Like her old pals Punky (Soleil Moon Frye) and Cherie (Cherie Johnson), Margaux is now an adult, and working as the high-powered head of her own PR firm. Margaux will swing by to visit her friends and to offer a special surprise to Punky's adorable foster daughter, Izzy (Quinn Copeland).

The much-anticipated comedy catches up with Punky, who's now trying to tap into her Punky Power as a single mom of three kids. Freddie Prinze Jr. also stars as Punky's ex-husband, Travis, with child actors Noah Cottrell and Oliver De Los Santos as their sons Diego and Daniel, and Lauren Lindsey Donzis, as the couple's oldest daughter Hannah.

Peacock recently announced that Jasika Nicole has joined the cast as Cherie’s lawyer girlfriend, Lauren.

Frye and Johnson told People this week that reviving the series, which originally aired from 1984 to 1986 on NBC and from 1987 to 1988 in syndication, is "a dream come true."

"It's surreal and so real," Frye gushed to the magazine. "For me, Punky and Punky Power is such a part of my heart and my life."

"It's magical," Johnson added. "I'm 6. Six years old, all over again, sitting next to my best friend."

Both actors have recently shown episodes of the original series to their kids, with Frye's two sons, Lyric, 7, and Story, 4, becoming major fans.

"The boys are super into (the show) now, and it's so fun to watch it through their eyes," Frye shared. "I actually watched the first few episodes not too long ago, and I was crying. They were emotional watching me (be) emotional. It just strikes such a chord."
