The follow up to the buzzed-about Syfy TV movie will be titled Sharknado 2: The Second One, the network announced Thursday.

Following the huge response to the first movie, which starred Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, the network turned to Twitter to find the name of the sequel. "Since Twitter played such a huge role in the success of the original movie, we wanted to use that platform to ask our fans to name Sharknado 2," said Thomas Vitale, executive vice president of programming and original movies at Syfy. "This response is another reminder of how Sharknado has become a pop culture phenomenon. We want to thank all our viewers for their wonderful contributions to keeping up the shark-mentum."

The sequel, set in New York City, will premiere July 2014.
