Will, 51, is set to join his co-stars for a one-off special reunion to celebrate the show’s anniversary.
The special is scheduled to record on September 10 and is expected to arrive on the HBO Max streaming service around Thanksgiving, which falls on November 26 this year.
Smith will be joined by co-stars Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian Banks) and Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), as well as DJ Jazzy Jeff (The jazz).
James Avery, who played Uncle Phil in The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, died in 2013.
The show starred Smith as a fictionalized version of himself – a streetwise teenager who is sent to live with his wealthy aunt and uncle in their Bel Air mansion after a fight in his hometown of Philadelphia.
It ran for six seasons from 1990 to 1996. The cast reunited in April for Smith’s Snapchat series Will From Home, while earlier this month it was announced that a dramatic reboot of the series is in preparation for.
The reboot is based on Morgan Cooper’s viral Bel-air video. This isn’t the first classic series HBO Max has announced a reunion for.
The long-awaited Friends Reunion special has experienced multiple delays due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The one-off show was slated to launch with HBO Max in May, before Hollywood production ceased. A new launch date has not been set.
Will and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith recently made headlines when singer August Alsina came forward to claim he had an affair with Jada courtesy of Will.
The famous couple sat down for a special episode of their Facebook Watch Red Table Talk show to set the record straight.
They revealed that they actually split up secretly when Jada got into an “entanglement” with August.
The couple said they fully believed at the time that their marriage was over and that they were ready to never speak to each other again.
But they have since moved past it all and are stronger than ever.
