‘Sharknado 3’: The best things that happened.

“Sharknado 3″ ended with a cliffhanger that left April’s (Tara Reid) life in flux, before the scene cut to black with a message splashed across the screen, “You decide if #AprilLives or #AprilDies,” with the announcement that fans can vote on her fate and learn of the outcome in “Sharknado 4.” The surprise announcement continued, “We’re not done yet.” Before the third TV movie premiered, director Anthony C. Not only was she eaten by a shark while orbiting in space, she ended up surviving and giving birth inside of the shark’s stomach, the franchise also announced that there would be a “Sharknado 4.” “This is it show me your love and support I need you!

Yes, a couple of years ago one of SyFy’s usual craptastic monster movies became a surprise hit on social media, sending Sharknado trending on Twitter and driving ratings through the roof for a schlocky camp fest starring 90s also-rans Ian Ziering and Tara Reid as a couple who has to fight off, you guessed it, a tornado full of sharks.So a sharknado hit TV for a third time Wednesday night, and somehow things got SERIOUSLY MORE INSANE than they got in the first two movies about hunting flying great whites with Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid).A reminder of the sheer elemental fearsomeness of sharks came earlier this week when surfer Mick Fanning fought off a great white during a televised competition in South Africa.“Sharknado,” the Syfy film franchise that’s seemingly taken over our televisions since it first came on the scene in 2013, returned Wednesday night with its latest installment, “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” — and it may be the best one yet. Ferrante told Variety that he is eager to create another sequel, so long the viewers keep tuning in. “This one has to be successful, but as long as Syfy wants them, we’ll keep doing them,” Ferrante said. “It’s a summer event now.

Last year Sharknado 2 had even bigger ratings, more 90s star cameos than you can shake a pair of MC Hammer pants at, and a finale where Ziering dove inside a giant shark with a chainsaw and cut his way out of the bloody mess. With a seemingly endless list of cameos — everyone from Anne Coulter to Kendra Wilkinson makes an appearance — there was no question that at least some of our favorite pop-culture icons would meet a bloody demise as shark-filled tornados swept the eastern seaboard. The fans have spoken and although it seems many want it to be the end for Reid’s character, the majority are gunning for her to continue on the series. The Brooklyn bodybuilder doesn’t take any chances guarding the vice president of the United States, portrayed by Anne Coulter (heaven forbid), and gives his life serving his country. So we’re here again, this time to live blog Sharknado 3 to give you the complete social media experience, snarking along with the intentionally awful dialogue and ridiculous plot twists, because this thing wouldn’t be any fun without it.

The native New Yorker first appeared in “Sharkado 2: The Second One” as the Mayor of Gotham, and reprises that role — albeit briefly — in the new installment. The E! correspondent looks ravishing in a ball gown during the opening scene for “Sharknado 3” — perhaps even — dare we say it? — good enough to eat.

But it’s less about the cities, and it’s more about, what are we going to do with Ian and Tara, and what genres do we want to play with?” Now the vote is in viewers’ hands, but if it were up to Ferrante, he would want Ziering and Reid to stick around for more sequels to come. “I think they’re your leads,” he said. “You wouldn’t do ‘Die Hard’ without Bruce Willis.” “Sharknado 3″ welcomed David Hasselhoff, Bo Derek, Marc Cuban, Ann Coulter, Jerry Springer, NSync’s Chris Kirkpatrick and cameos by Bill Engvall, Lorenzo Lamas, Maria Menounos and TMZ’s Harvey Levin. So who’s the celebrity dream guest star for “Sharknado 4?” Bill Murray. “We wanted Bill Murray in this one and I knew the reality of it,” said Ferrante. Handily, our hero – the ironically named Finley “Fin” Shepard (Ian Ziering, of Beverly Hills 90210 infamy) was on hand to sprint across the city and save the President’s life with a ceremonial golden chainsaw. The former child star survives having all four of his limbs being bitten off by falling sharks, and still manages to blow up an RV . . . with his chin.

This breathless bloodbath had all manner of larks with local monuments, as sharks landed on the Lincoln memorial’s lap and crashed through the Capitol dome. Escapees surfed down a shark-infested staircase on Presidential portraits and rammed a bust of Benjamin Franklin down a shark’s throat. “Nobody attacks my house,” snarled the gung-ho President (played by businessman Mark Cuban), lobbing a grenade into a great white’s gaping gob. “God bless America!” added Fin as he impaled another on a stars-and-stripes flag.

Over in Orlando, Fin’s pregnant wife (Tara Reid), daughter and mother-in-law (Bo Derek) visited the Universal Orlando Resort for no reason other than it enabled sharks to rain down on rollercoasters and devour annoying tourists. Finally, David Hassellhoff, the grand fromage of cheesy action, arrived as Fin’s astronaut father, who helped him save the world with a secret space shuttle and some male bonding.
