Pretty Smart

Seasons: 1

Created By: Jack Dolgen and Doug Mand

Starring: Emily Osment, Gregg Sulkin, Olivia Macklin, Cinthya Carmona, Michael Hsu Rosen

Pretty Smart was one of the most underrated new Netflix shows of 2021, but the average Netflix viewer probably wouldn’t agree… mostly because the sitcom made little impact upon its premiere in October 2021 and wasn’t particularly well-received by critics.

Young & Hungry alum Emily Osment leads the stellar ensemble cast as Chelsea, an otherwise stuffy and judgmental academic, whose life takes an unexpected turn when she’s dumped by her professor boyfriend and forced to move in with her sister and her eccentric roommates.

It’s a culture shock comedy with a familiar setup, but there’s something about the chemistry of this dynamic cast that just makes it work. On paper, it’s a rather basic sitcom, yet it’s incredibly watchable if you’re in the mood for a some very welcome fun and joy.

Netflix hasn’t announced whether Pretty Smart will return for season 2 as of December 2021, but we’re hopeful that the streamer will keep the sitcom around for more episodes. We want the laughs to keep coming from one of Netflix’s best comedies in a long time.
