Punky Brewster's Soleil Moon Frye returns to iconic role as spunky single mom in show revival's first trailer

PUNKY Brewster star Soleil Moon Frye has returned to her iconic role as a spunky single mom in the show's first reboot trailer.

The show will air on Peacock and see Soleil's iconic character all grown up as she returns to her titular role in the popular eighties sitcom.

Thirty-seven years after she appeared on our screens, Punky is now an independent, divorced mom of three kids.

She still has her best pal Cherie (Cherie Johnson) in the newly revived TV series.

In 2021, Punky will also help out a rebellious orphan called Izzy – played by Quinn Copeland – who has a similar background to her.

In the newly-released trailer, Punky's oldest daughter Hannah (Lauren Lindsey Donzis) can be seen writing on her mom's online dating profile.

"Newly single. Professional photographer. Used to be fun," she types, to which Punky replies "I'm still fun," before she's seen doing her iconic "can't stop, won't stop" dance around the kitchen table.

Nearly four decades after its small-screen debut, the show will now explore Punky's complex relationship with ex-husband Travis, played by 90s hunk Freddie Prinze Jr.

One morning, Punky accidentally kisses her ex and refers to him as "babe," prompting little Izzy to comment "you still have a thing for him."

"We're still a family," Travis can be seen telling their son. "We just look a little different."

However, Punky's experience would appear to mirror Soleil's real life after she split from her husband Jason Goldberg, 48, in December 2020 after 22 years of marriage.

The couple, who share four children together – Poet Sienna Rose, 15, Jagger Joseph Blue, 12, Lyric Sonny Roads, 6, and Story, 4 – wed in 1998 and were believed to have one the strongest marriages in showbiz.

People confirmed the news, with a rep telling the outlet: “Soleil Moon Frye and Jason Goldberg quietly separated this year.

“Their priority will continue to be their four beautiful children as they move forward with love and compassion.”

The 44-year-old actress will also be appearing in a new documentary to complement the Punky Brewster reboot.

Titled KID 90, which will premiere on Hulu, the film will feature footage from the 1990s along with new interviews with some of her lifelong friends.

The documentary will also incorporate voicemails, audio recordings and even entries from her diary with the footage. 

Meanwhile, the Punky Brewster reboot series on Peacock premiers on February 25.
