Sharknado 3 may not have the same critical acclaim as its predecessors (this is a real sentence I just typed), but by gum, if they don’t know how to drive audiences into a feeding frenzy. Having already been to space, a fourth installment is officially ensured, but the return of one cast member will be up to you.
As if Sharknado or its sequel hadn’t assaulted your sanity enough, its impending trilogy may well take a golden chainsaw to it. The Sharknado officially becomes a “Sharkicane” threatening to devour the “Feast Coast” in Syfy’s extended threequel trailer, and between Frankie Muniz, storm-sensing and fighter jets, not even David Hasselhoff can rescue you from drowning in madness.
Should American Horror Story ever grow stale, Syfy has set about developing its own horror anthology cycle with some seriously creepy roots. The network has teamed with Chronicle and American Ultra writer Max Landis to scare up Channel Zero: Candle Cove, basing its inaugural season around a horror tale spun by internet haven Creepypasta.
Sharknado 3 took its particular brand of Oh Hell No! insanity to the White House by the film’s first sneak peek, but with a frenzy afoot on Capitol Hill, out come the celebrities. Frankie Muniz, Lou Ferrigno, Penn Jillette and more are just some of the famous folk having sharks rained upon them in the latest trailer for our third national Sharknado.
Because you asked for it, pleaded for it, mailed millions of pounds of chum to your local congressman for it, Sharknado is back and headed to Washington D.C. for a second sequel. The first trailer from Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! has arrived, and yes, a shark lands on the Lincoln Memorial.
Syfy may have lowered its titular quotient with the cancellation of Helix last week, but already the network seems to have picked up its newest high-profile series. After a lengthy development, The Magicians has finally been granted a series order, adapting Lev Grossman’s best-selling novels.
The threat of a worldwide supervirus would put anyone on edge, but the cast of Syfy’s Helix won’t have that problem for much longer. Just weeks after its second season finale, Syfy has confirmed that Ron Moore-produced viral thriller Helix has firmly been eradicated from the lineup.
We haven't kept up with Syfy's adaptation of Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys very much since its beginning, but the network has officially contracted a second strain. Syfy has renewed 12 Monkeys for Season 2 to air at some point in 2016, albeit with a bit of creative shuffling behind the scenes.
This Friday will see NBC airing the last of its initial 13-episode ‘Constantine’ order, certainly a worrying notion for those concerned by the network’s recent exclusion of the DC drama among multiple renewals. There may yet be hope for ‘Constantine’ however, as NBC is reportedly considering moving a second season to Syfy, and allowing a bit more creative freedom.
The Army of the ‘12 Monkeys’ will be born anew on Syfy in a matter of weeks, and whether or not you count yourself a fan of the movie-TV reboot trend, we’re hard-pressed to argue with promising early results. Check out Syfy’s new take on the Terry Gilliam-Bruce Willis classic with the first nine minutes of the new ‘12 Monkeys’ TV series!
