The polar vortex wasn't the only freakish weather system to invade New York City this winter. The sequel to Syfy's Sharknado, last summer's over-the-top, Twitter-busting pop-culture phenomenon, was filmed amid frigid conditions throughout the Big Apple. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid reprise their roles as recently reconciled couple Fin and April, who barely survived last year's series of shark-infested waterspouts that tore through Los Angeles.
On the set of Sharknado 2: The Second One in February, Ziering wasn't feeling the pressure of expectations to top the original, which spurred more than 300,000 tweets during its original broadcast. "Either you like it or you don't like it," the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum says. "I didn't have high hopes for the first movie, and look what happened."
Sharknado 2: The Second One
"You just jumped the shark," Mark McGrath says in the latest trailer for Sharknado 2: The Next One, probably one Sharknado movie too late. Syfy rolled out a new extended trailer for the next chapter of its social-media phenomenon, and it's heavy on Big Apple pride, airborne toothy fish, and surprise celebrity cameos.
Syfy is gonna need a bigger boat.
The network has ordered Sharknado 3, before the second installment in the franchise even airs. The threequel will air in summer 2015, though Syfy has not specified in which city it will take place.

Our top moments of the week:
13. Slowest Learning Curve: Before hearing the results of the Australia Gold sunscreen challenge, Celebrity Apprentice's Team Backbone project manager Mark McGrath says he will take all responsibility if his team loses. It did and he does — until he decides to backpedal and switch the focus to Gary Busey and his crazy antics. But it's too little too late. Silly Mark, don't you know...
The Celebrity Apprentice
Country star John Rich, rapper Lil Jon and actor Gary Busey gather outside a Manhattan pizza joint with a giant inflatable guitar and a handful of fliers. Dressed as a cross between a deranged carnival worker and late-night televangelist, Busey — the natural barker of the bunch — assumes the identity of the "Pepperoni Profit" [sic], screaming at unsuspecting tourists to "stop the bus, turn off the key and get your butts in here!" The ones who oblige him score a slice — and a front-row seat to the spectacle of this season's first Celebrity Apprentice challenge, debuting tonight with a two-hour premiere.
