No one expected a reboot of The Prince of Bel-Air. One of the most functional sitcoms of the nineties that catapulted Will Smith to stardom and paved the way for him to become the actor we know today. An excellent comedy series that few “buts” can put. However, with so much fever for remakes, reboots and sequels, this fiction also had to fall in some way to make it through the televisions of every home again. Although this time in a somewhat different way.
Peacock has released the first trailer for Bel-Air, the new series starring Jabari banks, which collects the witness of Smith, who is also present in this short footage singing a most special rap. We leave it to you below:
A dramatic tone reboot
The new one Bel-Air not following in the footsteps of its predecessor and avoiding the comedy key by which it was built. Here, we will have a drama from beginning to end (although it will probably be inevitable to have a dose of humor, but in principle it should not be the main thing). The story will focus on America today and will even look at the steps that the character of Will Smith took to move from west Philadelphia to the incredible mansions and luxuries of Bel-Air.
Of course, even if the series takes its liberties, the original characters will remain, such as Phil and Viv Banks, Geoffrey or Carlton. Characters that will be played by an entirely new cast with Adrian Holmes, Cassandra Freeman, Olly Sholotan, Akira Akbar, Jimmy Akingbola and Jordan L. Jones.
The series, which already has two confirmed seasons with an episode length of 30 minutes, will be available from 2022 from Peacock and he will have, more than certain, all eyes fixed on her.
