The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is about to make a comeback on the small screen as confirmed by Will Smith, star of the original series. Let’s take a closer look.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series, the iconic sitcom of the 90s which introduced Will Smith to the public, will be entitled to its reboot for at least two seasons. This project is led by Will Smith himself and is based on a viral trailer of 2019 created by Morgan Cooper (see end of article).

Where to watch The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?

This series will be the dramatic counterpart of the original series as described by Peacock, the streaming service that will broadcast the reboot: a “serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the 90’s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. With a reimagined vision, Bel-Air will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show”.

In a video, Will Smith revealed the good news to Morgan Cooper and Chris Collins: “We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season-order from a pitch. I’ve been in this business for 30 years, and that does not happen. They ordered two full seasons of Bel-Air based on the quality of the pitch and the work that you guys have done. So I want to say congratulations. I am hyped”.

Morgan Cooper, whose trailer caught the attention of Will Smith, will participate as writer, director and executive producer. For his part, Chris Collins will participate as showrunner, executive producer and writer.

No air date has yet been announced by Peacock for this new version of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series.
