The first episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air aired on September 10, 1990.
The sitcom ended on May 20, 1996, after six seasons.
Will Smith played Will, a native of West Philadelphia who was sent to live with his wealthy family in Bel-Air, a posh California neighborhood.
The show followed the antics of a teen Will as he learns to survive in a new environment, and it frequently featured heavy themes intertwined within the comedy – Fresh Prince tackled gang violence, drug use, and racism.
A reunion special featuring the surviving cast members aired on HBO Max in November of 2020.
After passing away in 2013, James Avery, who played the original Uncle Phil, was honored during the special.
