Talk about a post-holiday pick-me-up. A new Magic Mike movie is in the works, and the announcement alone is enough to make fans blush. 

This news comes on the heels of an indulgent weekend, but now everyone's gearing up for a different type of satisfaction. According to Mike Lane himself (none other than Channing Tatum), the series is set for a third and final installment. 

If you thought movies and shows like Bridgerton dialed up the steaminess factor, allow Mike, Ken, Tito and the rest of the gang to show you how it's done. We can't make any promises, but there's a good chance a lot of shirtless shenanigans, and then some, will ensue. 

"Well world, looks like Mike Lane’s tapping back in. @hbomax," Tatum tweeted alongside a photo of the forthcoming film's script. 

Reid Carolin has written the movie and Steven Soderbergh will sit in the director's chair once more. Toby Emmerich, Chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group said in a statement (opens in new tab): “We’re thrilled to be back in business with Channing, Steven and their creative team to bring back Magic Mike’s wonderful combination of dance, drama, romance and humor.”

Buckle up, folks!

Not only can you catch up with the films on HBO Max, but the streaming platform will also debut a new show on December 16, 2021 titled Finding Magic Mike, a competition show that's "ready to bare it all."
