According to TVLine, the reboot of the sitcom is currently “in the the very early stages of development”.
So far, Will Smith has been reported to work behind the scenes in the production department. But even just the actor’s involvement in the show can perhaps highlight the show is in good hands, above all, in the hands of its original star.
TVLine also reports that the reboot will be produced under the actor’s Overbrook Entertainment company and will be sent to the networks soon to be aired.
No official synopsis or plot has been confirmed as of yet, but it has been reported that the show will head towards a new angle where there will be “a present-day Fresh Prince” while at the same time it will be close to the spirit of the original series.
