It has some of the writers and most of the voice cast returning from Friendship Is Magic, but it also features a different art style and a slice-of-life narrative.[5] Unlike Friendship Is Magic, each episode is 11 minutes long, consisting of two five-minute segments. A second season for the series premiered on April 10,[6] and concluded on May 22, 2021.


The main setting of Pony Life is Sugarcube Corner, a bakery operated by Pinkie Pie that she and her friends from Friendship Is Magic, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Rarity and Fluttershy often use as a hangout. The series explores comedic, slice of life stories that they experience, primarily at Sugarcube Corner. The series uses an art style based on Japanese chibi. As a reboot, it has no continuity with Friendship Is Magic. This allows for the existence of new characters such as Pinkie Pie's brother Octavio Pie, as well as the adapting out of certain other characters from the original series.
