Magic Mike 3 is officially in the works and Channing Tatum will be returning to his role!

Tatum took to Twitter to share the exciting news with his fans on Monday. To reveal the project, he shared a photo of the script with the title set as Magic Mike’s Last Dance. “Well world, looks like Mike Lane’s tapping back in. @hbomax,” Tatum tweeted.

The film will be directed by Steven Soderbergh, who directed the first 2012 film in the franchise. The film will be written by Reid Carolin and will premiere exclusively on HBO Max. Gregory Jacobs, who directed 2015’s Magic Mike XXL, will be producing alongside Carolin, Nick Wechsler and Peter Kiernan.

“There are no words for how excited I am to blow the doors off of the world of Magic Mike with Steven, Greg, Reid, and the amazing people at HBO Max,” Tatum said in a statement shared by PEOPLE. “The stripperverse will never be the same.”

The news of the third installment in the franchise comes almost eight months after HBO Max announced that they would be hosting an unscripted competition show based on the movie series called The Real Magic Mike.

The show will take 10 men who have “lost their magic” and transform them into real-life Magic Mikes. The contestants will evolve their bodies and learn routines while also growing personally to improve their confidence. One man will be crowned the “Real Magic Mike” and will receive a cash prize as well as the ability to perform on the Magic Mike Live stage in Las Vegas.
