Punky Brewster Is All Grown Up (Ish) in the Delightful Teaser For Peacock's Sequel Series

Raising three kids alone is no joke, but with Punky Brewster on the job, it’s bound to be an adventure! The first teaser for the upcoming sequel series by NBC’s streaming service, Peacock, dropped on April 15 and, although it’s only a brief glimpse, we’re already hooked. Similar to other revival series like Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World and Netflix’s Fuller House, Punky Brewster follows an all-grown-up Punky as a single mother of three trying to get her life back on track when she meets a young girl (Quinn Copeland) who reminds her a lot of her younger self.

The trailer features Soleil Moon Frye reprising her original role as the titular Punky — still charming as ever — along with Cherie Johnson, who will return as Punky’s best friend, and Freddie Prinze Jr., who guest stars in the pilot as Punky’s ex-husband, Travis. Copeland (Waitress the Musical), Lauren Donzis (No Good Nick), Oliver De Los Santos (Occupation: Rainfall), and Noah Cottrell (Skyscraper) flesh out the rest of the show’s cast. There’s no set date for a premiere, but Peacock seems to be aiming for a late 2020 debut. Watch the trailer above!
