‘Punky Brewster’ Revival Sets Premiere Date, Peacock Reveals First Look
Every time I turn around…her spirit’s lifting me right off the ground! If you are familiar with the iconic and colorful ’80s TV series Punky Brewster, you might recognize those words from the theme song. We don’t know if the theme song will be the same, but what we do know is that Peacock’s revival of the series is set to drop all 10 episodes of the new Punky Brewster on February 25. In addition, the streamer released the first look of the cast which you can look at above.
In this continuation of the iconic 80s sitcom about a bright young girl raised by a foster dad, Punky is now a single mother of three trying to get her life back on track when she meets Izzy, a young girl in the foster system who reminds Punky a lot of her younger self.
Soleil Moon Frye and Cherie Johnson return as Punky and Cherie respectively while Freddie Prinze Jr. will star as Travis, Punky’s ex-husband. The cast also features Quinn Copeland as Izzy, Noah Cottrell as Diego, Oliver De Los Santos as Daniel, and Lauren Lindsey Donzis as Hannah.
