Punky Power is back! NBC’s Peacock has released the official trailer for its reboot of the iconic 80s sitcom, “Punky Brewster.

Soleil Moon Frye will reprise her role as Punky, who 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 care system.

Izzy reminds Punky, who was raised by a foster dad, of her younger self. 

As if…a “Punky Brewster” reboot isn’t the epitome of awesome sauce, I squealed like a second-grader when I learned Cherie Johnson would be returning to reprise her role as Punky’s bestie.
