When we look back at the 90s television, there are a handful of sitcoms that have come to define the decade; Seinfeld, Friends, and Fraiser being some of the most obvious.

Another acclaimed show among those ranks is The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the Will Smith-led comedy that helped transform the MC into an international star.

Of course, there are some fans eagerly hoping the series will return at some stage, similar to how Will & Grace is coming back.

Speaking to The Sun, DJ Jazzy Jeff said that there have been talks regarding a reboot, saying: “There have been talks with people about doing something. I think it would be cool if they did it and go down memory lane again.”

Jeff offered little further, instead praising the show: “It’s a blessing to be part of something that people still hold in high regard. You can’t beat that.

“It’s hard for people to keep their attention span normally, but to be able to keep it for all these years and transcend generations, put their kids onto it, this is deep.”

Rumours regarding a revival series were sparked when members of the original cast — including Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), Tatyana Ali (Ashley), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Daphne Reid (Vivien Banks), and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey) — were spotted having dinner together in March.

Later this month, Smith and Jazzy Jeff will headline Livewire Festival in Blackpool, playing the Sunday night. Meanwhile, Smith was recently announced to be joining the cast of Disney’s live-action Aladdin adaptation, voicing the Genie.
