The dramatic reimagining of the 1990s sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air premiered on February 13, 2022, on Peacock. With the season one finale of Bel-Air set to premiere on March 31, viewers have been wondering about a potential season two of the reboot of their beloved 90s sitcom. 

The original sitcom aired between 1990 and 1996 and gave us talents like Will Smith and there have been long anticipation for a revival. Bel-Air has come a long way since its beginnings as a YouTube short film. Morgan Cooper’s short film of the same name, a reimagining of the original sitcom, went viral and caught everyone’s attention in Hollywood, including Will Smith’s. Smith was so taken with the concept that he took it as the basis for a revival of his original show which he produced through his production company Westbrook Studios.

Bel-Air Season 2: What will it be about?

Season 1 took the 90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to the modern-day American. The reboot follows the same plot as the original from the 1990s, with Will Smith growing up in West Philadelphia and his mother becoming increasingly concerned about him, sending him to live with his uncle Phil in Bel-Air, an upscale Los Angeles neighborhood.

The official synopsis reads: “Set in modern-day America, Bel-Air is a serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the ‘90s 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. With a reimagined vision, Bel-Air will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show.”

It is too early to predict anything about the plot of Bel-Air Season 2. The last episode aired, Episode 4 followed the family as they supported Uncle Phil’s campaign.  The Banks family and Will took to the streets to register voters and Tray came to visit Will in Bel-Air.
