The Banks family — including Will Smith, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid, and Alfonso Ribeiro, as well as DJ Jazzy Jeff — is getting back together again to look back on the show’s cultural impact. The sitcom ran on NBC for six seasons, from 1990 to 1996, stopping just short of reaching 150 episodes.
The family previously reunited in April on Will’s Snapchat series Will From Home, where the cast paid tribute to James Avery, who played Phillip Banks and passed away in 2014. Earlier this month, it was announced that Will is developing a Fresh Prince reboot: Based on Morgan Cooper’s viral video, Bel-Air, it’ll reimagine the show as a gritty drama.
The 30th-anniversary reunion special is set to tape on Sept. 10 and will debut exclusively on HBO Max around Thanksgiving. Fans can enjoy the show’s entire run now on HBO Max.
