The cast of 90s sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunited on Monday and definitely got us all singing, “Now this is a story all about how…”
Alfonso Ribeiro took on Instagram to share a snapshot of the group featuring Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Daphne Maxwell Reid and Joseph Marcell and captioned, “Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.”
Alfonso has previously explained that the cast opted out of any sort of official reunion in honor of Avery’s legacy on the show.
Smith has also shut down speculations of a reboot was in the works. “I don’t think ever, like pretty close to when hell freezes over,” Smith shared. “Like we’re going to leave that one alone.”
“Since the passing of my favorite dad in the world, ever on TV, James Avery passed, the chances of a Fresh Prince coming back together will not happen,” he told E! News. “I don’t think we feel as a cast that we would do even our fans justice. We all felt like he was the centerpiece or the nucleus of that show. Without him, it just doesn’t work. So even if the whole cast comes to support me on the show, we’re not looking for that to happen. And that’s OK.”
