'Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' Is Getting A Reboot So We Will Just Chill Out, Max, And Relax Until It's Here

90s kids, rejoice because this is the best thing 2020 has given us.

'Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' Is Getting A Reboot So We Will Just Chill Out, Max, And Relax Until It's Here

Now, this is a story all about how, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" is getting a reboot, and every '90s kid is currently screaming. (Yes, you heard me correctly.)

After a fan-made video went viral in 2019, Will Smith and Morgan Cooper, the creator of the viral video, are teaming up to create a reboot of the beloved series. While some fans noticed differences in some of the characters' traits and mannerisms, the premise is the same: Will is getting into trouble in Philadelphia and sent to live in the upscale Los Angeles area with his aunt and uncle.


The tone, though, is much darker as Will found himself in LA after getting caught with a gun on a basketball court, contrary to the lighthearted rap we heard at the start of each episode in the '90s.

I have to admit: This is still pretty exciting. While some may critique the harsher or darker tone to the show, I think it could actually be a good thing. We all love the original show, but we're also not kids anymore. Perhaps, a reboot that reframes our beloved show in a more grown-up way will be able to reach us the same way the lighthearted version did in the '90s.

It's also important for the media to show the tough parts of life in realistic ways, and by making the tone of the show a touch darker, I think it speaks to some of the harsh realities that people are facing across America today. This show could be more than just a nostalgic feel-good moment for the fans.

The '90s were a great time to be alive in general, but "Fresh Prince" was definitely one of the upsides to the decade... like a huge upside. Considering how 2020 has started, this may be the turnaround we need.

Oh, and PS: "Saved By The Bell" also just announced a reboot. Double win for '90s kids.
