The reunion special is exciting news for Fresh Prince fans, but this isn’t the first time the cast has appeared together since the series ended. In April, they came together in a virtual reunion for Smith’s Snapchat show, Will At Home.
With The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air being one of the most popular sitcoms of the ’90s, fans will no doubt tune in to watch the reunion and will likely draw more traffic and subscribers for HBO Max. While the special will sadly be without the beloved Avery, who died in 2013, it will still be nice to see the Banks family back together on TV to celebrate the memorable sitcom.
According to TVLine, the original cast of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is returning for an HBO Max special this fall to celebrate the 30th anniversary since the show first aired.
The reunion special is “an unscripted special looking back at the series and the cultural impact [it] has had since its debut.”
The show’s returning cast members include Smith, Ribeiro, Reid, Ali, Parsons, DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz), and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey). Produced by Smith’s Westbrook Media, the reunion is scheduled to tape on September 10 and set to premiere around Thanksgiving. Marcus Raboyis will direct the special, which HBO Max has teased to have surprise guests
