You may have trouble believing this, but the “Sharknado” franchise isn’t above the age-old practice of reviving a once-dead character in a sequel. Or is it? Ahead of “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens,” Syfy has revealed the results of a social-media campaign based around a simple question: “Does #AprilLive or does #AprilDie?” The character in question is played by Tara Reid, a mainstay of the series since its first installment. Watch the video below to learn her fate.
The tongue-in-cheek made-for-TV series, which first caught on before it even aired thanks to the knowing absurdity of its title, has become a mainstay of so-bad-it’s-good viewing for many. “Sharknado 2: The Second One” aired in 2014, “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” in 2015.
Carrot Top, Gilbert Gottfried, Dr. Drew, Frank Mir and two-time WWE champion Seth Rollins are among the many, many celebrities who will be making cameo appearances in the latest sequel. “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens” airs on Syfy next Sunday, July 31.
