Peacock’s “Bel Air” Season 2 is currently airing some of it’s most interesting episodes ever and we’re glued to the TV every Thursday!
One of the main storylines this season is Will and Carlton both finally getting along but things doesn’t always go the way they want them to. There’s still fights between the two but even with the fights, you can tell they formed a brotherhood.
Jabari Banks recently talked about the bromance with Collider.
“I love the camaraderie between Will and Carlton. That’s something that is a part of the original, and it’s my favorite. So, to see that brotherhood come together, because they’re two vastly different people from two different upbringings and two different walks of life, and they can come together and love each other for who they are, is such a beautiful thing to see between two young Black men on screen. At the end of the day, that’s his cousin. That’s his family. He has to love him, regardless.
Will hopes to teach Carlton, and I feel Carlton learns a bit. Carlton is a stubborn dude. Will tries to teach Carlton how to maneuver a little bit differently in Black spaces. Carlton hasn’t had the opportunity to do that as much, growing up. You see Will and Carlton getting outside of Bel-Air. Carlton also shows up as his authentic self, and it works for him, which I think is beautiful. What does Carlton teach Will? Carlton ain’t gonna teach Will nuthin’. No. Carlton teachers will how to show up authentically as himself. The cross between South L.A. and Bel-Air, and us being in those two spaces together, they can help each other out.”

Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Peacock’s successful one-hour drama series Bel-Air imagines the beloved sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air through a new, dramatic take on Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. As these two worlds collide, Will reckons with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions, and biases of a world far different from the only one he’s ever known.
Season two of Bel-Air picks up with Will at a crossroads as a new figure comes into his life who challenges what he’s learned in Bel-Air and competes for control of his influence. He juggles this while navigating his home life with the Banks family and trying to rebuild the trust that was broken at the end of last season. We’ll see Will and Carlton’s brotherhood start to evolve as they grow closer, but still challenge each other about their differences. We’ll also see Hilary evolve as she becomes more of a boss in her influencer world and how that spills over into her relationship with Jazz, and also highlight the relatable struggles around Viv and Phil balancing marriage and family while trying to forge their own career paths and reconnect to the things that are important to them.
Inspired by Morgan Cooper’s viral trailer that reimagined the iconic, culture-defining ’90s sitcom, Bel-Air takes a fresh and raw approach to this world of swagger, style, and aspiration, while exploring Will’s complex journey through a current lens. The series features an ensemble cast that introduces new sensation Jabari Banks as Will and a creative team that includes showrunner, executive producer and writer Carla Banks Waddles and Cooper, who serves as executive producer.
