(New York Post) – Will Smith charmed us all as the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” in the 1990s.
And the star handed out some much needed good news on the 30th anniversary of the show Thursday night via Instagram.
The 51-year-old actor was reunited with his co-stars of the sitcom, as they gathered to celebrate the anniversary by filming a reunion special.
Will posted a picture in the old Banks mansion alongside Tatyana Ali (Ashley), Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Viv No.2) and Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton), as well as the recurring DJ Jazzy Jeff.
He captioned the image: “Today is exactly 30 YEARS since The @FreshPrince of Bel-Air debuted! So we’re doin’ something for y’all… a for real Banks Family Reunion is comin’ soon to @HBOmax! RIP James. #FreshPrince30th.”
James Avery — aka Uncle Phil — died in 2013.
But what really got fans worked up Thursday night: A second picture revealed Will burying the hatchet with the original Aunt Viv, Janet Hubert.
They are pictured seated together on camera for the first time in 27 years.
