Will Smith Working On ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ Spinoff Series

Will Smith is heading back to Bel-Air as word breaks that his Westbrook Inc. entertainment company is developing a spinoff series based on ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.’

There has been talk of a ‘Fresh Prince’ reboot for years now, but now Westbrook Inc., which was launched by Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith in July, is set to make it a reality as the company seeks to fulfill its mission to “expand the Smith family brand beyond film and TV into new media, technology, and even merchandising.”

The sitcom ran for just six seasons, from 1990 to 1996, but its impact on popular culture is undeniable, as Will Smith noted back in 2018, saying:

“I had no idea that ‘Fresh Prince’ would have that kind of impact. When I look back on it, I can see. It was like, ‘Duh.’ The intracultural racism between the rich blacks and poor blacks and the idea of being uprooted and put into the full mainstream white world, I can see where those ideas would make for a rich show.”

Will still makes plenty of money from royalty payments from the original show, so it only makes sense to know that there is still demand for ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
