AppleTV+ has announced that the upcoming third season of its original dramedy series Physical will be its last. The streaming service has also set a premiere date for the final season.

The 10-episode third and final season will launch on Wednesday, August 2. New episodes will then be released weekly every Wednesday.

Annie Weisman created the series. She executive produces with Byrne, Stephanie Laing, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements and Alissa Bachner. Tomorrow Studios produces.

"We are so grateful to Apple, Tomorrow Studios, and all our creative collaborators for the chance to bring Sheila to life in all her gritty glory," said Byrne and Weisman. "With this final season, Sheila's three act saga of rebellion, recovery, and redemption comes to the satisfying conclusion that she and her fans so richly deserve. We feel so proud to share this last chapter with everyone."

"Over the course of three enthralling seasons of Physical, we have been honored to work with Annie Weisman and Tomorrow Studios to bring Sheila Rubin's journey of transformation and personal empowerment to the screen through Rose Byrne's fearless, moving, and often very funny, portrayal," added Matt Cherniss, Head of Programming, AppleTV+. "We are aware of just how much of an impact this character and story has had on audiences around the world and can't wait for them to join us on this final exhilarating ride that culminates in an immensely rewarding finale for this celebrated series."
