Peacock’s “Bel-Air” Changes Show-Runner Again Ahead Of Season 2 Premiere

Bel air season 2

Peacock’s newest hit reboot “Bel-Air” is now facing more changes and it’s happening while Season 2 is in the middle filming!

Peacock’s breakout hit Bel-Air is making a change at the helm for Season 2, which is currently in production. Carla Banks Waddles has been promoted to showrunner. She takes over for TJ Brady and Rasheed Newson who have stepped down from the role over creative differences. The duo remain executive producers on the series, from Westbrrok Studios and Universal Television. The series is taking a brief hiatus as the showrunner transition is taking place. Per Deadline

This is the 3rd show runner since the show was picked up and we wonder why there’s so many changes being done and hope this doesn’t hurt the show in the long run when it comes to a potential Season 3.

Plot: Set in modern-day America, Bel-Air follows Will’s (Jabari Banks) complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. It dives deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show.

Banks Waddles, Morgan Cooper, Malcolm Spellman, Will Smith, Terence Carter, James Lassiter, Miguel Melendez,  Benny Medina, Quincy Jones, Andy & Susan Borowitz, Brady & Newson serve as executive producers, along with Anthony Sparks, who joined for Season 2.
