Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reboot

It seems like the entertainment industry is running out of original ideas. The new trend is to take a once popular movie or TV show, dust it off, and give it a shiny new reboot. Well since nothing seems to be sacred these days I guess there is no better time than now to start working on a new Fresh Prince of Bel-Air TV series…At least that’s what I would assume Will Smith was thinking when it came to this completely new and original idea.

According to TVLine Will Smith is looking to revive the show that once made him so popular. However, he won’t necessarily be staring in it, but instead will be producing it. Something tells me that with the way Will Smith has been handling his career as of late his son Jaden Smith will probably be the one moving to his Aunty and Uncle’s in Bel-Air.

I guess only time will tell if this is true or not, but it seems pretty legit to me. I can’t imagine how this will work and to be honest I don’t really think that it’s necessary. The original Fresh Prince is on all the time in syndication and much like the sequels to the movies that made him famous, will anyone even care if Will Smith himself isn’t playing the lead role…or at leas some role? As always I want to know what you think Nerd Nation. Will you watch a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot and if so, what would you like to see from it?
