Will Smith reunites with the Fresh Prince of Bel Air cast: Is a reboot in the works?
More than 20 years after the Fresh Prince of Bel Air wrapped, Will Smith and the fictional Banks family were all smiles at a cast reunion.
Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Smith’s Tom Jones-loving cousin Carlton on the 1990s sitcom, posted a picture on Instagram on Monday of the cast getting together and wrote, "Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete."
James Avery who played Smith's uncle Phil Banks who takes him in, died in 2013 after complications from open heart surgery.
Instead, Ribeiro, who made a career comeback after winning Dancing with the Stars in 2014, posed with co-stars Smith, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Daphne Reid and Joseph Marcell. As always, Janet Hubert, the original actress who played Aunt Viv, was absent. She has long been vocal about her feud with Smith and Ribeiro.
Fans of the show may not want to get their hopes up for a series revival. Smith said last year that a reboot of the series will happen 'pretty close to when hell freezes over.'
