Syfy is taking a page from Discovery and has set an entire week of programming in advance of the debut of its Sharknado sequel.

Pegged to the July 30 debut of Sharknado 2: The Second One, Sharknado Week will run from July 26 to Aug. 2 and feature what the cable network says are the "greatest moments in shark film history."

Included in the weeklong broadcasts are Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark (July 26 at 9 p.m.), Sharkmania: The Top 15 Biggest Baddest Bloodiest Bites (July 27 at 9 p.m.) as well as Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda (Aug. 2 at 9 p.m.). (FINatics, rest assured: Sharknado Week will not overlap with Discovery's Shark Week, the latter of which kicks off Aug. 10.)

Sharknado 2 debuts Wednesday, July 30, at 9 p.m. A third Sharknado movie is already in the works.
