‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ Spinoff Series Reportedly in the Works
Will Smith is developing a new Fresh Prince of Bel-Air spinoff, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The outlet reports Westbrook, the actor's new production company with wife Jada Pinkett Smith, will revive the beloved show over 20 years after the original aired its final episode. "In addition to producing Smith-fronted film projects, Westbrook Inc. is developing a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air spinoff series (he still earns hefty royalties from the 1990s NBC sitcom, now licensed to air in 193 territories)," the article reads.
No other details have been revealed thus far, but fans are definitely interested.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air originally aired on NBC from 1990 to 1996 and starred Smith as a fictionalized version of himself, as well as the late James Avery, Janet Louise Hubert, Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell and more.
The rumored spinoff news follows the release of Smith's limited-edition line of athleisure wear, which celebrates his character's style over the years. The collection features 26 items, including a reversible track jacket (inspired by the high school blazer Smith wore on the show), T-shirts, sweatshirts, as well as caps, gym bags and socks.
