Will Smith is taking us down memory lane with a “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” reunion later this month. The actor recently shared the show's first trailer, which ended with the most shocking guest appearance.


“Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” was, without a doubt, one of the most iconic sitcoms of the ‘90s, shaping the career of the megastar Will Smith who acted in the leading role.

This year, fans will get to relive that era once more with an exciting reunion show set for release on November 19, 2020. Smith shared the trailer of the long-awaited show on his YouTube channel.

Smith introduced the trailer with a reference to his Instagram post from September on the 30th anniversary of the show’s debut.

The post featured the cast sitting in the iconic living room from the show and revealed that the reunion was already in the works. The two-minute video clip continued with Smith joking:


“You not ready for this trailer. You couldn’t be ready for this trailer!”

As the trailer began, Smith could be seen walking into the famous mansion along with Daphne Maxwell Reid, Tatyana Ali, Joseph Marcell, Karyn Parsons, and DJ Jazzy Jeff, who Smith had recently visited the mansion with. Alfonso Ribeiro was the last to appear from an upstairs room, surprising the rest of the cast.


The trailer progressed into short clips of significant moments and conversations from the show as the actors reminisced about the show’s six-year run.

The actors discussed their chemistry with one another, particularly the relationship between Smith and Ribeiro, whose banter shaped the show.

Another highlighted conversation in the trailer centered around how the actors came to star in the successful show. It is revealed that Jeff turned the show down several times before finally accepting the offer. Reid also admitted that, initially, she was not interested in acting alongside a rapper.


Towards the end of the trailer, the cast members reflected on the role of the late James Avery, who played the patriarch of the show, Uncle Phil. Smith admits that he respected Avery and sought his approval as an actor.

The trailer ended with a surprise appearance by Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv for the first three seasons before being fired and replaced by Reid. Smith and Hubert had not sat down together in 27 years, but Smith felt that he could not celebrate 30 years of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” without the actress.

The reunion comes at the perfect time for fans who are already anticipating a reboot of the show. In September, Smith announced that Peacock had ordered two seasons of the drama, which will premier in 2021.

The drama, simply named “Bel-Air,” came to life after Morgan Cooper’s trailer of the reimagined show went viral, garnering over six million YouTube views over a few months. Smith will be acting as co-producer of the drama.


Since appearing on the timeless sitcom, Smith went on to snag numerous blockbuster movie lead roles. His “French Prince” costars also went on to have hugely successful careers in film and music.

However, Ross Bagley, who played Little Nicky, didn't pursue any further acting role and leads a normal now. Bagley now works as a professional DJ by the stage name DJ Rossy B.
