'Fresh Prince' Reunion Gets HBO Max Premiere Date, Trailer
Will Smith is ready to tell viewers how he became the prince of a town called Bel-Air — again.
Smith on Friday shared a trailer for HBO Max's Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special, as well as its premiere date: Nov. 19. The special reunites Smith with the surviving cast of the 1990s NBC comedy — Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid and Alfonso Ribeiro — and DJ Jazzy Jeff, who recurred on the show.
The special taped in September, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the show's premiere, on a re-created set of the Banks family living room. It will also feature a candid conversation between Smith and Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv for the first three seasons before Reid took over the role.
The trailer for the special showcases the cast reminiscing about their time on the show, as well as solo segments where the actors reflect on The Fresh Prince's impact and legacy. There's also a tribute to the late James Avery, who played Uncle Phil.
Smith's Westbrook Media is producing the reunion special. Rikki Hughes serves as showrunner and executive produces with Miguel Melendez, Lukas Kaiser, James Lassiter and Brad Haugen for Westbrook Media. Raphael Saadiq is executive music producer.
