Even Punky Power couldn’t save Punky Brewster

When NBC Universal announced that they were launching the streaming network Peacock, they revealed that they were doing a revival of Punky Brewster. Kids of the ’80s were like super excited to have her back.

But unfortunately, I found it to be a letdown. It felt like a completely different show that was not loyal to the original.

I guess I am not alone because Variety is reporting that Peacock cancelled the sitcom after 10 episodes.

Do you find this news grossaroo, or do you think they made the right choice?

On February 25th, Punky Brewster is all grown up and back with new episodes on Peacock TV. We know that her character is divorced from Freddie Prinze, Jr., but what about her BFF?

Today, we found out about her best friend’s love life. Cherie Johnson, who plays Cherie, will be dating someone special. “I am absolutely thrilled (SO excited) you accepted the invitation to be my girlfriend on the new Punky Brewster @jasikaistrycurious you are brilliant, beautiful and so kind,” Johnson wrote. “We are so lucky to have you join this melting pot Punky fam as ‘Cherie’s’ girlfriend, Lauren!” Jasika Nicole is best known for playing Astrid Farnsworth on Fringe.

This announcement makes me want to watch the sequel even more. I am happy they did make the show super sweet and innocent as its competitor would do.

When Peacock announced what shows they are rebooting at their launch party, I was most excited for Punky Brewster. Well, after months and months of waiting, the revival, that stars the show’s original actresses Soleil Moon Frye and Cherie Johnson, finally has a premiere date.

That date is February 25th. Valentine’s Day is coming a little late this year. Then again, what isn’t?

Until the sitcom starts streaming, I am just going to listen to the happy theme song over and over again because all of this makes me happy. Things we need more of in 2021!

As happy as I am, there is one thing missing from this photo. That thing is a dog. Punky needs a dog!

Soleil Moon Frye just wrapped the first season of the Punky Brewster revival for Peacock, and that is not the only thing she wrapped in 2020.

The actress and her husband, Jason Goldberg, should have been celebrating their 22nd and 2 month wedding anniversary on Christmas. Instead, they were figuring out how to announce that they separated earlier this year.

Frye and the producer “quietly separated this year,” her rep told People. “Their priority will continue to be their four beautiful children as they move forward with love and compassion.”

Those four children are Poet Sienna Rose, 15, and Jagger Joseph Blue, 12, and sons Lyric Sonny Roads, 6, and Story, 4.

Along with being part of Punky Brewster’s revival, she will also be heard in the Proud Family reboot on Disney+ next year.

For months there have been rumors that The Proud Family is coming back, and Disney+ finally made it official today! It has been 18 years since the show premiered, so it makes sense that they would make Penny a teenager for The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder.

Kyla Pratt will once again voice Penny, and she is not the only one who is back from the original run. Tommy Davidson as Oscar Proud, Paula Jai Parker as Trudy Proud, Jo Marie Payton as Suga Mama, Karen Malina White as Dijonay Jones, Soleil Moon Frye as Zoey Howzer, Alisa Reyes as LaCienega Boulevardez, and Cedric the Entertainer as Uncle Bobby Proud are also once again joining in on the fun.

The keep the animated show feeling like it did, Academy Award-winning creator/executive producer Bruce W. Smith and executive producer Ralph Farquhar are back to keep the Prouds in line. At least, they will try to do so.

We don’t know when the revival will begin to stream. Therefore, in the meantime, you can watch the OG run on Disney+ anytime you want. It will get you even more excited for the new episodes.

One of the most excited people for the reboot is Alisa Reyes, and she told me how much she is looking forward to returning as LaCienga Boulevardez. She said, “I am just so grateful and blessed to have a full-circle moment it started with All That on Nickelodeon and now again with The Proud Family. I am humbled and so thankful for this opportunity to continue doing what I love and that fills my soul with joy!” It fills our souls with joy to see our childhood favorites coming back to life in our adulthood. Who says we have to grow up?
