Best news ever. The Daily Mail reports that Absolutely Fabulous, the 90s hit starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, will return to us. The BBC confirms that Patsy and Edina will again be swimming in a sea of vodka and holding on to cigarettes for dear life this August, when filming begins.
Saunders hasn’t written the script yet, as she’s busy working on Spice Girls: The Musical, a play which we will DEFINITELY be purchasing tickets for. But both ladies and the BBC are alllll about Ab Fab being back on the air. Lumley told HELLO magazine, “The great thing is that because … we fast-forwarded to where they’re very old and nearly dead and practically plugged into vodka machines, it doesn’t matter how beyond [the original series] we do it.”
