"Magic Mike XXL" finds the remaining Kings of Tampa ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.

As previously reported, Steven Soderbergh stepped out of the director's chair for the sequel, but will executive produce. Gregory Jacobs will direct and produce. Matthew McConaughey will not return.

"Magic Mike XXL" is due out July 1, 2015.
