Let's get physical — Physical season 3. The '80s-era dramedy returns to Apple TV Plus for its final workout. Rose Byrne is at the top of her game as Sheila Rubin, the housewife turned fitness guru. She's come a long way since her dull days of domesticity, but a new rival could bring down the empire she's worked hard to build.

Sheila has finally left behind her unsatisfying marriage to Danny (Rory Scovel) and battled the dark voices in her mind that shamed her for years. She's found inner confidence and strength as a teacher and entrepreneur with Body by Sheila, with the help of friend and business partner Greta (Deirdre Friel).
