The original Sharknado descended on Los Angeles last year, followed by Sharknado 2: The Second One's attack on New York City this summer. You guys? We have some bad news for you: Next year, Sharknado 3  is coming to Florida.

The terror starts in our nation's capital, as the airborne, sharp-toothed fish make their way down the east coast (which Syfy is calling the "Feast Coast"), with the grand finale landing right here in Orlando, Florida. "The entire Eastern seaboard will be devoured by flying sharks, " says Syfy in a statement on their website.

There has been no official announcement on casting for the sequel to the cult-favorite series, but on IMDB, they have a rumored cast of Tara Reid, Ian Ziering and Florida-boy Vanilla Ice. Syfy hasn't revealed where filiming for the made-for-television-movie will take place yet, either, but we've got our fingers crossed for an on-location-in-Orlando Sharknado and not just green screen magic.
