Inspired by Morgan Cooper’s viral trailer reimagining The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the Peacock series is set in modern-day Los Angeles.

The drama offers a fresh take on Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air.

According to Morgan Cooper, who serves as executive producer and director on Bel-Air, the new season will explore new changes in Will’s life.

“In season 3, Will’s ready to level up his way, even if it means going against the grain of what’s expected,” Cooper said in a statement. “His potential is limitless, but he still has a lot to learn. As Will expands his horizons, we see the Banks family navigating new, complex relationship dynamics. It’s definitely a season of change for everyone, and we can’t wait to share this next chapter of Bel-Air.”

The season will also take on several social issues.

“This season we’ll have a lot of great discussion on the gentrification happening in South LA and how so many people are capitalizing on the economy at the cost of the community. And this convo will become a backdrop through the season,” added showrunner, executive producer and writer Carla Banks Waddles.

The series is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, and Westbrook Studios, a division of Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s media company Westbrook Inc.

Executive producers include Will Smith, Terence Carter, James Lassiter, Miguel Melendez, Benny Medina, Quincy Jones, Andy and Susan?Borowitz, Janeika James, Jasheika James, and Andy Reaser.

Bel-Air season 3 premieres Aug. 15 on Peacock.
