NETFLIX HAS announced that classic ’90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air will be added to its library on New Year’s Eve.
The streaming giant posted to its UK & Ireland Twitter account a teasing, “Now this is a story all about how”, before revealing: “Pull up to the house about 7 or 8. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, coming December 31st”.
Fresh Prince ran for six seasons between 1990-1996; a vehicle for Will Smith’s skyrocketing rap career, he essentially played himself as a street-smart teenager from West Philadelphia (born and raised).
In its first season, the show drew in an audience of 13.1 million.
The iconic theme song was written and performed by Will under his rap stage name, The Fresh Prince. He also executively produced season 6 of the hit show.
All six seasons of the show will be streaming on the platform, which you can expect to arrive on December 31.
