Sharknado: The 4th Awakens picks up five years after the East Coast was ravaged in last summer’s Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! Fin (Ian Ziering) and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharknados have returned. David Hasselhoff and Ryan Newman are reprising their Sharnado 3 roles. New to the cast are Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha and Cheryl Tiegs. Sharknado 4 produced by the Asylum. Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct an original screenplay by Thunder Levin.
