Jada Pinkett Smith will get her family together for a Red Table Talk involving the Oscar slap — but it sounds like we'll have to wait for it.

In the first episode of her Facebook Watch show's new season, Pinkett Smith addressed the issue in a written note ahead of her chat with Janelle Monáe.

In the note, Pinkett Smith says her family is "healing" and that they'll have a conversation around the table in due time.

"Considering all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has been focusing on deep healing," she wrote in the note. "Some of the discoveries around our healing will be shared at the table when the time calls."

It ended with a reminder for people to tune into the show for "powerful, inspiring and healing testimonies like that of our incredibly impressive first guests."

Besides a post on her Instagram and this note to viewers of her talk show, Pinkett Smith has not publicly spoken about what happened at the Oscars last month.

Pinkett Smith had a front-row seat for the incident, which played out during the live Oscars telecast. Presenter Chris Rock made a joke about her bald head, and that prompted her husband Will Smith to march up on stage and slap the comedian.

"Keep my wife's name out your f*cking mouth!" Smith shouted at Rock afterward.

Smith later apologized and resigned from the Academy. He was then banned from the Oscars for a decade.

It's unclear when Pinkett Smith will get the rest of the family together around the red table, but we do hope it'll be this season.
