Punky Brewster is back -- for real. The same person who played the character on the NBC show of the same name -- Soleil Moon Frye -- is set to star in the reboot, which will air on the NBCUniversal streaming service Peacock. The announcement was made on Tuesday.

According to Bonnie Hammer, chairman of Direct-to-Consumer and Digital Enterprises:

“Peacock will be the go-to place for both the timely and timeless – from can’t-miss Olympic moments and the 2020 election, to classic fan favorites like 'The Office.' ”

Moon Frye will (naturally) be a grown version of the kid Punky Brewster, who no one seems to have ever forgotten.

A "Saved By the Bell" reboot has also been announced -- that will included Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez, who are original cast members.

In addition, it's been announced that a new season of "A.P. Bio" will appear on the streaming service, as well as a spinoff of "Psych," from the USA Network.

NBC can't get enough of itself.
