PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Get ready for more flying sharks.

"Sharknado 2: The Second One" takes a bite out of New York City on July 30 in Syfy's sequel to the campy classic that aired last summer.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid return from the original film that attracted nearly 1.37 million viewers. They're joined by Vivica A. Fox and Mark McGrath, along with Kelly Osbourne, Judah Friedlander ("30 Rock"), Andy Dick, Judd Hirsch and Perez Hilton. Matt Lauer and Al Roker of "Today" and Robert Klein make cameo appearances.

This time the mayhem moves from Los Angeles to the East Coast, where a freak weather system unleashes sharks on the populace and famous sites like Citi Field, home of the New York Mets.

The original film was a trending topic on Twitter, generating nearly 5,000 tweets per minute at its peak.
