The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is a beloved 90’s television sitcom that helped propel Will Smith to stardom. Now word is that Smith is producing a reboot of the show that made him household name. 

Reports TV Line:

TVLine has learned exclusively that the exploding revival craze is expanding to include the classic ’90s sitcom, with original star Will Smith leading the charge (this time solely as a producer).

According to multiple sources, Smith’s production shingle, Overbrook Entertainment, is in the very early stages of developing a present-day Fresh Prince reboot that puts a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of the original series. (An official longline is still being hammered out.)

I’m told a pitch is being finalized now and Overbrook will begin shopping it around in the coming weeks. Smith would serve as an EP alongside his Overbrook producing partners James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Would you be into seeing a Fresh Prince of Bel Air remake, or is it too soon? Let us know in the comments.
