“RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum Alaska has been cast in the final installment of the “Sharknado” TV movie series.
The “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” season two winner will join Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott and La Toya Jackson in “The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time.”
The “Sharknado” series, which debuted in 2013, developed a cult following for its campy premise of severe tornados pulling sharks out of the ocean onto the mainland.
“Our hero Fin (Ian Ziering) has battled sharks all over the globe, but in this last installment he will tackle the final shark-tier — time travel,” reads the final film’s synopsis. “In the ending moments of Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, Fin was seen wandering alone on Earth after it was destroyed. Now he must travel back in time to stop the Sharknado that started it all. Will Fin and the gang be able to set everything right and save the world once and for all?”

“The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time” premieres on August 19 on SyFy.
