Will Smith takes fans down memory lane to celebrate 33rd anniversary of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”

Over three decades ago, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” graced the screens of NBC, marking the beginning of a cultural phenomenon. Little did audiences know that this sitcom, led by its star Will Smith and a talented ensemble cast, would etch itself as an enduring icon in the realms of pop culture and entertainment. Today, September 10th, commemorates the 33rd anniversary of its debut.

Will Smith marked this milestone with a heartfelt Instagram post. He shared a snapshot of himself standing in front of the iconic Brentwood residence used as the exterior of the Banks family’s fictional Bel-Air home. His caption simply read, “Moved in 33 years ago today.”

This dose of nostalgia sparked a wave of emotions in the comment section. Fans expressed a blend of inspiration and nostalgia, with one writing, “I feel inspired and old at the same time.” Another remarked, “All the feels! What a time, what a legacy.” A third fondly recalled, “I remember DJ Jazzy Jeff getting thrown out at least 20 times.”

In 2020, Will Smith, now a box office megastar, teamed up with the owner of the iconic residence, opening its doors for temporary rentals on Airbnb.

The wildly successful sitcom wrapped up its remarkable journey in May 1996 after six seasons, totaling 148 episodes and featuring numerous memorable guest appearances from stars like Jada Pinkett Smith, Tyra Banks, Nia Long, John Amos, Don Cheadle, Chris Rock, and many more.

In February 2022, the series received a fresh interpretation with a new cast and nods to its predecessor in Peacock’s “Bel-Air.” Jabari Banks, a newcomer, took on the role of the titular character, mirroring both the real-life and fictional Will by hailing from Philadelphia.

Describing the show’s approach, Banks said, “If you took all of the characters from the ’90s but you dove into all of their diaries and all of their journals and what they were feeling internally, that’s what our show is.” He teased that viewers could expect exciting callbacks to the original series, as well as plenty of Easter eggs.

“Bel-Air” successfully wrapped up its second season in April, with a third season renewal announced in March. However, the ongoing writers and actors strike has led to a delay in its release until 2024.

“Moved in 33 years ago today,” Will Smith wrote as the caption of a photo of him standing outside the iconic Los Angeles Banks family home.
