Will Is Coming Back: Bel-Air Renewed For Season 3 At Peacock
The hit Peacock original drama Bel-Air, based on the 1990s sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, is coming back for Season 3.
Will and his friends aren’t done yet. Peacock’s record-breaking drama series Bel-Air is officially coming back to Peacock for a third season following the immense popularity of Season 1 and an already stellar Season 2.
Peacock announced Friday that the original hit will return to the streamer following the conclusion of Season 2. However, no official release date has been set for the Season 3 premiere just yet.
For those unfamiliar, Bel-Air is a reimagining of the culture-defining 1990s sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air that made Will Smith a household name. In 2019, Morgan Cooper made a concept trailer that reimagined the iconic sitcom as a drama set in an upscale part of Los Angeles. The trailer quickly went viral and now Morgan is hard at work as an executive producer on the second season of the show and will get to do it a third time in the coming months.
So far, the one-hour drama series has been an outright success for Peacock. Last year it was the streamer’s most-watched original series premiere and the Season 2 premiere in February was the most-watched original sophomore show on the platform to date. The series focuses on Will, a young man from West Philadelphia who makes his way to the upscale Los Angeles neighborhood to stay with relatives in their gated mansion community. He spends most of his journey on the show reckoning the two worlds he now finds himself a part of and the power imbalances, biases, and conflicts that come with having a foot in two very different worlds.
The show stars Jabari Banks, Adrian Holmes, Cassandra Freeman, Olly Sholotan, Coco Jones, Akira Akbar, Jimmy Akingbola, Jordan L. Jones, and Simone Joy Jones. The latest episodes of the show saw the return of Tatyana Ali, who played the original Ashley Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and makes a recurring guest star appearance.
Bel-Air is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group and Westbrook Studios. Carla Banks Waddles serves as showrunner, writer and executive producer.
New episodes of Bel-Air drop every Thursday on Peacock and will continue to run Season 2 through April 27 before everyone gets back together for the newly announced Season 3.
