However, the streaming giant hasn’t made the official announcement yet. But the reports of its cancelation are circulating on the internet.

Reason Behind Pretty Smart Season 2 Cancelation

Netflix sitcoms are already a rare thing, and when they fail to attract an audience, then it’s highly to receive a cancelation. Subscribers have already seen their favorite sitcoms get axed soon after a run. So it isn’t the first time a show met with such an abrupt ending. However, Pretty Smart did manage to peak on the Netflix US Top 10 list. But the show only secured an eighth place on the list for only three days. It also failed to stay in other regions’ top ten except South Africa, where it remained on the list for almost 11 days.

Well, Netflix hasn’t shown its viewership list yet. But it has recently changed its viewership criteria to renew the show. Netflix is stricter than before, and the renewal is based on the cost vs. viewership graph. Cindy Holland mentioned in an interview that the decision depended on the cost required to produce the show. So if they didn’t get the expected viewership, then there’s no point in continuing with the show. Apart from this, the sitcom has a poor response from the audience and the critics. It only managed to gain a 40% positive reception on Rotten Tomatoes. Well, it’s pretty low for a show. In fact, on IMDb, it just secured 5.8 stars. So it itself reflects the reason behind the Pretty Smart Season 2 cancelation.

What Could Have Happened?

The first season ended on a cliffhanger. After breaking up with Dave, Claire came home and kissed her ex, Grant. The two were busy in passionate kissing, and Grant hadn’t revealed that he was dating her sister Chelsea. As for Chelsea, she was a walking distance away to see Claire kissing Grant. What made the situation more awkward was Chelsea wanted to speak with her sister about her romantic relationship with Claire’s ex. She wished to know if Claire was comfortable for her to date Grant. So if the second season could return, it might explore the fierce love triangle.
