Punky Brewster

Soleil Moon Frye as Penelope 'Punky' Brewster.

(KCTV) -- Ready to fall in love with "Punky Brewster" all over again?

Fans of the 1980 sitcom can do so -- doubly -- when the series gets a reboot and refurb.

The original star of the series Solei Moon Frye returns as Punky, this time as a single mom with three kids.

She welcomes a child named Izzy from the foster system to join the family.

In the original series, Punky was abandoned by her parents, but found a home with a widower who eventually adopted her.

The new series co-stars Freddie Prinze Jr. and begins airing on the Peacock streaming service starting Thursday.
