Sharknado 5‘ is gearing up to begin filming and we’ve just learned that both Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will both officially be returning for the next installment of this fishy franchise. That’s right ladies and gentlemen both Fin Shepard and April Wexler are back and not only that, but principal photography has kicked off today, February 2nd, in Bulgaria. Oh, and yes, the movie is going to be filmed in five countries which will also include the UK and Australia as more shark-infested storms are brewing – fin-terinationally!

Anthony C. Ferrante will once again be directing based off of a script by Scotty Mullen. On top of Ziering and Reid returning we’ll also see “the return of original cast member Cassie Scerbo as Nova, a bartender turned badass Sharknado fighter.”

While we haven’t been given an official synopsis yet, here’s how Syfy and The Asylum are describing the made for TV movie:

Now, in SHARKNADO 5, with much of North America lying in ruins, the rest of the world braces for the inevitable – a global sharknado. Fin Shepard and his family must put a stop to this disaster before Earth is completely obliterated.

That sure does sound like we’ll be continuing right off after the events in the previous ‘Sharknado’ films including how ‘Sharknado: The 4th Awakens‘ came to a close.

It continues to be amazing that not only this franchise can exist but keep giving us ridiculous sequels. Now, we’ll be seeing Sharknados happening on an ever growing global scale.
