NOW THIS IS A STORY ALL ABOUT HOW MY WIG GOT SNATCHED AND THROWN TO THE GROUND. Why? Because our 90s nostalgia is being fed with the allegations of Will Smith allegedly working on a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air spinoff! Literally. Wig? Don’t know her.
In an article by The Hollywood Reporter, it was stated that Will and his wife, Jada’s company, Westbrook, is looking at producing some Smith-fronted film projects and allegedly working on a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air spinoff series.
So, what will the reboot entail? An older Will with a son? Is he famous? Are we having a new Will and telling the story from a modern perspective? We don’t have any information about the series, but we do know right now that it is a thing. It’s a pretty unexpected piece of news, since Will previously said that he would be involved in a reboot “when hell freezes over”, even if his son, Jaden, was cast in the lead role. Someone better go check on Satan, then.
The report also states that Mr Smith still earns a substantial amount in royalties from the sitcom that’s licensed to air in over 190 countries. Damn, son. He’s got that DRIP (in solid gold.)
What would you like to see from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air spinoff? Who would you like cast in it? Let us know by tweeting us @THPMag! We’re dying to know your thoughts.
