Yo, home to Bel-Air — again.

Will Smith may have said “smell ya later” to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” back in the ’90s, but DJ Jazzy Jeff told The Sun this week that there have been talks surrounding a possible reboot of the hit sitcom — which Jeff and Smith starred on from 1990 to 1996 on NBC.

“There have been talks with people about doing something. I think it would be cool if they did it and go down memory lane again,” Jazzy Jeff, whose real name is Jeffrey Allen Townes, 52, told The Sun.

“It’s hard for people to keep their attention span normally, but to be able to keep it for all these years and transcend generations, put their kids onto it, this is deep,” he continued.

Jeff will reunite with Smith on Aug. 27 for a performance at the Livewire Festival in Blackpool, England.

Some of the cast of “Fresh Prince” — Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), Tatyana Ali (Ashley), Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Daphne Reid (Vivien) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey the Butler) reunited back in March around the 20th anniversary of the show, leading to speculation that it would be coming back.

Noticeably absent was actor James Avery (Phil Banks), who died in 2013.

The DJ made no indication to The Sun that Smith, 48, would return for a reboot if it happened.

Will Smith shuts down rumors of a ‘Fresh Prince’ reboot

In fact, almost exactly a year ago, the “Men in Black” star shot down rumors that the show would ever be revived.

“I don’t think ever, like pretty close to when hell freezes over,” he said. “Like we’re going to leave that one alone.”

Reps for Smith and Townes did not immediately respond to a Daily News request for comment.
