Now this is a story all about how Will’s life got flipped turned upside down… The lighthearted, feel-good ‘90s sitcom you all know and love is getting a dramatic makeover in Peacock’s reimagining of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
The new series, simply titled, Bel-Air, will still follow West Philly teenager Will Smith, who, after some trouble back home, is moved out to live with his aunt and uncle in Los Angeles, California. Bel-Air, to be exact. This time around, the show will take the form of an hour-long drama and tackle bigger conflicts and complex issues that the original sitcom was unable to take on in full due to the 30-minute episode format.
The Peacock Original is executive produced by Fresh Prince breakout star Will Smith, and was inspired by a mock trailer for a film that reframed the sitcom as a drama. The reboot will stream exclusively on Peacock starting Feb. 13 with the release of the first three episodes.
Bel-Air will see the return of beloved Fresh Prince characters including Uncle Phil, Aunt Viv, Carlton, Hilary, and Ashley. Newcomer Jabari Banks stars as Will, alongside Adrian Holmes, Cassandra Freeman, Olly Sholotan, Coco Jones, Akira Akbar, Jimmy Akingbola, Jordan L. Jones and Simone Joy Jones.
