Many fans last week called for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to be brought back with Will Smith taking on the role of Uncle Phil.
And Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks, sent followers into another frenzy as he fuelled reboot rumours by sharing a photo of the original cast reuniting on Monday. The actor, 45, shared a picture of the on-screen family enjoying a day at Nobu in Malibu.
The image shows Will Smith reuniting with the cast from The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air – more than 20 years after the show ended its six-year run. In the Instagram post, Ribeiro wrote: “Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. “Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.” Avery, who played Uncle Phil, died in 2013.
The nostalgic picture showed Tatyana Ali, 38, who played Ashley Banks, looking glamorous in a silver dress as she stood next to a suited Alfonso. He linked arms with Karyn Parsons, 50, who played pretty but ditzy Hilary Banks.
Main character Will Smith, 48,- who played himself, stood beaming in the middle as he held onto Daphne Etta Maxwell, 68, who played his on-screen mum Vivian after taking over the role from Janet Huburt in season three. And butler Joseph Marcell, who played Geoffrey Butler was also on-hand.
