Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air Reboot Reveals Full Cast
Time to hop in a cab and return to Bel-Air!
Peacock’s Bel-Air, a contemporary reboot of the 90’s sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, starring Will Smith, has finally revealed its main cast.
As previously reported, the concept for ‘Bel-Air,’ was sparked after Morgan Cooper created a four-minute trailer of the ’90s sitcom as a drama.
Early this month, newcomer Jabari Banks was cast to play Smith’s character, Will, which he was personally surprised by Will Smith with the life-changing news.
Revealing the news today (9/14), Peacock announced the full cast on their Instagram. Joining Banks will be Cassandra Freeman as Aunt Viv, Olly Sholotan as Carlton, Akira Akbar as Ashley, and Jimmy Akingbola as Geoffrey. Reprising the roles of Lisa and Jazz are Simone Joy Jones and Jordan L. Jones.
Rounding out the cast in the covenant role of Uncle Phil will be Adrian Holmes.
Coco Jones, who is best known for Disney Channel’s original movie, ‘Let It Shine,’ will also join the cast as Hilary Banks, the older sibling of the Banks gang.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, aired in September 1990 and ended after a six-season run. 30 years later, the original cast reunited to celebrate their achievements and the legacy of James Avery, who passed in 2013 at the age of 68.
Bel-Air will air as one-hour episodes, set in modern-day America, and follow the complicated life and journey of the Will Smith character from West Philly to Bel-Air.
