The dark comedy Physical has officially been announced for a third season on Apple TV +, and viewers are thrilled to see what the upcoming season is going to bring this time around. The dramedy's season 2 finale left audiences with a bit of a cliffhanger (to say the least), so luckily, we'll be able to see how the storyline unfolds!

Starring Rose Byrne, the show follows the actress in the early 1980s as a housewife in San Diego who is secretly battling an eating disorder amongst other personal struggles when she discovers aerobics and things start to change for her dramatically. The once-housewife takes her passion for the sport and becomes a video star and powerful businesswoman in the midst of her husband's political campaign. Bryne transforms into a total self-starter businesswoman after launching her platform, and well, a lot of controversies follow. Spoiler alert for those who have not yet caught the dramedy, but season two ended in the couple going their separate ways and her soon-to-be ex-husband asking her for 50 percent of her business, to which she responded, "over my dead body." Ouch.

Annie Weisman, the show's creator, writer, and executive producer, shared her excitement for the show's renewal (like the rest of us)! "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 80's Southern California in all its synth-pop, sun-baked, spandex-clad glory," she shared. "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."

So now that we know Physical is due for a third season, we can't wait to see what is going to happen to Sheila's empire, but there is currently no date on when the season will be released. However, expect the dramedy to appear on your screens sometime next year!
