Apple TV+ said in a press release that Zooey Deschanel is joining the cast of the comedy-drama ‘Physical.’ Deschanel, 42, will appear in Season 3 of the series, joining returning stars Rose Byrne, Dierdre Friel, Della Saba, Lou Taylor Pucci, Paul Sparks, Ashley Liao and Geoffrey Arend.
Physical takes place in 1980s San Diego and follows Sheila Rubin (Byrne), an unhappy housewife who discovers aerobics and builds a fitness empire. Deschanel will play Kelly, a network sitcom star who decides to enter the burgeoning fitness industry.
An official description reads: “Season two found Byrne having successfully launched her first fitness video only to encounter some new and bigger obstacles on her path. She is torn between loyalty to her husband (Scovel) and the values he represents, and a dangerous attraction to someone else. And since she’s no longer the only game in town, she finds herself having to outrun some fierce new competitors on the road to building a full-fledged fitness empire.”
