More than 20 years after their series finale, the cast of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunited.

Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks on the hit comedy show, posted a photo with his TV family on his Instagram account, which he wrote: “Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family.”

Ribeiro was joined by Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Vivian), Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Tatyana Ali (Ashley), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey) and, of course, Will Smith.

Sadly, James Avery who played Uncle Phil, passed away in December 2013 at the age of 68.

“Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete,” concluded Ribeiro’s photo caption.

He was definitely there in spirit.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ran for six seasons from 1990-1996 on NBC. Daphne Maxwell Reid took over the role of Aunt Vivian during the last three seasons of the show, replacing Janet Hubert-Whitten.

Maybe one day we will get to see an on-screen reunion? Here’s hoping!
