Entertainment news source Variety reported on Thursday that Netflix's acquisition is a "20 episode run." The show is listed on World Screen with a total of 40 episodes of 22 minutes each. The Smile Precure! anime aired 48 episodes.
Variety describes the series:
20-episode run from Saban Brands is set in the magical kingdom of Jubiland, which is invaded by an evil emperor and his band of fairytale villains. A tiny pixie named Candy recruits five preteen girls to form the powerful Glitter Force to help defend Earth from becoming the next target.
World Screen's page for the title uses art from 2012's Smile Precure!. In Smile Precure!, the fantasy kingdom is called Märchenland, but the fairy character Candy's name is unchanged.
