Syfy announces Sharknado Week 2015 schedule

Jeff Pfeiffer

We just finished up Shark Week, and now it’s time to look forward to Sharknado Week 2015! Apparently, one night cannot contain Syfy’s Sharknado franchise, as this is the second year that Syfy will devote a week to creature features leading up to the big event.

This year, starting July 18 and centered around the premiere of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! on July 22, Syfy will air several original movies primarily featuring sharks, but also some spiders, for good measure.
