• Soleil Moon Frye took to Twitter to rally for fan support before the show was axed
  • "Punky Brewster" is the first 30-minute comedy series canceled by Peacock
  • The reboot starred Quinn Copeland as "Punky-like" girl Izzy

Streaming Network Peacock has canceled the show “Punky Brewster” after one season.

"Punky Brewster was a beloved series that tackled meaningful storylines with so much heart. 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,” NBC Universal Television and Streaming president Lisa Katz said in a statement to PEOPLE.

Peacock axed the show after its 10-episode first season, which began airing on Feb. 25.

“Punky Brewster” originally aired on NBC from 1984 to 1986. It was canceled after two seasons but was later revived for two more seasons in syndication.

According to People, “Punky Brewster” is the first half-hour comedy series that Peacock has canceled.

In the revival show, Frye reprised her role as Punky Brewster - now a divorced mother of three in her 40’s who is rediscovering her “Punky Power” after splitting with her husband played by Freddie Prinze, Jr.

In the original show, Frye also starred as Punky, an abandoned girl who is living in foster care with Chicago photographer Henry Warnimont played by the late George Gaynes.

The reboot also starred Quinn Copeland as Izzy, the young "Punky-like" girl who was sent to Punky for foster care. Izzy also came from the same shelter house where Punky lived before she was sent to Warnimont for foster care.

Cherie Johnson, who played Punky’s best friend in the original show, also reprised her role in the reboot.

Prior to the cancellation of the show, Frye retweeted fan posts to boost the show’s chances of getting a second season. However, executives at NBC Universal decided not to proceed for a second season.

Back in February, Frye told People that filming for the reboot was “surreal.”

“It’s surreal and so real. For me, Punky and Punky Power is such a part of my heart and my life. I rediscover so much about myself through her, so it's been a dream come true,” she said.
