The days of content being exclusive to one channel/network are long gone, now we're in an era of six million channels. Perfectly possible for stuff to appear on multiple outlets.

Plus Bel-Air is in syndication, so it's probably relatively cheap to buy for iPlayer, and what with it being from the 1990s, and all that retro stuff is in at the moment...

Elsewhere someone said Sky Comedy had picked up the Fresh Prince too. Looks like you can't avoid it...

Maybe Will Smith should consider a revival seeing as so many other 90s shows have done it and it still seems to be everywhere Razz The death of James Avery will probably put paid to that though.

They recently did a Fresh Prince reunion show for HBO Max so I would guess that'll air on either BBC Two or Sky Comedy.

I believe most original HBO Max content is automatically destined for a Sky channel due to the content deal they have.

I hope it finds its way to this country. I managed to watch it "somehow" and thought it was brilliant. A lovely tribute to James Avery and a very moving reunion with a somewhat controversial cast member.

I'm more surprised that they picked up Fresh Prince when it's already on Netflix, it seems that, unless it's an original BBC show, they don't tend to do that.
Although they are getting quite a few US shows on there, like Battlestar Galactica, which I only found out they were showing on BBC2 after I'd watched the pilot on iPlayer.

Fresh Prince is leaving Netflix on the 31st.

There is a revival coming of Fresh Prince. It’s going to be more of a drama instead of a comedy.

It may be on BBC2, but may not be.

To be fair the original had quite a few ‘serious’ moments despite primarily being a sitcom

What next, a revival of Robot Wars? Oh wait...

The so-called "very special episode".

That happened last time but fans protested and low and behold it was back a few months later.

Not as many as Diffr'nt Strokes or Blossom though.
