It’s time to live by your own rules. Well, almost. Peacock’s critically acclaimed drama series, Bel-Air, returns for a highly anticipated Season 2 on Feb 23, and to tide you over, today we’ve unveiled a knockout trailer filled with enticing moments from the season ahead.  

Speaking of enticing moments, if you notice someone around the 1:13 mark that looks a lot like Tatyana Ali, who played Ashley Banks in the original The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, you are not seeing things. Ali will make a recurring guest star appearance as Mrs. Hughes, the English Literature teacher at Bel-Air middle school.  

Season 2 will reunite its dynamic ensemble cast including Jabari Banks (Will), Adrian Holmes (Philip Banks), Cassandra Freeman (Vivian Banks), Olly Sholotan (Carlton Banks), Coco Jones (Hilary Banks), Akira Akbar (Ashley Banks), Jimmy Akingbola (Geoffrey), Jordan L. Jones (Jazz), and Simone Joy Jones (Lisa).  

Fans can also expect Season 2 to pick up with Will at a crossroads as new family dynamics, love interests, and athletic ambitions enter the equation.  

“In Season 2, the show will continue to find ways to push the envelope and feel refreshing and unique while also honoring the heart of the legacy series,” Showrunner Carla Banks Waddles told us. “Last season was very much about the introduction to the Banks family world, and this season we get to go deeper with some of the themes we touched on. What it truly means to be a family even when it’s challenging. How do you rebuild trust within a family?  How do you find your own way, your individualism within a family?”  

Watch the trailer below.
