The movie, written by Thunder Levin and directed by Anthony C. Ferrante, takes place five years after "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!" with the official description from Syfy teasing, "Fin (Ian Ziering), his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks — and 'nados! — are being whipped up in places (and ways) least expected."

Tara Reid will also return as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign. Ryan Newman (as Claudia Shepard) will also reprise her role. New additions to the cast include Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley, Cynthia Bailey, Masiela Lusha and Cheryl Tiegs.
