Zooey Deschanel is about to debut on Apple TV +.
As reported by Deadline, the actress has signed to star opposite Rose Byrne in the third season of the comedy/drama series. According to the report, Deschanel will play Kelly, “a network sitcom star who has decided to enter the burgeoning fitness industry.”
Deschanel doesn’t need to make a huge leap for this role. The actress is best known for a number of projects, including the hit TV comedy New Girl, which ran for seven seasons. She also starred in 500 Days of Summer, Elf, Yes Man, and my personal favourite, The Happening.
What will be the third season of Physical?
There are currently no details on when the third season will begin production or when it will premiere on Apple TV +.
Fortunately, while we wait for season three, the entirety of seasons one and two is already streaming on the service.
Set in the idyllic but fragile beach paradise of sunny ’80s San Diego, this half-hour black comedy follows Sheila Rubin, a quietly tormented, seemingly obedient housewife supporting her intelligent and controversial husband’s bid for state council membership. But behind closed doors, Sheila has her own hilarious way of life that she rarely lets the world see. She also battles a complex of personal demons related to her self-image… that is, until she finds a release through an unexpected source: the world of exercise.
Initially, after getting attached to the exercise itself, Sheila’s true path to empowerment comes when she discovers a way to combine this new passion with the burgeoning technology of videotape to start a revolutionary business. The series traces her epic journey from a stifling and neglected enabler to a powerful and confident economic force, as Sheila transforms into someone we take for granted today (but who was totally radical at the time) — the feminine lifestyle expert.
