| Updated:

Bust out your lycra and neon headbands – Apple TV+ is sending us back to the 80s for new series, Physical.

The eight-part comedy-drama is all about female empowerment in a time when women were more often seen than heard.

And if they were anything like this leading lady, they had a lot of thoughts.

So who’s in the show? What exactly does it cover and when is it out?

Here’s everything you need to know…

What is Physical about?

Physical follows Sheila Rubin, a dutiful housewife living in the middle of 1980s San Diego, California. 

Spending most of the day tending to her daughter, she is miserable – resorting to ballet classes or binge-eating in a bid for release.

But one day, she starts to find a new lease of life when she takes up aerobics.

While all this is happening, viewers get to hear Sheila’s real feelings as the thoughts in her head provide commentary.
