Watch Soleil Moon Frye navigate life as a divorced mom in first trailer for Punky Brewster revival
Punky Brewster is all grown up and she's ready to take back her punky power!
In the exclusive first trailer for Peacock's Punky Brewster revival series (premiering Feb. 25), Soleil Moon Frye returns to her titular role from the beloved '80s sitcom. Punky is now a divorced mother of three who still walks to the beat of her own drum — in different color Chucks, no less.
With her best friend Cherie (Cherie Johnson) by her side, there's no stopping Punky from rediscovering who or what she wants. And along the way, she'll help an orphan named Izzy (Quinn Copeland) with similar beginnings find her own place in the world.
"Newly single. Professional photographer. Used to be fun," Punky's eldest daughter Hannah (Lauren Lindsey Donzis) writes on mom's online dating profile in the trailer. "Used to be fun."
Adds momma Punky, "I'm still fun," before doing the classic Punky wiggle dance.
The trailer also gives insight into Punky's complicated relationship with ex-husband Travis (Freddie Prinze Jr.), who she accidentally kisses one morning and calls babe. "You still have a thing for him," Izzy teases Punky after that exchange.
