“Bajer z Bel-Air” is a cult sitcom, which will return next year in a new version – in a different atmosphere. Peacock has just shared a teaser for the drama series “Bel-Air”.
The series “Bajer z Bel-Air”, popular in the 90s, returns in a completely new version. “Bel-Air” is a dramatic reboot of the cult comedy that will be shown on the Peacock platform. Now you can see the first teaser in which Will Smith recites words from the old credits.

“Bel-Air” will consist of one-hour episodes telling a story analogous to that of the original. As in “Bel-Air Fairy Tale,” we will observe Will’s intricate journey from the streets of Philadelphia to a villa in an affluent Los Angeles neighborhood. According to the creators, the story will not lose any of its originality, but will delve deeper into conflicts, emotions and prejudices, which could not be fully shown in the 30-minute sitcom.
The creators of the series, TJ Brady (“The 100”) and Rasheed Newson (“Narcos”), do not hide that they want to do justice to the original and emphasize what they focused on in the new version.
– “Bel-Air” is a coming of age story that celebrates the strength and love of black families. We stayed true to the show’s original premise. However, our new series introduces Will and the Banks family to the world as we know it now. Bringing these iconic figures to life and weaving them into the cultural rhythm of our times was something amazing for us. The series was an important part of our growing up, it was associated with memories and the joy of seeing ourselves portrayed on TV, so it’s important for us to honor this heritage, they said in a statement.
Jabari Banks will play the new Will Smith. Adrian Holmes (“Arrow”) will play Phillip Banks ‘uncle, Cassandra Freeman (“The Enemy Within”) will play Vivian Banks’ new aunt and Olly Sholotan will play Carlton’s cousin. Coco Jones (“Good Luck Charlie”) will star as Hilary, Akira Akbar (“Captain Marvel”) as Ashley and Jimmy Akingbola (“Holby City”) as Geoffrey’s butler. The series will also have its own version of Will’s friend Jazz, co-starring Jordan L. Jones (“Rel”).
