‘Sharknado 6: It’s About Time’ will wrap-up the surprise hit ‘Sharknado’ franchise this summer on Syfy. Cassie Scerbo, who has played “Nova” for 4 out of the 6 films in the series – taking the character from bartender to weapon toting shark-slayer, will celebrate this last installment with the inclusion of her brand-new song, “Disaster,” which will be featured in the film and as part of its official soundtrack.
“Disaster” hits the perfect tone for the film with its funky, rock-driven beat. The track was written by Josh Mizzelle and produced by Loudbaby.
Recently, Cassie has been spending a lot of time recording new music to share with her fans. Working with collaborators such as; Chromosomes Music, Just Loud, and Drew Scott, she has fully immersed herself into getting back to creating music.
“To be able to dive back into my music now as I’ve grown and evolved into a woman who knows her sound and is confident in what she wants to say, has been unbelievably freeing,” says Cassie. She continues, “I’ve missed music beyond words and I feel like I can breathe again. To be able to marry both of my worlds; acting and singing, for this project felt like the perfect way to introduce my music to the world. I have to thank LoudBaby for helping to re-ignite my passion and drive musically with this song. Stay tuned for more to come!”
“Disaster” will be available through all streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes) on Sunday, August 19th.
‘Sharknado 6: It’s About Time’ premieres on Syfy on Sunday, August 19th at 8:00pm.
“It’s about time.” Time for the last “Sharknado.” No, really, that’s the name: “The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time.” The latest entry in Syfy’s campy shark franchise, which could otherwise be called “Sharknado 6,” is presumed to be the last.But don’t put away your chainsaws just yet. There’s still more blood to be shed, more movies to be referenced, more … Tara Reid. And it’s only a few days away! You see, some heroes don’t need chainsaws, because they tell you what time things are on TV.
For five years, “Sharknado” has been swimming along with Reid and Ian Ziering at the helm, defending us from various sharks flying through the air in various types of storms, from Los Angeles to New York, Florida, the globe and outer space (lightsabers were involved). Each time, the slash-happy heroes would live to see another day after they had smashed and sawed the aquatic nemesis into submission. But there’s no denying that the shark-swatting movies lost their luster a few years in, even if no one expected the enterprise to be much of a success in the first place. Still, the threat of another storm always looms, somewhere off in the horizon. And it’s already August, meaning we’re past due for a resurgence of airborne sharks. Plus, Earth was apparently demolished in the fifth “Sharknado,” but Ziering managed to stay alive. So with that, we give you — “The Last Sharknado.”
“The Last Sharknado” will air from 8 to 10 p.m. Sunday, August 19 on Syfy. But anyone who’s watched at least one “Sharknado” knows that the party really happens on Twitter. In July of 2013, the dead of summer doldrums (maybe that helped), the Syfy movie emerged as a surprise hit on social media, where it became a watershed moment in social TV. Somehow, the network that birthed movies like “Jersey Shore Shark Attack,” “Dinoshark” and “Shark Swarm,” had stumbled on a winner that was just silly enough to work. Nielsen called it the “most social TV movie of 2013.” The 2014 sequel, “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” claimed even more attention on social media, drawing 581,000 tweets as compared with the first movie’s 318,232 tweets. On Sunday, look out for the Syfy hashtag #Sharknado6 along with any others that may well pop up during the broadcast alongside celebrity names that may emerge in connection with cameos — a time-honored element of the “Sharknado” movies.
“Sharknado” has always been something of a New Jersey affair, even if only one of the movies really had scenes in the state (remember when the Statue of Liberty was decapitated in the second one, when Judd Hirsch, playing a taxi driver (geddit?), lamented that chainsaws were only available in New Jersey and on Long Island?). This is because star Ian Ziering (“90210”), who saw his career undergo an unlikely reinvigoration by way of the campy summer romp, originally hails from West Orange. And Tara Reid, best known for the “American Pie” movies and “The Big Lebowski,” grew up in Wyckoff. Onetime Paramus resident and former congressional candidate Stacey Dash even played the president in one of the sequels. Reid, who plays April Shepard, and Ziering, who plays Fin Shepard, will be back for “The Last Sharknado.” So will Cassie Scerbo, who played Nova starting in the first “Sharknado.” And Vivica A. Fox, who played Skye in the second “Sharknado.” Another returning actor from the second movie: Judah Friedlander, who plays Bryan. But don’t forget those cameos. Tori Spelling, Ziering’s former “90210” co-star, is slated to make an appearance, as is her husband, Dean McDermott, as well as La Toya Jackson, Dee Snider, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Darrell Hammond. And if IMDB had more, we’d certainly share. Looks like you’ll have to check Twitter, or actually watch the movie.
Have you seen “Avengers: Infinity War”? Then you may have some thoughts about the potential of time travel to solve major problems! So does “The Last Sharknado.” Since Fin (Ziering) found himself the last man standing after the shark-tastrophe of the last film (“Sharknado 5: Global Swarming”), he has to go back in time to save the world in this movie. But the movie also travels to the future, Doc Brown style. Expect some scenes with dinosaurs. The film will also visit medieval times (the actual time period, not the place in Lyndhurst), the Wild West and the American Revolution.
Sure, Syfy calls this “the sixth and final installment of the series.” But don’t relegate Ian Ziering and his chainsaw to TV history. Announcements that something has or will end hasn’t stopped other franchises and TV shows from being rebooted, revived and reconstituted. Maybe “Sharknado” will be back after about five years, like “Jersey Shore.”
