Bel-Air season 2: how to watch Fresh Prince drama reboot in the UK, Sky release date, cast - and trailer

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air gritty reboot returns for a second season on Peacock

The second season of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot has landed in the US - the series is a gritty dramatic take on the ‘90s Will Smith comedy series, starring Jabari Banks as Will - the character not the actor.

As Will makes the move from West Philadelphia to to the upper-class neighbourhood of Bel-Air, Los Angeles. Unlike the original sitcom, the drama series takes a more serious look at issues of racial tension, class, and culture shock.

Following the season one finale, which saw Will meet his biological father, Lou, and realised that his closest family had lied to him about Lou’s whereabouts for years. The dramatic episode saw Will fall out with his father and the rest of his family, storming out and planning to get on on his own.

The second season sees Will playing street-ball, hoping to catch the attention of a recruiter and go professional. He is at a crossroads in his life and trying to rebuild the relationship with his family that was damaged when their lies came to light in the last season.

Meanwhile, he and Carlton continue to grow closer, though they remain two very different people. This is everything you need to know about season two of  Bel-Air:
