Will Smith gave fans a glimpse of HBO Max’s upcoming The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special on Thursday, sharing two photos from the set in celebration of the show’s 30th anniversary.

“Today is exactly 30 YEARS since The @FreshPrince of Bel-Air debuted!” Smith, 51, wrote on his Instagram account. “So we’re doin' something for y’all… a for real Banks Family Reunion is comin' soon to @HBOmax!”

Smith posed with cast members for the one-time special Thursday, smiling widely with Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro. All were sitting in the living room of the Banks home, where most of the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” series took place between 1990 and 1996.

Smith also paid tribute to actor James Avery, who played Uncle Phil in the series. Avery died in 2013 at the age of 68, Variety reported.

“RIP James,” he wrote. “#FreshPrince30th.”

The reunion show is expected to air on HBO Max in late November, Entertainment Tonight reported. According to a news release, the reunion will be a “funny and heartfelt night full of music, dancing, and more special surprise guests.”

The news release also noted that all 148 episodes of the show will be available to stream on HBO Max.

In addition to the happy smiles, Smith also apparently mended fences with Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv during the first three years of the series, Entertainment Tonight reported.

The second photo from the set shows Smith sitting down with Hubert, who he had not spoken to in 27 years, People reported. Hubert, who was replaced by Maxwell Reid, had previously criticized Smith and the series.

This isn’t the first reunion for the cast. Smith hosted a virtual reunion in May, which included a tribute to Avery, Entertainment Tonight reported.
