Remember Punky? And that dog, Comet? And those clothes? Ugh. Well it’s coming back. With a more mature look.
NBC has ordered a pilot of Punky Brewster starring the original Punky, Soleil Moon Frye! She’ll play Punky all grown up and likely spewing out lessons to others, as Punky is known to do.
“I am beyond thrilled and honored to be bringing Punky back! 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,” said Frye. “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!”
She actually just said “Punky Power”. She just said that. smh.
Who am I kidding. I’ll be checking it out.
