In celebration of the show’s 30th anniversary, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is getting an unscripted reunion special at HBO Max.
Will Smith and co-stars including Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid, Alfonso Ribeiro, DJ Jazzy Jeff are participating. It will be taped in September and air on HBO Max around Thanksgiving. According to HBO Max, it will be “a funny and heartfelt night full of music, dancing, and special surprise guests” looking back on the show and the impact it has had since first debuting.
From Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s Westbrook Media, the special will be directed by Marcus Raboy and executive produced by showrunner Rikki Hughes, Miguel Melendez, Lukas Kaiser and Brad Haugen.
This comes after the recent news that a dramatic reboot based on the show is in development at Universal TV from Morgan Cooper.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air airs exclusively on HBO Max, as the streaming service has complete SVOD rights.
