Punky Power forever!
The iconic pigtailed moppet is heading back to television after NBC Universal’s streaming service Peacock has greenlit a Punky Brewster sequel.
Soleil Moon Frye returns to star as the titular character.
The sequel series will follow a now all grown Punky as a single mother of three children trying to get her life back on track. She’ll meet a young foster girl named Izzy (Quinn Copeland), who reminds Punky of her younger self.
Also starring is Freddie Prinze Jr. as Travis Punky’s ex-husband as well as Lauren Donzis, Oliver De Los Santos, and Noah Cottrell.
“I am beyond thrilled and honored to be bringing Punky back!” Frye said in a statement. “I’m grateful to our NBCUniversal Content Studios and Peacock family and to our incredible team of creators, writers, producers, cast, and crew that have put their hearts into this journey every step of the way. It is with great love for the amazing people who were such a pivotal part of creating the Punky magic that I will do my very best to honor their memory as we once again share Punky with the people that love her and a new generation discovering her for the first time. To our incredible fans who have stood by us, thank you for believing in me and I will do my best to make you proud. I love you. Punky Power forever!”
