The cast of the classic ‘90s comedy series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air recently gathered together recently to start shooting the reunion special that’s coming to HBO Max. Will Smith has shared a couple of photos marking the 30th anniversary of the series.
One of the photos give us our first look at the gang back together, and they’re all smiles. A second image teased special guest Jane Hubert with Smith. Hubert was the original Aunt Viv of the series. Hubert’s exit was controversial, she left the series due to conflicts with Smith. This is the first time in 27 years since they’ve sat down together to talk.
You can check out the photos below. HBO Max also released a Fresh Prince special reel that commemorates the series’ best moments.

In addition, The Fresh Prince clothing brand has also announced today’s launch of a new limited-edition capsule in honor of the show’s anniversary. The 30-piece unisex collection – known as the “30th Anniversary” – features an array of premium apparel and accessories, including jackets, tees, sweatshirts, sweatpants, hats, masks, bags and more that are inspired by The Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith, along with his Grammy Award-winning music partner DJ Jazzy Jeff. It is exclusively available at the brand’s newly launched online store.
DJ Jazzy Jeff said in a statement:
“Very rarely do television programs have such a significant cultural impact 30 years after its release, but to generate this type of excitement in 2020 is really a testament to the fans. This is really a celebration of a legacy and it’s incredible watching the series evolve into a fashion brand and influence an entirely new generation.”
The “30th Anniversary” collection also pays homage to Smith’s Philadelphia roots and also pulls inspiration from his Bel-Air experience in the show, such as starring on the Bel-Air Academy basketball team. Each piece features patterns and prints inspired by the show and the fashion trends of the ‘90s.
