We know the basic premise of the Magic Mike film series is based on Channing Tatum’s experience as a male stripper during the early days of his career, before his big break in Hollywood.

However, the cast member Channing Tatum had a conversation with THR in which he talked about the plans for the film. Tatum said, “The third installment will be the show, and I think it has to evolve past these guys. The first one was about Mike, the second one was about the guys.” Meanwhile, the star also continued by saying, “I think the third one is really about a man and a woman having a conversation about sex and themselves and who we all are. That’s the next step I would like to take with the story.” Tatum’s comments lead us to believe that the third movie will give the franchise a fresh start.
In a different interview, Tatum gave a few spoilers on what viewers may look forward to in the third installment of Magic Mike.
