The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air reboot is moving forward at Peacock and they have just announced who will be taking on the iconic role of Will in the upcoming series.
In a video posted to their youtube page, Will Smith hops on zoom to announce that newcomer Jabari Banks will take on the role.
While there is no release date as of yet the show received a 2 season order back in September of 2020. The synopsis of the show explains that the reboot will be set in the modern-day but will keep close the same themes of the original.
"Set in modern-day America, Bel-Air is a serialized dramatic analogue of the 90’s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air."
