Any '90s kid who hears, "Now this is a story all about how…," knows how that sentence — and the two minutes that follow it — goes. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air made such an impact on pop culture in the six seasons it was on the air that now, more than 20 years after the final episode, people are still singing along to the theme song!
Given the recent onslaught of reboots (Twin Peaks, anyone?), it's natural for fans to want the Will Smith-starring comedy to come back to TV. But when asked whether the NBC sitcom will ever get revived, the actor-slash-rapper-slash-comedian crushed our dreams when he said, “I don’t think [so] — like, pretty close to when hell freezes over. Pretty close, like, we’re gonna leave that one alone.” Whyyyyyyyyyyy?!
Alfonso Ribeiro (aka Carlton Banks) also said it “ain’t gonna happen.” Well, we certainly can't imagine Bel-Air without Will and Carlton (though other shows have tried). Since they won't be reuniting on screen, scroll down to see what the cast looks like now!
