Seeing as how there is nothing sacred from your childhood that won't be taken and repackaged for a new generation of teenagers, so it goes that 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' is getting its own spinoff.
In a new piece by THR, the long-rumoured spinoff was confirmed and will be produced by Smith himself through his own production house, Westbrook. The series, believe it or not, still regularly nets Smith hefty cheques as the series is still in syndication in over 193 countries.
Running from 1990 to 1996 and producing 148 episodes, 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' was Smith's first acting role, having previously been known as a singer and recording artist. Smith only took the role out of necessity, as the then-singer was left heavily in debt after tax issues.
Currently, no cast have been announced as of yet and no air date has been set. There isn't even a plot summary or synopsis yet, so the likelihood is that the series won't be on air for quite some time. That said, 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' is a TV comedy classic, so you've got to imagine there's a lot riding on it working.
Just as a reminder of how good it is, here's Carlton doing his dance because it's so, so, good.
