Folks have taken to their Twitter timelines to discuss the “Bel-Air” Season 2 finale.
The emotional finale finds the Banks household in shambles.
There’s tension between Aunt Viv and Uncle Phil regarding her dreams and aspirations.
Meanwhile, Erika Baker is putting a full-court press on Uncle Phil in and out of the office.
Will goes through it after learning the truth about Doc, but later devises a plan to save his teammates – past and present.
Jazz makes a last-minute attempt to win Hillary back, but she’s reluctant to get hurt again.
But, the biggest moment of the “Bel-Air” Season 2 finale was when Carlton came clean about his cocaine addiction.
Olly Sholotan, who portrays the character on the show, took to social media to write:
We made it to the end of another season. Episode 10 was a gift: an incredible emotional challenge but also one of my favorite episodes to film.
Getting to play this version of Carlton is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It’s made me more caring, compassionate, and understanding person; words can’t describe what it means to me.
Thanks for going on the journey with our lil homie Carlton, I can’t wait to piss y’all off some more next season
If you resonate with any of his struggles, I just want to take a second to let you know that you’re loved and help is always available: just a phone call away.

Set in modern-day America, “Bel-Air“ is a serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the 90’s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air.
With a reimagined vision, the series dives deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions, and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show.
The series is an adaptation of Morgan Cooper’s viral fan film.
Following its launch on Peacock last year as the streamer’s most-watched original premiere, “Bel-Air” is once again breaking records on the platform as Peacock’s most-watched original sophomore series to date.
The series also stars Adrian Holmes as “Phillip Banks,” Cassandra Freeman as “Vivian Banks,” Olly Sholotan as “Carlton Banks,” Coco Jones as “Hilary Banks,” Akira Akbar as “Ashley Banks,” Jimmy Akingbola as “Geoffrey,” Jordan L. Jones as “Jazz,” and Simone Joy Jones as “Lisa.”
“Bel-Air” has already received a Season 3 renewal at Peacock so I can’t wait to see what’s to come.
