The initial series ran for 6 periods as well as broadcast 148 episodes between 1990 and 1996, pushing Smith to worldwide fame. Currently 23 years given that the last season covered, the publication reports that Smith is in the middle of broadening his global brand name as well as this includes a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air spin-off.
Huge fans of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, aka the 90s TV comedy starring Will Smith, could actually be coming back.
We child you not, the funny, where Smith played a fictional variation of himself as a teen that is sent to move in with his wealthy aunt as well as uncle in their Bel Air manor after entering problem at home, is set to be having a reboot, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Information are under covers for now however the project is evidently being headed up by Westbrook, the holding firm for Smith and also his spouse Jada’s companies which they launched previously this year.
This isn’t the very first time there’s been rumours flowing concerning a brand-new series, followers have actually been speculating regarding it since FOREVER. In the past there were reports that Fresh Prince was returning as a female-led sitcom (since would certainly be great), in addition to others claiming it would certainly be a computer animated series after Smith shared an image of an anime version. Now, it seems like we have finally obtained one of the most official confirmation yet.
Back in 2017, Smith in fact joked that if there was a reboot he ‘d have to play the role of Uncle Phil because he’s currently in his 50s. For true fans though, he’ll always be the somewhat goofy, gangly West Philadelphia child.
Last year Alfonso Ribeiro who played Carlton Banks, Smith’s cousin in the program, said that a rebirth would be impossible after the death of James Avery in 2014, the star that played Uncle Phil.
Ribeiro stated, “Do we really want to see Will and Carlton in their, you recognize, 40s as well as 50s? James Avery, right, he’s really one of the most essential personality on the program … Without him, everything that Will and Carlton did would mean absolutely nothing.”
We’re really hoping Ribeiro is verified incorrect because if any individual can successfully revitalize our favorite 90s funnies for a brand-new target market, we think it’s Will Smith.
