Will Smith To Reboot “Fresh Prince” Because Why Not?

Following on the heels of “Boy Meets World,” “The X-Files,” “Twin Peaks” and “Full House,” the latest ’90s show set for a reboot is “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

According to a report from TVLine.com, Will Smith is set to produce the new series, which he says will have a similar “fish out of water” theme, but a different plot line. Somehow.

The actual plot line hasn’t been decided on, actually, but I am guessing it will be something like “Carlton and his wife adopt Will’s kid for some reason and hijinks ensue,” given that Smith himself will only be producing and not acting in the show. I can’t think of anything else it would be off the top of my head, and also cannot imagine a “Fresh Prince” universe existing without the Carlton dance, so that’s gotta be what it is.

Personally, I am more interested in contemplating¬†shows you couldn’t possibly reboot. Like, “Bosom Buddies” would make literally no sense now. Or like, “Three’s Company” because no one would really care if a straight dude was living with some ladies.
