Who doesn’t love a blast from the past? Peacock streaming services are bringing back a feel-good classic.
“Bel-Air” is the reboot of the 90’s sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Set to air February 13th, this show will be a more dramatic twist on this story. This series is based on Morgan Cooper’s dramatic fantasy of what a fresh prince reboot could envision.
He then set out to make this a reality. Cooper wrote and directed the new version.
Jabari Banks will be starring as the main character, Will, who was previously portrayed as Will Smith. This will be his breakout debut.
Adrian Holmes will be portraying Uncle Phil. Adrian Holmes is best known for his role in the Bravo series, 19-2, which landed him a Canadian Screen Award.
Cassandra Freeman will be taking over the role of Aunt Viv. She can be seen in movies such as The Inside Man and shows like Atlanta.
Olly Sholotan will be challenging the character of Carlton. He is a talented musician and can be seen in films like Run Hide Fight.

This reboot will have a heavier emphasis on Will’s origins. In the original sitcom, we know that Will got into a fight and his mom sent him to go live with his uncle.
In the remake, Cooper is diving into what is surrounding this fight and the ‘darker’ side of his story.
From the trailer, it is shown that this fight is a little more intense than a silly little argument.
This fight involves guns and leads to a man wanting Will dead.
What happens next?
This will be shown when the first three episodes are released on the Peacock streaming service.
