Deadline reports the cast will reunite for an HBO Max reunion special on September 10, exactly 30 years to the day since the show made its premiere on NBC in 1990. While fans sadly won’t be able to see the late James Avery reprise his role as Uncle Phil, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid, Alfonso Ribeiro and DJ Jazzy Jeff will also join.
Produced by Smith’s Westbrook Studios and set to air on Thanksgiving, the night will feature “music, dancing and surprise guests” while taking a look back at the long-running series and its cultural impact.
In addition to the Fresh Prince projects on the slate, Smith will also be bringing the story of Emmett Till and his mother Mamie Till Mobley to TV screens. In partnership with JAY-Z’s production company, Smith and Westbrook will premiere a six-episode series that focuses on how Till’s 1955 killing at the hands of two Mississippi white men set the Civil Rights Movement in motion.
