Peacock gives Punky Brewster sequel a series order

  • Soleil Moon Frye will officially reprise her 1984-1988 childhood sitcom role in the Punky Brewster revival series. She'll be joined by Cherie Johnson, returning as Punky's best friend, and Freddie Prinze Jr., who guest-stars in the pilot as Punky's ex-husband. Peacock has given the sequel series a 10-episode order. “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!”
