Will Smith Brings ‘Fresh Prince’ Reboot To Peacock!!!!

A reimagined Fresh Prince is coming to Peacock. Will Smith brings to life a brand new way of looking at the beloved sitcom.

Fresh Prince Reboot, “Bel-Air” Is Dark And Dramatic

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air is getting a reboot.

Airing from 1990-1996, it’s been 30 years since the beloved sitcom left the air.

But Will Smith is bringing it all back in a dramatic twist to one of America’s favorite black sitcoms.

Back in 2019, a fan (Morgan Cooper) uploaded a reimagining of the popular comedy t.v. show.

But this time, it was done in a dark, dramatic way and caught the attention of Will Smith himself.

Needless to say, the video went viral.

Fast forward to today, and a trailer was just released for the upcoming drama called, “Bel-Air”.

That’s right…Will is leaving Philly and headed back to Uncle Phil’s crib in Bel-Air…again.

So What Will It Be About This Time?

Though the story will be about the same, it will not be in the lens of a comedy.

This time around, Will’s journey from the streets of Philly to the gated mansion of Uncle Phil will dive deeper into his conflicts, emotions, and biases.

Expanding on areas where it was impossible to explore in a 30-minute sitcom format.

That doesn’t mean we won’t see nods to the original. Swagger will still be there.

However, the overall feel will be much darker.
