Taping began today for the upcoming The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special.
The 30th anniversary reunion includes star Will Smith as well as series regulars Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid and Alfonso Ribeiro, plus recurring co-star DJ Jazzy Jeff.
As previously announced, the special will be a funny and heartfelt night full of music, dancing, and more special surprise guests, in honor of the series that ran for six seasons and 148 episodes. Produced by Westbrook Media, the reunion will launch exclusively on HBO Max around Thanksgiving. HBO Max is the exclusive SVOD home of the full original series library in the US, debuting on the platform when it launched in May.
Smith also revealed that he sat down yesterday with Janet Hubert, who originated the role of Aunt Viv, for the first time in 27 years for an emotional reunion and a candid conversation.
In related news, Peacock this week announced a two-season order for a reimagining of Fresh Prince as a drama, called Bel AIr.
