Jabari Banks has quickly become one of the most promising young stars in Hollywood. Despite apprehension from some, Banks was able to lead the The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air re-imagination, Bel-Air, alongside Coco Jones and Olly Sholotan on Peacock. Not only did his performance win over fans, but it also garnered the support the show’s original star, Will Smith. Now, Banks will have to pull off the difficult task of expanding the fan base he has garnered with a successful season two of Bel-Air. During a recent interview at the 2022 BET Awards, Banks offered an update on the show’s next chapter.
“Is there another Fresh Prince season coming?” Mal of New Rory & Mal asked.
“Yeah! Yeah, we’ve got season two coming out. We start filming in September. It should be out next year,” Banks answered.
In addition to filming a new season of Bel-Air, Banks has also ventured out in to other spaces. The star actor is set to appear in BET’s upcoming docuseries, The Mandela Project. The five-part digital series will explore different facets of Nelson Mandel’s legacy. Set to arrive on BET’s YouTube channel on July 18, the series will star Banks as well as Marsai Martin, Jeremy Lynch and several others.
