Look out Manhattan ... THE FLYING SHARKS ARE COMING TO THE EAST COAST!!!!!

Syfy has officially greenlit a sequel to "Sharknado" -- the Ian Ziering/Tara Reid flick about sharks invading Los Angeles -- only this time, the great whites will touch down in New York City.

One of the honchos at Syfy released a deliciously cheesy statement saying, "Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm – on television. The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel."

"What we can guarantee is that Sharknado 2 will be lots of fun. We’ll be announcing more details very soon. But we didn’t want our fans to worry they wouldn’t get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year."

No word if Tara or Ian will be back for the sequel -- but both actors told TMZ they're 100% down to appear ... if they're asked.
