Sharknado is coming to an end. Last panel is at Comic-Con Friday evening

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Sharknado blew onto the movie scene back in 2013, and quickly became somewhat of a cult classic. Five years later, the franchise is coming to an end, and will hold its last panel at Comic-Con Friday evening.

The latest “Sharknado” TV movies haven’t had as much bite ratings-wise as before, and now they’re ending.

According to TVLine, Syfy has decided to conclude the franchise with the sixth film. “Sharknado 6” will have a time travel theme and bring back stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Vivica A. Fox.

The original campy TV movie swam into pop culture history in 2013 — thanks to fans who couldn’t get enough of its plot about a cyclone causing flying sharks to attack Los Angeles and they live-tweeted it into infamy.

The 2014 sequel, “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” pulled in major ratings with 3.9 million viewers, but that number dropped by more than half by the time the fifth movie, “Sharknado 5: Global Swarming,” debuted in 2017.

In studio to tell us more about “The Last Sharknado” is Director Anthony C. Ferrante.
