Yesterday (Sept. 10), Will Smith shocked fans with the confirmation of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” reunion special.

“We’re doin’ something for y’all… a for real Banks Family Reunion is comin’ soon...” Smith captioned an Instagram post which featured photos of him and cast members Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid and DJ Jazzy Jeff and honored the late James Avery.

What fans were most surprised to find out was that Janet Hubert, the original Aunt Viv, would also make an appearance on the special despite years of tension between her and Smith.

Per usual, Black Twitter came through with a slew of reactions, most of which provided a similar sentiment: 2020 is unpredictable!

“Janet Hubert and Will Smith are sitting across from each other and smiling. Chile...2020’s waters have been troubled,” one tweet read. “Ask for rain in the time of rain. Ask for favor while favor is falling.”

Another user tweeted, “Will Smith and Janet Hubert in the same room...and she’s not slapping the taste out of his mouth. 2020 has truly been a year of shit I would’ve never seen coming.”

Jounalist Sylvia Obell questioned whether the Smith and Hubert reunion was part of the Bible.

“I’m pretty sure Will Smith and Janet Hubert making up was one of the signs in the book of Revelations,” she penned in her tweet.

Another user likened the meetup to the Brandy and Monica Verzuz that many also doubted would come to fruition.

“First we get Brandy verzuz Monica and now Will Smith sitting down with the original Aunt Viv from the Fresh Prince, Janet Hubert??” she wrote. “I never thought I’d see the day cuz Janet talked mad shit for years about the Smiths chile...that’s growth.”
