“Season two of Bel-Air picks up with Will at a crossroads in his life as a new figure comes into his life who challenges what he’s learned in Bel-Air and competes for control of his influence. He juggles this while navigating his home life with the Banks family and trying to rebuild the trust that was broken at the end of last season. We’ll see Will and Carlton’s brotherhood start to evolve as they grow closer, but still challenge each other about their differences. We’ll also see Hilary evolve as she becomes more of a boss in her influencer world and how that spills over into her relationship with Jazz, and also highlight the relatable struggles around Viv and Phil balancing marriage and family while trying to forge their own career paths and reconnect to the things that are important to them.”
It is an adaptation of the sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and based on Cooper’s short fan film of the same name. Ten episodes, each lasting 60 minutes, will make up the second season.
In order to keep his independence and his West Philly identity while still being open to new prospects in Bel-Air, Will is now having difficulty striking this balance.
