Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Alfonso Ribeiro and other cast members are also all set to return. The special is believed to be airing sometime around Thanksgiving.

This is going to be so awesome to watch. I think a lot of people, especially people who might be under 20, don’t understand how big “Fresh Prince” was when it aired.

We’re talking about one of the funniest shows of the past 40 years. It was wholesome, hilarious and the entire family could watch Carlton and Will bumble and stumble through life.

It also shot Will Smith into superstardom status, and he’s ever looked back since. Without “Fresh Prince,” he never becomes the star we know him as today.

Now, he’s returning to TV with a bunch of the cast for a special three decades after the show first aired. It’s pretty damn cool.

Make sure to keep checking back for more updates as we have them. This one sounds like it’s going to be awesome.
