A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

Like, seriously, do we really need a Punky Brewster sequel series?

 

Remember Punky Brewster? That precocious little brat in piggy-tails who plagued our televisions in the mid-’80s? Well she’ll be back on TV soon, all grown up as a single mother trying to cope with precocious little brats of her own.

Universal has announced it will be developing a follow-up series to the Punky Brewster sitcom, with original series star Soleil Moon Frye signed on to play the aforementioned single mom.

Already there are moans from online critics who are saying that this particular reboot is a sign Hollywood has gone too far in its entertainment recycling and that the industry is “officially creatively bankrupt”.

Since her days as TV’s most annoying little shit, Frye has appeared on shows such as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and lent her voice to animated series such as Bratz and Robot Chicken. She has also hosted her own daytime talk show, Home Made Simple, and been a regular contributor on the US Today Show.

The original Punky Brewster first aired in 1984 and ran for four seasons. Believe it or not, the series was actually nominated for three Emmy Awards during its run, and even sparked a spin-off animated series that ran for two seasons.

It appears punters can’t get enough of the crap.
