It’s been five years since the last Sharknado hit. Astro X has saved the world from the utter destruction of sharknadoes. By stabilizing the atmosphere, they have ended severe weather, ensuring that the debilitating events of global warming are not felt by the people of the Sharknado universe. Fin (Ian Ziering), the protagonist in charge of making questionable decisions and pulling living people out of sharks, is living pleasantly in Kansas with his young son, finally free of his dangerous past at the start of Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens. He even leaves his standoffish disposition behind for a full few minutes when he sees his son.
