Apple TV+ offered up a new trailer Wednesday for season two of the darkish comedy Physical, starring Rose Byrne as a pioneering entrepreneur in the 1980s fitness boom in Los Angeles.

But Byrne’s character, Sheila Rubin, faces daunting competition as her husband continues to struggle with his political career.

Apple TV+ Physical season 2 trailer: Survival of the fitness in fitness business

Apple TV+ dark comedy Physical got its first season two trailer Wednesday. Rose Byrne returns as the entrepreneurial Sheila Rubin, who is trying to build her nascent fitness empire into a brand.

Season two debuts June 3. New episodes air on Fridays.

And now back to the story. Sheila’s dreams of building a fitness empire had been overshadowed by her husband’s attempts to get elected to office. Season two picks up with Sheila’s secret business out in the open as competition ratchets up the pressure.

Some of that competition comes in the form of Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus). He joins the cast as charismatic fitness instructor and weight-loss guru Vinnie Green. He’s a pioneer of the late-night infomercial.

The series’ returning cast members include Rory Scovel, Dierdre Friel, Della Saba, Lou Taylor Pucci and Paul Sparks. The show is written by Annie Weisman, who executive produces along with Byrne and others.

Physical season two will have 10 episodes. Customers can watch all of season one now with an Apple TV+ subscription, which costs $4.99 per month (seven-day free trial) or is available with every tier of the Apple One subscription bundle.
