Punky Brewster - Canceled By Peacock After One Season


Peacock has opted not to renew Punky Brewster for a second season. The followup to the 1984 sitcom was headlined by the original series’ star Soleil Moon Frye reprising her role as the titular character who became a pop culture staple of the 1980s.

Punky Brewster, which premiered in February, was among the first original series on NBCU’s streamer Peacock alongside fellow NBC sitcom revival Saved By the Bell and two other comedy series, Rutherfold Falls and Girls5Eva, all of which have been renewed for a second season.

“Punky Brewster was a beloved series that tackled meaningful storylines with so much heart,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “It was a bright light for so many viewers and we are forever grateful to Universal Studio Group, the producers, the cast and crew and especially to Soleil Moon Frye for reigniting the Punky Power within everyone.”
