Sharknado 5 is happening.

Tara Reid and Ian Ziering are back to fight shark-infested storms in the fifth installment of the ridiculously hilarious made-for-TV movies, with SyFy saying filming began in Bulgaria on Thursday.

Sharknado 5 (working title) picks up where the fourth movie left off (if you don't remember, the Eiffel Tower ripped away from Paris and crashed down on Niagara Falls). With North America pretty much destroyed, Fin (Ziering) and April (Reid) will join the rest of the world in trying to stop the global sharknado before it destroys everything.

The movie will be filmed in more than five countries, including the United Kingdom and Australia, SyFy says.

A release date hasn't been announced, but SyFy says the storm is coming this summer.
