Fresh Prince reunion: Release date
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s 30th-anniversary cast reunion special was scheduled to premiere on Thursday, November 19th, 2020.
However, the special episode was released one day earlier at 5 PM Pacific Time on HBO Max on Wednesday, November 18th.

How to watch the Fresh Prince reunion…
- The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cast reunion will be available to stream on HBO Max from Thursday, November 19th.
Fans of the series in North America can purchase a subscription to HBO Max for just $14.99 a month. Although, the platform also offers a seven-day free trial.
Unfortunately, HBO Max is not yet available in the UK without the use of a VPN. However, there is hope that the Fresh Prince special will premiere on Sky Atlantic in a few weeks; similar to how shows such as Game of Thrones and Lovecraft Country aired.
A release date for the reunion outside the US has not been officially confirmed, but this article will be updated as soon as that information is revealed.
Who will appear in the Fresh Prince reunion?
According to sources, Will Smith will be hosting the cast reunion alongside Tatyana Ali (Ashley), Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton), Janet Hubert-Whitten (the first Aunt Viv), Daphne Maxwell Reid (the second Aunt Viv), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey the Butler) and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
The special will also pay tribute to the late James Avery (Uncle Phil), who passed away in 2013.
Will the Fresh Prince reunion be released on Netflix?
At the time of writing, no information has been released to suggest that The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s special cast reunion will be made available through Netflix.
However, the streaming platform does currently have all six seasons of the series available for you to watch. Hopefully, a deal can be made between HBO and Netflix to bring the special to the streaming platform in early 2021.
Will the Fresh Prince reunion be released on Amazon Prime?
At the time of writing, there is no information to suggest that The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s special cast reunion will be made available through Amazon Prime Video.
However, users can add a subscription to HBO through their Amazon Prime Video account with the recent news that Max is coming to Fire TV. It is worth remembering that these platforms often have a seven-day free trial option too.
