Is it Getting Hot in Here Or Was Another "Magic Mike" Movie Just Announced?

God bless Channing Tatum.

It's been too darn long since we've taken a trip down to see the men of the Kings of Tampa  — and we know you missed them too. So it's probably safe to say that there we weren't the only ones who *ahem* took notice of a post on Channing Tatum's Instagram page (@channingtatum) announcing that there will be a third Magic Mike movie.

Tatum shared a still from the movie on October 21. The photo accompanying Tatum's message is extra spicy and is a first look at what to expect this February.

"All good things begin in Miami. #MagicMikesLastDance in theaters Valentine’s Day weekend," he wrote in the caption. Is that Selma Hayek we see in the photo? Yes, yes it is. 

As the caption explained, the movie will be called Magic Mike's Last Dance and is believed to be the final movie in the franchise. According to People, shooting for the film began in November 21.  "The stripperverse will never be the same," Tatum joked at the time. "I want it to be the Super Bowl of stripping."

As a testament to Tatum's desire to go big, he explained that he wanted there to be many professional dancers on set with this film. "I want dancing like we've never been able to do in the other two movies, because we had to be honest to what the reality of that world is, which isn't great dancing," he said. 

Tatum added that he wanted there to be a strong female character in MMLD. "I want to have an equal, if not even more centralized female character for Mike to really play off of and almost to," he said. "I don't want to say, [to have her] take the baton, but really let the movie be about a female's experience and not Mike's experience, because it has been so much about Mike and the guys' experiences. These movies are very, very female-forward. At least that is our intention."

People in the comments section of Instagram were getting all hot and bothered. "Omfg I can’t wait," wrote one person. "LET'S GOOOO," another person wrote. "SHAKING," a third commenter wrote. 

We guess we know where we'll be on February 14.
