“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?”

“I’m so excited to have been a part of this magnificent piece of high art,” Alaska told Hornet.com. “The social and cultural impact of this film will surely be felt for generations.”

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