Series Reboot

Who doesn’t love a blast from the past? Peacock streaming services are bringing back a feel-good classic. 

The Fresh Prince

“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.

The Show

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. 

Fresh Prince Reboot

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.
