Word is out that Peacock has cancelled Punky Brewster after just one season. The sad news comes six months after the sitcom released its freshman run. The move makes the show the first cancellation of a scripted comedy on the streaming service.

A sequel to the beloved 1980s sitcom of the same name, Punky Brewster follows the titular character, who as a child was a smart young girl raised by a foster dad. Now all grown up, Punky is a single mother of three working to get her life back on track when she meets a young girl in the foster system who reminds her of her younger self.
