Syfy knows a good thing when it has one,. So it’s sticking with the formula that made “Sharknado” a cheesy monster hit and bringing back its stars, Tara Reid and Ian Ziering for the third installment.

Anthony C. Ferrante is back as director, too, as the shark-raining tornado slams into Washington, D.C., then rumbles along the “Feast Coast” toward Florida.

Last July, “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” was Syfy’s most-watched movie, scooping up 3.9 million viewers.

“Sharknado 3” will air in July.
