That's because Syfy's order for Sharknado 6 will be the cable channel's final one. The most recent installment, last year's Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, ended in global destruction, which now sees Fin trying to reverse through time travel in the sixth movie. The first film's objectively insane premise earned itself some early online attention, but Syfy had made films just as insane before that hadn't managed to blow up.
Sharknado made a splash upon its debut in 2013, instantly gaining a cult following, and it spawned the annual follow-ups Sharknado 2: The Second One, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, and Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.
Originally garnering 1.37 million viewers for its first installment, the Sharknado series secured its popularity with its sequel, which drew 3.87 million sets of eyeballs. Still good numbers for Syfy, but clearly a sign of a series on its way out in terms of popularity and relevance. TV Line reports that, in the final film, he must travel back in time to stop the Sharknado that started it all.
A title for the final film has not be released. For a film franchise that is centered on a tornado full of sharks, that's really saying something!
