In 1975, Jaws made people afraid to go in the water. Then, in 2013, Sharknado came along and likely forced a small percentage of people to fear the outdoors as a whole, lest a rogue shark come by and slaughter them on their front lawn.
In the time since, four sequels have followed suit, each upping the level of absurdity and featuring a boatload of unexpected celebrity cameos, with everyone from weatherman extraordinaire Al Roker to Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor showing up in small roles. And when factoring all that in, it leaves little room to wonder why this franchise has become the crown jewel in the SyFy network’s proud line of original B-movies, the likes of which have included such gems as Sharktopus and the timeless classic Mega Croc vs. Gatoroid.
But as long as people keep tuning in, the sequels will keep on coming. Or at least, that’s what we thought when Sharknado 6 was announced not too long ago. As it turns, though, this will actually be it for the franchise. And in case you refuse to believe that, the film’s official title has been revealed today and it certainly hammers home that this is indeed the end, with Syfy choosing to call it The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time.

In addition to the title reveal, we also got a quick teaser trailer, seen above. Of course, it doesn’t show off a whole lot, but does remind us that this summer we’re going back in time “to finally put an end to the worst thing that’s ever happened.” For more on what to expect, be sure to check out the official synopsis:
All is lost, or is it? Fin unlocks the time-traveling power of the SHARKNADOS in order to save the world and resurrect his family. In his quest, Fin fights Nazis, dinosaurs, knights, and even takes a ride on Noah’s Ark. This time, it’s not how to stop the sharknados, it’s when.
Sharknado 6 – or The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time – stars series stalwarts Tara Reid, Ian Ziering and Cassie Scerbo, as was to be expected, and will be with us on August 19th.
