Bel-Air is an American drama television series created by Morgan Cooper, Malcolm Spellman, TJ Brady, and Rasheed Newson.
It is a reimagining of the sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and is based on Cooper’s short fan film of the same name.
It stars Jabari Banks, Adrian Holmes, Cassandra Freeman, Olly Sholotan, Coco Jones, Akira Akbar, Jimmy Akingbola, Jordan L. Jones, and Simone Joy Jones. The series premiered on Peacock on February 13, 2022.
The second season will be released on February 23, 2023.
Bel-Air Season 2: The Plot
Only a few details about the upcoming season’s plot have been revealed. However, based on what is known, a few hypotheses can be formed. Coco Jones, the personality behind Hillary, spoke with Distractify and dropped a few hints.
Hillary and Jazz may be in for a rough patch. “I will say that someone from Hilary’s past comes into play,” Jones says, “and it kind of throws everything off.” That’s not good news for fans of the unlikely but adorable couple.
But, despite warning signs of trouble ahead, the couple will not perish. Additional comments from the actress indicate that tension will be a major factor in season 2. Jones also predicted that there would be some family strife.
“There will also be more push and pull between Hilary and Viv,” Jones says. But, given the charged situation and dramatic dynamics, this is not surprising.
Bel-air Season 2: the Cast & Crew
In terms of casting, the entire cast from season one is said to be returning. Fans can expect to see Jabari Banks (Will Smith), Adrian Holmes (Phillip Banks), Akira Akbar (Ashley Banks), Olly Sholotan (Carlton Banks), Cassandra Freeman (Vivian Banks), Coco Jones (Hilary Banks), Jordan L. Jones (Jazz).
And the answer is yes for those wondering if Geoffrey’s character (Jimmy Akingbola) would return after his expulsion from the family in season one. Marlon Wayans is also expected to return as an extra to play Will’s estranged biological father, Lou.
The upcoming season will feature one significant change. Those who keep up with production news are aware that Bel-Air will have a new showrunner. T.J. Brady and Rasheed Newson directed Season One.
And the duo was scheduled to return for season two. However, in October, there was a shift. The two took a step back from their positions. Their departure was reportedly due to differences in artistic vision.
Nonetheless, the series is in capable hands. Carla Banks-Waddles is said to be the new showrunner for the upcoming season. Banks-Waddles also has experience from the shows Good Girls, The Soul Man, and Half & Half.
Furthermore, Anthony Sparks is expected to join the team of executive producers. Finally, the show will continue to benefit from Will Smith’s direction, as he will continue to serve as executive producer.
The official trailer has been released, providing just enough of a sneak peek to whet fans’ appetites.
So, fans, mark your calendars for February 13th, one day before Valentine’s Day, when Bel-Air will return to its Peacock Avenue home.
