Will Smith reunites Fresh Prince cast on remote show

The famous mansion from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has been listed on Airbnb by none other than the show’s lead star, Will Smith.

The California property was the setting for the NBC sitcom that ran from 1990 to 1996.  

Smith, who announced a reboot of the series last week, said he is working with the mansion's owners.

“It’s just as fly as it was when I first rolled up the driveway,” Smith wrote in the  Airbnb description. “And this time, I’m handing you the keys so you’ll have my wing of the mansion all to yourself – but my sneaker collection is off limits, aight?”

Fans of the show can stay in the bedroom of Smith’s character, and “all meals will be provided and served on silver platters, of course”. There is also a pool – “great for dips”.

The listing also states that guests can raid Smith’s wardrobe, play basketball inside and listen to throwback classics on the record player.

Overnight bookings are $30 (£23) and are available on five specific dates only (2, 5, 8, 11 and 14 October). Booking opens on 29 September.

While Smith will not be there to greet guests, his music collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff and a socially distanced mansion concierge will welcome visitors virtually upon arrival.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. Find out where the series’ cast are now, three decades after its initial US release.
