Will Smith has all but killed hope of a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot, saying the only way it would work would be for him to step in as the new Uncle Phil.
While chances of the original plotline making a comeback are slim, a spin-off titled The Fresh Princess could be on the way! TMZ reports the company that owns the rights to “Fresh Prince” has filed new paperwork to trademark “Fresh Princess” for television and several other media platforms.
