About a year ago, rumors were circulating online of a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot and it was being said that Will Smith was even on board as a producer.
Yeah, well that’s never happening. In the words of the Fresh Prince himself, the show’s return will happen when “Hell freezes over!”
“I don’t think ever, like pretty close to when hell freezes over,” Smith said about a reboot of the classic sitcom while promoting Suicide Squad. “Like we’re going to leave that one alone.”
Apparently, the rumors stemmed from some reports saying that Smith was working on an original show that might be inspired by the Fresh Prince’s fish-out-of-water storyline.
Unfortunately for fans, neither show ever came to be. I guess we’ll just have to make due with re-runs of the classic series.
What do you guys think? Would you watch a Fresh Prince reboot? Should Hollywood just leave it alone?
