Finding Magic Mike is an American reality dance competition series that is heavily inspired by the film “Magic Mike” launched back in 2012. Following the film’s immense success and its sequel titled Magic Mike XXL, Channing Tatum created and conducted a show Magic Mike Live in Las Vegas, which is continuing.
The HBO Max dance reality competition show follows ten contestants from across the nation ready to battle against each other for the title. The show intends to seek an individual who will be able to perform out of his comfort zone and put on a mind-blowing dance performance while trying to build up his self-confidence, stamina, and putting faith in oneself. Hailed for its impressive dance skills and execution, “Finding Magic Mike” is the newly launched popular show to captivate fans from around the world.
Finding Magic Mike is co-conceived by Steven Soderberg along with the muscular and dance machine actor Channing Tatum and has earned quite positive reviews from the audience and critics alike. The winner of the show gets a cash amount of $100,000
With the first season dropped in December 2021, fans are now earnestly awaiting the second season and here’s everything we know about it.
Finding Magic Mike Season 2 Release Date: When is it?
The first season was launched on December 16, 2021, with seven episodes all at one go on HBO Max. It had a runtime of 40-45 minutes.
Coming back to the release date of the much anticipated second season, so far there is no official news from HBO Max about the second instalment of the show as of now. Nevertheless, fans are hopeful that a new season will happen given the show’s popularity, viewership, ratings, and the amount of cash raked in for the network are all taken into consideration before giving the green signal for a second season run.
With all the positive reviews received, Find Magic Mike will most probably be renewed. Furthermore, the Magic Mike franchise is now expanding with Television and live shows, HBO Max might be propelled for another season, fans can expect to see the new season sometime in 2022 or in early 2023 at the earliest.
The cast of Finding Magic Mike Season 2
Since the mentors are all attached to the Magic Mike franchise for quite a while, they are likely to return to the show for the second season as well.
The mentors include a list of well-known stars— Nicole Scherzinger, Whitney Cummings, Amanda Seales, Nikki Glaser, and Robin Thede were among the season’s stellar guest judges.
Henceforth, viewers can expect to see these people return on the panel and maybe a few of the celebrity guests judge as well in the second season.
If a new season is renewed, fifty contestants will partake in the show and fight for the title of Magic Mike.
Are the Magic Mike alums involved in Finding Magic Mike?
Actor Adam Rodriguez (who played Tito from the magic Mike movies) served as a mentor on the show and revealed that he happily accepted to be a part of the show because of the great experience he had working with the other cast members, whom he now shares a good connection with.
“The opportunity to take the experience I had and help guide these guys who were courageous enough to show up excited me,” he explains. “You say, Magic Mike, you have people at ‘Hello’ because they correctly assume they’re going to get eye candy and sex appeal. Which, you do, but I just don’t think people see the heart that’s coming with it, and that’s the beauty of it. That’s the surprise that I can’t wait for people to see.”
It’s a bit disappointing that Channing Tatum does not make an appearance in the show but is only seen in some clips back from the films alongside his other cast members. Tatum assists as an executive producer on the show along with Steven Soderberg who is also the director of Magic Mike, Gergory Jacobs who directed Magic Mike XXL, and Reid Coling who penned the initial two movies.
Keep your eyes peeled for more details about the second season of Magic Mike.
