The ‘Fresh Prince’ Reunion We’ve All Waited For



The Banks family held a family reunion.

Alfonso Ribeiro posted a photo of his Fresh Prince of Bel Air family on Instagram, and it is flip-turning everyone’s lives upside down.

In the photo, Alfonso stood in between his TV sisters Tatyana Ali and Karyn Parsons.  Even Will Smith was there with Daphne Maxwell Reid (who played the second Aunt Viv) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey the butler).

How is it possible nobody has aged a day in over 20 years?

Unfortunately, James Avery, who played Uncle Phil passed away in 2013.  In the post Alfonso wrote, “Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.”

Hopefully the cast will get an on-screen reunion someday!  We’ve already passed 20 years from when the show ended in 1996.  Maybe we can get a 30th anniversary of the first show in 2020?

Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.

First Aunt Viv, Janet Hubert, is the only person on earth not happy with the reunion.  It is reported nobody liked her, that probably is why she was replaced for the last 3 seasons.

I’m sure Carlton’s response to her would be:
