It’s time for another reboot!

Another classic is getting the sequel treatment. Punky Brewster is the latest to make a comeback via Universal Content Productions.

The original, which ran for our seasons followed Punky, a bright young girl raised by a foster dad. The titular title was played by Soleil Moon Frye. Fyre is set to reprise the role that launched her into stardom. The sequel will follow Punky (Frye) who’s now a single mother of three trying to get her life back on track when she meets a young girl who reminds her a lot of her younger self.

The follow-up series is penned and executive produced by Steve and Jim Armogida (School of Rock, Grounded for Life). Frye will also executive produce alongside original series creator David W. Duclon. 

Punky Brewster joins other 1980s and 1990s sitcoms that made their return to the big screen including Boy Meets World, Full House, Will & Grace, and Roseanne.
