“Pretty Smart” is the next Netflix sitcom in the vein of those found on traditional broadcast networks, and it debuted at the beginning of October 2021.
It’s set in a standard television living room, and the laugh track adds a touch of levity to the show’s otherwise simplistic humour.
The show follows Chelsea (Emily Osment), a privileged aspiring novelist who relocates to Los Angeles to live with her sister Claire (Olivia Macklin) after her lover rejects her.
Claire and Chelsea couldn’t be more different from one another. Claire, the waitress, is as beautiful as she is easygoing and unthinking.
Since Chelsea has a sneaking suspicion that Claire isn’t as bright as she is, this has put a strain on their relationship. Their proximity to one another is restored as a natural consequence of their shared living arrangements.
Chelsea also develops relationships with Claire’s roommates: the social media influencer Jayden (Michael Hsu Rosen), the former lawyer turned New Age healer Solana (Cinthya Carmona), and most significantly, Grant (Gregg Sulkin), Claire’s hunky ex-boyfriend and Chelsea’s co-worker at a gym called Build.
Light and humorous, the first season of “Pretty Smart” featured a couple of alums from the Disney Channel in a comedic vehicle (Osment and Sulkin). What we know (or are willing to guess) about a possible Season 2 is below.
When will Season 2 of Pretty Smart be Available on Netflix?
However, Netflix has not yet renewed “Pretty Smart” for a second season as of late January 2022. As a result, there is no way to give diehard fans of the new sitcom series a release date, and there is also no reasonable way to predict when production on Season 2 might begin.
Furthermore, we can state categorically that a second season, and not a second half, will be the “next group of episodes potentially served up by Netflix.” All ten episodes of the first season of “Pretty Smart” were shot at Sunset Bronson Studios in Los Angeles, California.
The Netflix release schedule for seasons is sometimes broken up into “parts,” with each half arriving a few months apart. For whatever reason, Netflix only lists “Pretty Smart” as “Season 1,” not “Part 1.” We should know the episode order and when the new season of “Pretty Smart” will be available if Netflix decides to renew the show.
Who is Going to be in Pretty Smart Season 2?: Cast
Due to the lack of an official renewal, it is currently unknown who, if anyone, from the original cast of “Pretty Smart” will return for Season 2.
It’s reasonable for fans to assume that the original cast will return for Season 2 given that there were no shocking deaths or major character departures in the Season 1 finale.
Emily Osment, Gregg Sulkin, Olivia Macklin, Michael Hsu Rosen, and Cinthya Carmona are among those whose names are on the list.
It’s possible that additional regular and guest cast members, such as Kevin Miles (Jake from State Farm) as Claire’s ex-boyfriend Dave, Geoff Ross as Howard, the restaurant’s manager, and Ming-Na Wen as Jasmine, Jayden’s mother, would return.
It’s also conceivable that some of the people who work behind the scenes will come back. Jack Dolgen and Doug Mand, who previously collaborated on “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” serve as the show’s creators and executive producers.
Kourtney Kang, who has worked on “How I Met Your Mother” and “Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.”, and Pamela Fryman, who has directed three episodes of “Pretty Smart,” including the pilot, and most episodes of “How I Met Your Mother,” are also executive producers.
In Other Words, How does Season 2 of Pretty Smart Go Down?
Season 1 of “Pretty Smart” was left on a cliffhanger when Claire (Olivia Macklin) broke up with Dave (Kevin Miles) and kissed Grant (Matthew Perry) (Gregg Sulkin).
Chelsea (Emily Osment) comes in on them kissing just as she’s going to tell her sister that she needs to talk to her about wanting to pursue a relationship with Grant, but only after they check in with Claire to make sure it’s okay.
So, Where is this Complicated Love Triangle Headed?
When Season 2 gets back up, this is the most pressing issue that must be resolved. Osment said on Entertainment Tonight, “I don’t know what’s going to happen in Season 2.” So, I can’t wait to find out!
Sulkin admitted that he, too, was unsure about which sister Grant should be with in Season 2. Grant and Claire have this beautiful naivete, and Grant and Chelsea have this fascinating sense of development and change.
Grant has learned a lot from Chelsea. Since I enjoy working with either Olivia or Emily equally, I don’t mind where the writers take the story.
Michael Hsu Rosen and Cinthya Carmona said on Entertainment Tonight that they hope Grant and Chelsea end up together. That’s probably where we’re headed, however Season 2 will probably have a bit of family drama beforehand.
