Just like Patsy and Edina most Absolutely Fabulous fans have a problem with restraint which means that we DO NOT want to wait for BBC America and LOGO to serve us sloppy seconds and make us wait until the new ABFAB Episodes are aired in the UK.
So here sweetie darlings is the 2nd episode of the new AbFab arc for your New Year pleasure!
And as for SOPA and all that rot as Patsy would say “Darling, if you want to talk bollocks and discover the meaning of life you’re better off just downing a bottle of whisky. At least that way you’re unconscious by the time you start to take yourself seriously!”
Start planning those parties and stocking up on champers and nibbly bits because Absolutely Fabulous is set to return to BBC1 after an absence of six years with three NEW episodes!
The BBC said it was “putting the finishing touches to the deal” and is expected to confirm it imminently and also Joanna Lumley told Hello! magazine that shooting will begin in the summer, but she said Saunders had not yet started on the script.
“In late August I start filming on three episodes of Absolutely Fabulous, which we are all ecstatic about,” added Lumley. “Miss Saunders has been so busy writing Uptown Downstairs Abbey for Comic Relief and also Spice Girls: The Musical, I don’t think she’s started [the script].”
“Jen wrote to me and said, ‘Let’s talk through it. What do you think?’. And I said, ‘Bring it on’. Because we’re all still here. Mother’s still alive, the wonderful June Whitfield. Julia Sawalha [and] Jane Horrocks [are] all still alive and available … and I think we just have to do it,” she said at the time.
More AbFab! More vodka, chain smoking, pointless sex, psychotic self-centeredness and clueless classlessness!. That is EXACTLY what we all need right now. To brighten up this otherwise dreary world.
London’s Daily Mail reports that the full original cast of Absolutely Fabulous may return for another season.
Crack open the Bolly, darling – Absolutely Fabulous is coming back. Joanna Lumley has revealed she will be reunited with Jennifer Saunders, 52, in a revival of the hit television sitcom. The actress said she was in talks with Miss Saunders – who created the show – to bring back the champagne-guzzling, foul-mouthed, chain-smoking fashionistas for a comeback. And even though the characters Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone would by now probably be pensioners, Miss Lumley said: ‘Jen wrote to me and said, “Let’s talk through it. What do you think?” And I said, “Bring it on.” Because we’re all still here. ‘Mother’s still alive – the wonderful June Whitfield. Julia Sawalha, Jane Horrocks, the basic five Js. We’re all still alive and available – ish – to do it, and I think we just have to do it.’ The 64-year-old is currently starring on Broadway in the comedy La Bête. The final episode of the BBC show aired on Christmas Day in 2004 after seven successful years, from 1992 to 1996 and then from 2001 to 2004.
Jennifer Saunders (Edina Monsoon) has been undergoing breast cancer chemotherapy for the past year and has declined to comment on the story. Sources say she is waiting until the deal actually gets inked.
