Bel-Air Plot and Cast
In the Bel-Air Season 1 finale, Will learned the truth about his father. He hadn’t left Will, as he had always been told, but had been incarcerated for robbery. Feeling betrayed, Will stormed out after an explosive argument with Aunt Viv and Uncle Phil. He thought about returning to Philly but seemed to reconsider after a talking-to from Jazz.
When asked for Season 2 details, showrunner T.J. Brady told TVLine that they will go to try and define themselves in Los Angeles outside of Bel-Air. He also added that they can look forward to him seeing what else that city has to offer in terms of making him feel like he belongs, places and people where he can thrive, and just figuring out a future for himself.
Brady continued that the incident with Lou coupled with Jazz’s words and Will’s journey is going to take him on that coming-of-age self-discovery that everyone can relate to.
The cast members expected to return includes Jabari Banks as Will Smith, Olly Sholotan as Carlton Banks, Adrian Holmes as Philip Banks, Cassandra Freeman as Vivian Banks and Coco Jones as Hilary Banks. We might get to see the return of Akira Akbar as Ashley Banks, April Parker Jones as Viola ‘Vy’ Smith, and honorary family member Jimmy Akingbola as Geoffrey Thompson. We can also expect Simone Joy Jones as Lisa Wilkes and Jordan L Jones as Jazz to return.
Bel-Air Season 2 Release Date
It was announced in September of 2020, that Peacock had picked up the show after a mock trailer for a dramatic retelling of the original series went viral online. Deadline reported at the time that the network had actually picked up Bel-Air for two seasons following a bidding war with Netflix.
The release date of Bel-Air Season 2 remains unknown. Since Season 1 premiered in 2022, we can expect the second season to premiere sometime in 2023.
