NBC’s The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, starring Will Smith, is among the most influential sitcoms of all time. Therefore, fans were very skeptical when Peacock announced the reboot of the classic show. However, with the premiere of the first season, any shred of doubt they had is now gone away. The reboot is simply brilliant. It has taken old fans on a beautiful trip in nostalgia while also attracting news viewers to the show. The first season of Bel-Air just ended yesterday. But it is time enough to make the fans curious about Bel-Air Season 2.
Bel-Air Renewed For Second Season?
The first season of the coming of age comedy series Bel-Air debuted on Peacock on February 13, 2022. While the season finale aired on March 31, 2022. And in regards to Bel-Air Season 2, we have nothing but good news for the fans of the show. The series was originally picked up for two seasons by Peacock. Therefore the second season is confirmed. Showrunners Morgan Cooper and Chris Collins confirmed this back in September 2020. They stated, “We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season-order from a pitch.”
Meanwhile, the lead star of the original series Will Smith, while talking about the reboot said, “I’ve been in this business for thirty years and that does not happen. They ordered two full seasons of ‘Bel-Air’ based on the quality of the pitch and the work that you guys have done. So, I want to say congratulations. I am hyped.”
What To Expect From Bel-Air Season 2?
At the end of the first season finale, we saw that Phil decided to take care of his family by choosing to stay at home. Meanwhile, with the return of Will’s father, Lou, the equation in the Banks family is completely altered. However, his and Will’s reunion did not go as planned. When Lou laid a hand on his son, Will left the house in a fury, as he was feeling abandoned and angry. On the other hand, Jazz found him and tried to convince him to go back. When Hilary mentions Ivy purchasing Kylo’s shares in the Crib of Influence, Carlton and Lisa go in search of Will.
