“In world isolation bored and going insane,
on Netflix is where I spend most of my days.
Chilling out, maxin’, relaxin’, all alone
Filming some meetings while I’m working from home.
When a couple of guys I used to watch on TV,
showed up on Snapchat and started talking through scenes.
I ran to the door and my girlfriend got scared,
When I screamed, “Will Smith is on Zoom with the cast of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’.”
That’s right. First the first time in nearly 25 years, the cast of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air have reunited, thanks to the wonders of Zoom. The majestic event took place as part of Will Smith’s Snapchat series “Will From Home” and brought together (almost) all of your favourite characters from the hit 90s sitcom.
Among the Zoom attendees were Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian Banks), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey Butler) and DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz). “Reunited and it feels so… AHHHHHH! It’s been 30 years since the first season of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air so I thought we should have ourselves a lil Zoom reunion!!” Smith wrote in an Instagram post.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion marks the first time the cast has appeared on-screen together since the NBC series ended back in May 1996, but fans won’t have to wait this long to see them in action again. The second instalment of the two-part finale to Will From Home will see the cast return for more questions and reveals. While most of the cast were in attendance, James Avery, who played Uncle Phil throughout the series tragically passed last year. According to reports, the second part of the Will From Home series will feature a tribute to the late actor. Part two kicks off on Thursday at 6am ET.
