The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is making a comeback!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the cast of the beloved sitcom will reunite for a special set to air on HBO Max. The unscripted reunion special will tape on September 10 and air on the streaming platform later this year. Together, the cast will celebrate 30 years since Fresh Prince debuted on NBC.
In addition to Will Smith, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid, Alfonso Ribeiro and DJ Jazzy Jeff will all participate in the reunion. In a statement about the reunion, HBO Max said the reunion will feature music, dancing and some exciting surprise guests.
The Fresh Prince reunion isn't the only nostalgic programming coming to HBO Max this year, either. Both the casts of The West Wing and Friends are set to reunite for HBO Max specials, as well. Like the Fresh Prince reunion, the Friends special will be an unscripted retrospective look at the show. The West Wing reunion, however, will see the cast reenact the season three episode 'Hartsfield Landing' from the show's original run.
Which reunion are you most looking forward to?
