Fans will remember Daphne Maxwell Reid replacing Janet Hubert as Aunt Viv and Vernee Watson-Johnson playing Will’s mother Viola “Vy” Smith in the beloved ‘Fresh Prince’ series.

Set in modern-day America, ‘Bel-Air’ reimagines the classic sitcom through a dramatic lens that follows Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air.

As these two worlds collide, Will reckons with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions, and biases of a world far different from the only one he’s ever known.

Executive produced by Will Smith and inspired by Morgan Cooper’s viral trailer, ‘Bel-Air’ takes a fresh approach to this world of swagger, style, and aspiration, while exploring Will’s complex journey through a current lens.

The new series features an ensemble cast that introduces Jabari Banks as Will and a creative team that includes Cooper who serves as director, co-writer, and executive producer, and co-showrunners and executive producers T.J. Brady and Rasheed Newson.

‘Bel-Air’ is currently streaming on Peacock with new episodes premiering every Thursday and the Season one finale streaming on Thursday, March 31 on Peacock.
