Who are the lucky actors joining Tara Reid and Ian Ziering in saving New York City from tornadoes filled with man-eating sharks? 

The SyFy Channel today released the official cast list for the aptly named "Sharknado 2: The Second One;" with Vivvica A. Fox as Fin’s old high school friend, Mark McGrath as Fin’s brother-in-law, Kelly Osbourne as a flight attendant, Andy Dick as a police officer, and veteran actor Judd Hirsch as a taxi driver.

"Sharknado was an extraordinary ‘perfect storm' which captured the attention of movie fans across the globe," Syfy's executive vice president Thomas Vitale said in a statement. "You couldn't go anywhere without hearing about Sharknado!  By reassembling the creative team—and dropping sharks onto New York's iconic sites—we're unleashing yet another ‘fin' wave of shark-mania."

According to Deadline, production for the low-budget sequel will start next week. The film will premiere sometime in July. To get a taste of what to expect, here's a compilation of scenes from the first film.
