Sharknado 6 will involve time travel

February 20th, 2018 by Dave Bowling Comments

Do you ever have one of those days where you question every last aspect of your life? This is mine.

Look, everyone likes a bit of dumb fun. Thor knows, that’s what I blame my deep and meaningful love of cartoons on. But the people at The Asylum have just taken the concept of guilty pleasure to a level that borders on criminal.

They’re working on a sixth Sharknado movie for SyFy, to be screened later this year. Let that just sink in for a minute. Six of the damn things. The same number as there are Lord of the Rings/Hobbit movies. The same number as there are good Star Trek movies. And not only are the same people responsible for virtually every shonky TV movie featuring sharks flogging this dead horse in the vain hope it’ll stand up, they are bringing in time travel.

Oh yes.

The good folks at Asylum HQ have this to say:

All is lost, or is it? Fin unlocks the time-traveling power of the SHARKNADOS in order to save the world and resurrect his family. In his quest, Fin fights Nazis, dinosaurs, knights, and even takes a ride on Noah’s Ark. This time, it’s not how to stop the sharknados, it’s when.

Oh, and here’s a poster:

I can’t help but get the feeling that someone saw Kung Fury and kinda missed the joke. Tara Reid, Ian Ziering and Cassie Scerbo will be returning from previous instalments, but do you really care about that? All anyone’s bothered about is dodgy CGI sharks dropping out of the sky and eating people.

They’re also working on one called Lava Sharks. I need a beer…

Sharknado 6 will screen on SyFy USA on 25 July 2018. Yay.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
