​Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro and the whole Fresh Prince gang gather back in the high-end living room that started it all in HBO Max’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion.

Smith announced the premiere date across his social handles. The unscripted special, which was taped in Los Angeles on the 30th anniversary of the original series’ premiere date, will feature Smith joined by series regulars Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid and Ribeiro as well as recurring co-star and Smith’s one-time rap partner, DJ Jazzy Jeff. Besides chats on the couch, the special also will feature music and dancing.

Smith also sits down with Janet Hubert, who originated the role of Aunt Viv, for the first time in 27 years for a candid conversation.

Produced by Smith’s Westbrook Media, the reunion will launch exclusively on HBO Max on November 19. HBO Max is the exclusive streaming home of the full original series library in the U.S., which debuted on the platform when it launched in May.

Marcus Raboy directs the special, which is executive produced by Rikki Hughes, who also serves as showrunner, as well as Miguel Melendez, Lukas Kaiser, James Lassiter, and Brad Haugen for Westbrook Media. Raphael Saadiq serves as executive music producer.
