It’s the sleeper hit of the summer, and “Sharknado” did so well on the SyFy network that they’re already knee-deep in the follow-up flick.

According to a report, SyFy held a Twitter contest to “Name Sharknado 2,” and over 5,000 fans submitted suggestions for the movie’s moniker.

The big winner ended up being “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” and Programming Vice President Thomas Vitale is pumped about the forthcoming project.

"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.' 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."
