In a surprising turn of events, Janet Hubert- the actress who plays the original ‘Aunt Vivian’ in ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ is seemingly joining the crew for the HBO-Max special.

This comes as a surprise to fans and viewers alike since, in previous years before, Janet has been very outspoken about her alleged mistreatment during her time with the show. 

All the same, fans are pleased to see Will Smith and Janet Hubert in a photo posted on Instagram, in what seems to be a very pleasant conversation.

The caption to the post said: “Today is exactly 30 YEARS since The @FreshPrince of Bel-Air debuted! So we’re doin’ something for y’all… a for real Banks Family Reunion is comin’ soon to @HBOmax! RIP James. #FreshPrince30th.”

The reunion special will premiere on HBO-Max at Thanksgiving.
