Who’s ready for more Bel-Air? I sure am! Season 2 of the drama has premiered on Peacock and we’re so excited to see what’s next for Will and the Banks family.
The show sees the return of Jabari Banks as Will Smith, Adrian Holmes as Uncle Phil, Cassandra Freeman as Aunt Vivian, Olly Sholotan as Carlton, Coco Jones as Hilary, and Akira Akbar as Ashley. And speaking of Ashley, the actress who played her in the original ’90s sitcom, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is guest starring in the reimagined series. Tatyana Ali will play Mrs. Hughes, Ashley’s teacher who will help give her some mentoring.
So how many episodes are in this season? We’ve got the answer for you below!
How many episodes are in Bel-Air season 2?
If you remember, the show’s first season had 10 episodes. For season 2, Peacock also ordered the same amount. So Bel-Air season 2 will have a total of 10 episodes.
The release schedule might be a bit confusing to you because it’s not the same as season 1. The show debuted the first time with the first three episodes on premiere day, then one new installment was released weekly.
This time around for the second season, only one episode streamed for the season 2 debut. Going forward, one new installment will be released weekly on Thursdays until the finale on April 27, 2023. We provided a full breakdown so you can mark your calendars here.
The next chapter in the story picks up two weeks after the fallout between Will and the Banks family as he learned the truth about his father, Lou. We see a new person enter our central character’s life, looking to compete for “control of his influence,” per the synopsis. But throughout all of this, Will is going to try and reconnect with his family, and we’re going to see his and and Carlton’s relationship continue to grow.
In terms of the Banks family, Hilary is going to be better at taking charge and being the boss as an influencer, while Viv and Phil have to figure out how to balance marriage and family as both have their own important career paths.
Bel-Air season 2 streams new episodes Thursdays on Peacock.
