Apple TV+ renews Physical for Season 3
James R | On 21, Aug 2022
Hot on the heels of the show’s Season 2 finale, Apple TV+ has officially renewed Physical for a third season.
The half-hour comedy-drama, starring Rose Byrne and created by Annie Weisman, is set in 1980s San Diego, where Sheila Rubin (Byrne), a quietly tortured, seemingly dutiful housewife is battling personal demons relating to her self-image – that is, until she finds an unlikely release through the world of aerobics. Season 2 saw Sheila, having successfully launched her first fitness video, encounter some new and bigger obstacles on her path. She was torn between loyalty to her husband (Rory Scovel), and the values he represents, and a dangerous attraction to someone else – with Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus) joining the cast as Vincent “Vinnie” Green, a charismatic fitness instructor and pioneer of the late-night infomercial.
“I am thrilled for the opportunity to continue telling Sheila’s story in creative collaboration with Rose Byrne and the rest of our incredible cast, writers and crew. Rose’s breathtaking, hilarious and brave performance is the North Star on our show’s journey of personal empowerment and transformation in ’80s Southern California in all its synth-pop, sun-baked, spandex-clad glory,” said Weisman. “The feedback we’ve received from audiences who continue to discover and feel seen by Physical is the most deeply gratifying experience of my career and I’m so grateful to our team at Apple and Tomorrow Studios for making this dream a reality.”
