Sharknado 2: A Sequel With Bite

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."
