A Punky Brewster Sequel Is Being Developed

Because Hollywood is out of ideas, another TV show from the ’80s is making a return. Deadline reports that Punky Brewster, a sequel to the popular 1984 sitcom is currently being developed. Soleil Moon Frye is set to reprise her role as the titular character.

The original series, which aired on NBC from 1984 through 1986 and then in syndication until 1988 was created by David W. Duclon. It centered on Punky (Frye), a bright young girl raised by a foster dad (George Gaynes). In the reboot, Punky is now a single mother of three trying to get her life back on track when she meets a young girl who reminds her a lot of her younger self.

The series will be written and executive produced by Steve and Jim Armogida (School of Rock, Grounded For Life). Frye and Duclon will also serve as executive producers along with Emmy-winning producer Jimmy Fox (The Arrangement).
