The Banks Family Is All Grown Up in This Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion Photo

Prepare yourself, because the cast of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air recently reunited and it's nostalgia overload. Alfonso Ribeiro posted the fun shot on Instagram, which features original cast members Will Smith, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, and Daphne Reid (we'll go ahead and assume why the actress who played the first Aunt Viv, Janet Hubert, opted out of the afternoon). Although sadly no one did the Carlton dance, the Banks family and their trouble-making Philadelphia cousin looked like they had a great time together. "Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family," Alfonso, 45, captioned the photo. "Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete."

The cast and fans of the show alike suffered a tragic blow when actor James Avery, who played the strict (but lovable) Uncle Phil, passed away at the age of 68 following complications during open heart surgery in December 2013. Will mourned his former costar by saying "Every young man needs an Uncle Phil," while Alfonso tweeted that James had been like "a second father" to him. Despite the noticeable absence, their reunion comes hot on the heels of the show's 20th anniversary last year. It's heartwarming to see that no matter how many years have past, the cast's friendship has endured.
