The popular 1990s TV series, ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ starring Will Smith is getting a reboot and we can’t wait. 

The series will return with Bel-Air, an hour-long show that takes inspiration from Morgan Cooper’s fan favourite that portrays the much-loved sitcom as a drama.

The project will be handled by Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s West brook Studios and Universal Television and is currently generating a lot of excitement both with viewers and studios.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new Bel-Air series has been in works for a year since the reimagined version caught Will Smith’s interest after it was posted in March 2019.

Cooper, who is a super fan of the original Fresh Prince series, created and directed the trailer that re-imagined the series as if it were a drama. He will co-write the script, direct it and also be credited as a co-EP.

The original series producers, Smith, Quincy Jones and Benny Medina, as well as creators Andy and Susan Borowitz will all return as executive producers.

Chris Collins will serve as show-runner and executive producer and is set to co-write the script with Cooper.
