In preparation for the premiere of Syfy’s “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” the network is also having its first ever “Sharknado” Week.

“Sharknado” Week begins July 26 and goes through Aug. 2, with “Sharknado 2” airing on Wednesday, July 30.

Special shark programming during the week will include “Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark,” “Sharkmania: The Top 15 Biggest Baddest Bloodiest Bites” and “Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda.”

Last summer, “Sharknado” became a star on Twitter. The movie drove 5,000 tweets per minute at times.

The sequel will unleash a Sharknado on New York City and its most cherished iconic sites. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will return to star.

The film, directed by Anthony C. Ferrante from a screenplay by Thunder Levin, also stars Mark McGrath, Kari Wuhrer, Vivica A. Fox and Judah Friedlander, with cameo appearances by Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Perez Hilton, Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Andy Dick.
