Will Smith took to social media to reveal that The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special will air on HBO Max this Thursday. The artist formerly known as The Fresh Prince also gave fans a look at what to expect from when the cast got together again, in the form of this trailer.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, which ran for six seasons from 1990-1996, featured Smith playing a fictionalized version of himself named Will, a teen from West Philadelphia sent to live in a Bel-Air mansion with his rich Uncle Phil, played by James Avery, and Aunt Viv — first played by Janet Hubert and later by Daphne Maxwell Reid. With them was their butler, Geoffrey, played by Joseph Marcell, and their three children — Hilary, Carlton and Ashley, played by Karyn Parsons, Alfonso Ribeiro and Tatyana Ali, respectively.
Everyone is accounted for in the trailer except for Avery, who died in 2013 at the age of 68.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special was filmed on September 10, exactly 30 years after the series originally premiered in 1990.
