One of the most iconic TV shows of 1990s The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air could once again come back to our screens in the near future after a former cast member revealed that talks are indeed in fact underway to revive the series which put Will Smith on the road to stardom.
According to Smith’s former rap partner and co-star DJ Jazzy Jeff, TV chiefs in the US are very eager to see the show return 20 years after it ended.
Speaking to the Sun Newspaper Jazzy Jeff said. “There have been talks with people about doing something.”
“I think it would be cool if they did it and go down memory lane again.”
He added: “It’s a blessing to be part of something that people still hold in high regard. You can’t beat that.”
“It’s hard for people to keep their attention span normally, but to be able to keep it for all these years and transcend generations, put their kids onto it, this is deep.”
The DJ’s announcment combined with a recent Twitter photo showing the former cast members reuniting for a reunion has did little to quash the rumour of the show’s return which had huge success during its initial run six year run between 1990-1996.
However former lead star Will Smith has denied reports about a potential return in the past citing actor James Avery’s (Uncle Phil) death as one of the main reasons he would be against rebooting the show, with the actor saying ‘it wouldn’t be the same without James’.
The duo are scheduled to appear together this month. DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will’s first ever live UK performance together will take place at Livewire Festival on Aug 25-27.
