Is a "Fresh Prince" Reunion in the Works?

It’s a time for reunions! First “Suburgatory” confirmed a “Clueless” reunion with Jeremy Sisto and Alicia Silverstone, and now the majority of the Banks family from “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” was spotted together.

Will Smith, Tatyana Ali, Alfonso Riberior, Karyn Parsons and James Avery took a moment at a recent charity event to snap a photo for Will Smith’s Facebook account. The group gathered for a Sweet Blackberry event. Parsons is one of the directors of the non-profit organizations. Under the photo Will smith wrote, "Got the Holiday season started right with a Fresh Prince of Bel Air reunion...there's nothin' like spending Holidays with fam!"

Any child of the 90s can only hope it’s just the first of many sitings. It’s time for a reunion, right? The show has been off the air for 15 years after six seasons. Last we knew the Banks were leaving their Bel Air home for a new life. What has happened since then?

The bad news is it simply was a family getting together for a common cause. These actors grew up together, bonding at a prime age in their life. Acting isn’t like most jobs, so when actors move on to a new project it doesn’t mean that they won’t speak again.  This is especially true when the actors spend years working together. In a way it’s more refreshing than anything to see that it was more than just acting on screen. The chemistry between the Banks’ made the show real and relatable, and that’s because they truly are like a second family to one another.

One can only wonder if Jaz appeared and was thrown out on the streets by Uncle Phil before the night was over.
