June 6, 2019

Punky Brewster is back!

The original series ran on NBC in the ‘80s, starring Soleil Moon Frye in the title role, followed a young girl being raised by a foster parent.  The TV sequel will once again star Frye as Punky, but will now follow her adventures as a single mother of three, meeting a young girl who reminds her of her younger self.


Punky Brewster ran for four seasons on NBC in the ‘80s, and earned three Emmy nominations, including a pair for outstanding children's program.  No network has yet to be attached to the sequel.
