Peacock’s “Bel Air” Star Marlon Wayans Says Will Smith Might Replace Him

Bel air season 2

Season 2 Of Peacock’s newest hit series “Bel-Air” is currently filming and we’re very interested in knowing what guest stars will return for the second season!

We know for sure that Model & Actress Karrueche will return for Season 2 but one name that’s up in the air is Actor Marlon Wayans.

Marlon was recently asked about the role and the possibility of returning and he shared:

“I don’t know. My new comedy special is about the Will & Chris Oscar incident. I don’t know how Will is going to take that. He’s probably going to replace me in Bel-Air Season 2 like they replaced the original Aunt Viv.”

He went on and joked:

“Don’t be surprised if you see Terrance Howard playing Lou. You’ll be like, ‘Hey what happened to Marlon? Will saw that special and canceled his a**.’

Ouch! We know he’s joking but there’s truth behind every joke. Maybe Marlon is a little afraid that Will Smith is going to replace him in the series because of the special.

Bel-Air originated from a video by Morgan Cooper that went viral on YouTube and caught the attention of Smith. The Hollywood star put his support behind the young filmmaker and now Cooper is serving as director, executive producer and co-writer (along with T.J. Brady and Rashee Newson) on the series; Smith is also executive producing the series.


“Set in modern-day America, Bel-Air is a serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the 90’s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. With a reimagined vision, Bel-Air will dive 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.”
