Saweetie did admit that her nerves got the best of her at times while filming,

“The first time on set, it was just a little nerve-racking because I [wanted] it to be perfect for them. But I found when I was just in my vibe, in my moment with Yara [Shahidi], that’s when the best scenes would come.” According to Revolt, per complex

What To Expect For The New Season

Three new recurring faces will make their debut for the February premiere including Jazlyn Martin (“All American: Homecoming”), Riele Downs (“Henry Danger”) and Brooklyn McLinn (“Cloak & Dagger”).

Reboots And Their Influence

The hour-long show from the NBC based network expands the story a Black family dealing with class, race and other areas from an angle of privilege. Morgan Cooper, who serves as the show’s co-writer and co-executive producer said,

“There were really iconic scenes that are unforgettable, that strayed away from sitcom conventions, and just went purely into dramatic acting. That being said, scenes that made us question the society we live in weren’t at the forefront of the Fresh Prince. It was more about the laughs that an odd family dynamic could offer.” Morgan cooper, per BBC
