Here's everything we know so far about Pretty Smart: the trailer and plot as well as casting information.
Pretty Smart, a new Netlfix Original Comedy-Sitcom Series created by Jack Dolgen & Doug Mand. Directing duties have been split between Pamela Fryman and Jody Margolin Hahn, with production carried out by Netflix’s own production studio.

Netflix provided the synopsis of Pretty Smart.
After getting unexpectedly dumped by her boyfriend, Chelsea a high-brow, Harvard-educated intellectual and aspiring novelist is forced to move in with her bubbly, carefree, not-so-intellectual West Coast sister, Claire, and her three lovably eccentric, not-so-intellectual roommates: Grant, a distractingly handsome personal trainer, Solana, a former lawyer turned healer, and Jayden, a social media influencer. But Chelsea’s tough, sometimes judgemental exterior starts to soften as she gets to know her new friends, and they begin to form an unlikely-found family.
Many 90s children who watched Emily Osment in Spy Kids or Hannah Montana will be happy to see her cast. Osment, who started her career at Disney in the 1980s, has been a star in many roles. Osment had her own ABC Family show, Young & Hungry. It ran five seasons from 2014 to 2018. Osment is well-known to Netflix customers for her appearance on The Kominsky Method, where she played Theresa.
Greenhouse Academy fans will love to see Cinthya Carmona, actress and former lawyer-turned-healer Solana again on Netflix.

Pretty Smart follows the same trend as traditional sitcoms Netflix, which often has fewer episodes. There are only ten episodes for the initial season.
Each episode lasts 30 minutes.
Netflix has had a rocky history with sitcoms, however, there’s always a chance Pretty Smart will be a smash hit with subscribers.
Given that Pretty Smart took three months to film, it’s highly likely that more than ten episodes were produced, but we’re still waiting for Netflix to confirm if a second season is on the way.
