We'll probably never get a "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" revival, but here's the next best thing.

Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks on the '90s sitcom, shared an Instagram photo with his old cast mates. "Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family," Ribeiro, 45, wrote. Everyone was there, from the French Prince himself, Will Smith, to Tatyana Ali (Ashley), Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Vivian), and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey the butler).

Only missing were Ross Bagley (Nicky), the first Aunt Vi (Janet Hubert), and of course Uncle Phil (James Avery), who passed away in 2013.

Ribeiro added, "Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete."

Recently Ribeiro told E! News that a real reunion just isn't possible without Avery. "Since James Avery passed, the chances of a Fresh Prince coming back together will not happen. I don't think we feel as a cast that we would do even our fans justice. We all felt like he was the centerpiece or the nucleus of that show. Without him, it just doesn't work. So even if the whole cast comes to support me on the show, we're not looking for that to happen. And that's OK."

"I don't think ever, like pretty close to when hell freezes over," Smith told E! last year about a potential reunion. "Like we're going to leave that one alone."

Well, we'll always have the reruns. And this photo.
