Fresh Prince of Bel Air Reboot: Actually Coming Soon?!?

Everything old is new again!

That's not an exaggeration, as it appears The Fresh Prince of Bel Air is about to be even fresher.

According to TV Line, talks of a reboot/revival are underway with the original star, Will Smith, paving the way for it to happen – from behind the scenes, at least.

It's still in the very early stages, apparently, but Smith's production company, Overbrook Entertainment, is moving in a direction that has sources very excited about the possibilities of a new spin on this old tale.

In the 1990s, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air ran for six seasons and launched the career of the then-rapper's career, so it would be interesting to see for whom he might want to repay the favor. With his backing, it would certainly be a great career opportunity!

It's unclear at this time if they're dabbling in a straight out reboot of the series, like Hawaii Five-0 or if it would be something like The X-Files/Girl Meets World, where the story continues, but with a newer generation of the family. 

Either way, would you be up for the return of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air?
