s 2014 release.
