1980s-themed dark comedy Physical has been renewed for a second season by Apple TV.
Created by Annie Weisman (Suburgatory, Desperate Housewives), Physical stars Rose Byrne (Damages) as Sheila, a housewife in 1980s San Diego who juggles her under-appreciated oversight of husband Danny’s (Rory Scovel) bid for state assembly with her own, budding interest in the aerobics craze.
The cast also features Rory Scovel, Dierdre Friel, Della Saba, Lou Taylor Pucci, Paul Sparks and Ashley Liao.
“We couldn’t be more proud to showcase Annie Weisman’s singular take on this darkly funny, heartbreaking and bold story,” Apple TV+’s director of domestic programming, Michelle Lee, said in a statement. “And then we got to watch Rose Byrne inhabit this incredible, multi-layered character, giving us an unforgettable tour de force performance. We have been thrilled to see audiences around the world fall in love and feel seen by this show and we can’t wait for everyone to experience the next chapter in Sheila’s journey towards personal empowerment.”
