Everybody's favorite campy classic is about to bite the big one.

Syfy confirmed on its website that the "Sharknado" franchise will come to an end with "Sharknado 6," its sixth and final installment.

Stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Cassie Scerbo and Vivica A. Fox will all reprise their roles in the final film.

According to an exclusive report by TV Line, the final film will deal with time travel.

In the fifth movie, Ziering's character, Finn was left wandering a completely desolate world, destroyed by the wrath of a sharknado. In the sixth film, the plot will follow Ziering's journey as he travels through time to stop the original fish-filled weather system.
