Another TV classic is getting a refresh! NBC's streaming service, Peacock, has officially given a series order for the sequel to '80s NBC sitcom Punky Brewster. Soleil Moon Frye will reprise her original role as the titular Punky along with Cherie Johnson, who will return as Punky's best friend.

According to Deadline, the series will be in the same vein as Disney Channel's Girl Meets World and Netflix's Fuller House, following 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."
