Drag Race: All Stars winner Alaska Thunderfvck will feature in the sixth and final installment of SyFy’s Sharknado franchise.

Thunderfvck, who was a runner-up on Season 5  of Drag Race and returned to win All Stars 2, was announced as a part of the cast of the final film in the disaster spoof series, The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time.

Syfy released the trailer and cast list this weekend, which includes Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott, La Toya Jackson, Dee Snider, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Darrell Hammond.

The original film debuted in 2013 as a made-for-tv cheesy disaster film about a waterspout that sucks sharks out of the ocean and throws them around Los Angeles.

It was soon followed by four sequels, titled Sharknado 2: The Second One, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, and Sharknado 5: Global Swarming.

The synopsis for the sixth and final film reads:

“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. 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?”
