Several shows are getting their reboots and a spin-off, such as Avatar: The Last Airbender is getting its TV Series, and La Casa De Papel is getting Berlin. One of the anticipated Reboots at Peacock is The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, which will employ the original premise but with a modern setting. The Sitcom launched Will Smith’s career; the American actor and rapper known for ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand’ has grown to be among the notable stars in Hollywood. It may have been long coming as shortly after a fan’s video went viral, Peacock announced the upcoming series, greenlighting two series at once. With Jabari as the new Smith, will he live up to the expectations of the original series fans?
Bel-Air Season 1 Release Date: When Will It Air?
Fans who loved The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will get to see its reboot on 13th February 2022. The drama will have a modern setting and employ a dramatic retelling of Smiths’ Journey from the West Philadelphian Streets to the auspicious mansions of Bel-Air. The first season of the original series had 25 episodes, but we could expect less in the reboot, considering the episode’s run time will be more than the original one.
Bel-Air Season 1 Cast: Who’s On Board?
Will Smith played Will Smith, the series protagonist, but news has it that Jabari Banks will take his place. Jabari has big shoes to fill, but with Will to guide him through, he may surpass our expectations. The series will feature very notable casts such as Adrain Holmes, the Award-winning Canadian actor famous for acting Frank Pike in the ‘Arrow’ Series. He will play Phillip Banks alongside Cameron Wong as Bel Air Lacrosse. Tyler Barnhardt will play Connor Satterfield, Cassandra Freeman as Vivian Banks, Carlton Banks as Olly Sholotan, Rachell Leco playing Cloe, Coco Jones acting Hillary Banks, and Jon Beavers (Animal Kingdom) as Kylo. Other casts include Akira Akbar, Benita Krista, Simone Joy Jones, Cristian Soto, Troy Hussman, Jalen McKoy, and Ahmad Dugas.
Bel-Air Season 1 Plot: What Will Happen?
T. J. Brady and Rasheed Newson commented that the series is a story that celebrates strengths and the love that comes with a black Family. They added that they stayed true to the earlier premise, which could only mean a thing; the story will follow closely on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air plot but add a little twist to it. In the original series, we saw will smith leave the West Philly Islands to the Bel Air mansions, but in the new series, the story will start with him already in the mansion. Bel Air will shed more light on the conflicts, emotions untold, and biases that were not brought out in the 30 minutes Sitcom. Despite its retwist, it will still deliver the original show’s gloat.
Bel-Air Season 1 Trailer: When will it be out?
Peacock released the First official teaser on 23rd November 2021. The original series fans could not help but pick out the similarities and the references to the former. The trailer shows Will Smith reading the show opening quite dramatically. We can also spot Jabari Banks, the new Will Smith donning the same Jordans Will Smith wore in the original series. As we wait for the reboot’s debut, check out other Will film works such as ‘One Strange Work,’ ‘Welcome to Earth,’ ‘All of Us,’ and many more.
