This article contains predictions for the Hulu series Mike season 1, episode 3, and includes details on the release date and where to watch online.
Hulu have just released the first two instalments of the miniseries Mike back to back. The biography follows Tyson through his childhood and teenage years, with an unflinching, honest exploration of his eventful life. Here’s what happened in episode two of Mike:
- Newly paroled, Tyson goes to live with trainer and mentor Cus D’Amato. His mother is skeptical of this arrangement, but happily lets him go.
- Tyson is amazed by Cus’ family life and the trainer maps out Tyson’s future career. He wants him to win at the Olympics before turning pro and becoming world champion.
- Tyson sees Cus’ quirks, but admires the man. Their relationship grows and Tyson soars thanks to his unwavering need to impress both his mother and Cus.
- Tyson boxes in his first match at a dodgy warehouse, when he is only fourteen-years-old. He wins the match and goes on to win gold at the Junior Olympics.
- Tyson returns to his old home and instantly his old ways, smoking drugs and robbing houses. His friend is shot dead and his mother dies too.
- Cus adopts Tyson and they train for the Olympic trials. Tyson loses his first ever match, but swears to train even harder. He wins his next 27 matches in a row.
- Cus gets Tyson some managers to help promote his image, he even takes him for hypnosis sessions.
- Cus dies and Tyson is heartbroken. He misses his friend and father figure, but the managers have him get straight back in the ring.
- He wins his title fight against Berbick and becomes world champion, although Tyson wishes Cus was there to witness his victory.
Mike season 1, episode 3 release date
The next episode is scheduled to premiere on Hulu on Thursday, September 1st, 2022.
Where to watch online
Viewers worldwide can catch Mike season 1, episode 3 on Hulu on the date mentioned above.
- The narrative has started to move forward in chronological order now, so the next episode should then look at Tyson through his early twenties and into his rise to fame.
- The creators have hinted at the crazy events that are to come, including his ear biting incident, face tattoo and the purchase of a tiger, but those events are a lot further away.
- I don’t know that much about Tyson’s career, so I am equally as intrigued to find out more about his fascinating life. Hopefully the series continues to be just as well-made and emotionally engaging moving forwards.
