When Peacock’s Bel-Air was first coming together, Will Smith was a big part of it. He was in the news because he was the actor who played Fresh Prince. But he also worked on the show as an executive producer. He gave advice to the young cast and even attended the premiere with his wife and son. But since Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars, that’s all changed.
People who have a Peacock subscription will be able to see Season 2 of Bel-Air in 2023. The cast came together before filming to talk about the show and to try and win some Emmy Awards.
As you can see in the photo below, the only person on that stage who looks like Will Smith is Jabari Banks. He plays the famous Philly basketball player who gets into some trouble and is shipped off to his Uncle’s house in Bel-Air. Banks and Smith had previously taken photos together ahead of the show’s debut.
If you land an Emmy nod, it would be a big deal. usually, the show’s executive producer would want to be there. But he wasn’t.
Will Smith has not been seen out and about a lot since the slap incident that happened during this year’s Oscars ceremony. He was seen in India over a month ago at this point. With projects either being halted or delayed, it’s been a slow period for the actor and producer.
After the incident happened, it was revealed that a couple of Will Smith’s projects had been put on pause. This included his upcoming Netflix movie Fast & Loose (which had also recently lost Director David Leitch) and the highly anticipated Bad Boys 4. It was clarified later that the fourth Bad Boys flick is still in development at Sony, but earlier this month, another Smith project Emancipation was pushed from 2022 to 2023.
The future is still unclear for the former Fresh Prince actor. It’s not clear what will happen next. We don’t know what will happen with the Oscars, but we do know there are updates for Season 2 of Bel-Air.
