Edina and Patsy are back!

BBC One has confirmed that AbFab will return with THREE specials in honor of the British show's 20th anniversary!

Jennifer Saunders (Edina), Joanna Lumley (Patsy), Julia Sawalha (Saffy), June Whitfield (Mother), and Jane Horrocks (Bubble) will be all be returning to reprise their roles!!!

YES!!!

According to press release (SPOILER ALERT):

In the first episode, fans will rejoin the beloved ensemble in the midst of a life-changing experience for one - which affects them all. In the second show, Eddy sets her sights on changing the career of a very big fish indeed. And in the concluding episode, Eddy and Patsy play their own very special part in the London 2012 Olympics. They're back, 20 years on, a teeny bit older, none the wiser but definitely still Absolutely Fabulous.

LOLz OMG! Already sounds brills!

Jennifer Saunders said:

"It's great that we are able to celebrate our 20th birthday with all the original cast. Like a good bottle of champagne we hope that we have got better with time without losing any of our sparkle. Last week when we started filming in dear old West London, it was as if nothing had changed. It was raining. Nevertheless, we are so happy to be working for an audience that has grown just a tiny bit older like us, but is still willing to let us fall over on TV in the name of PR."

Shaking and crying right now!!! We are soooo excited to have two of our favorite shameless ladies back on TV!!

Don't they look … ah hell, we're just going to say it: ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!

Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley began filming their new Ab Fab Christmas special today in London as Eddy and Patsy. This first look at the special comes from the ladies day on Bond Street, where they filmed a scene of the pair doing a bit of shopping!

SPOILER ALERT - In one seen, Eddy is denied entry into Stella McCartney's boutique, but in another, she is seen showing off her McCartney goodies to Patsy. Wonder what kind of shenanigans she go into to grab that swag?!

We're so excited for this! This is will make our whole holiday season joyful and bright!!!

Sweetie, Darling! We Have Absolutely Fabulous News!

Filed under: TV NewsAnglophilia

absolutely-fabulous-new-episodes.jpg

And it is absolutely fabulous!

Joanna Lumley has reportedly confirmed that she will film new episodes of Absolutely Fabulous this coming August!!!

Joanna had previously revealed that she wanted to return to the sitcom and according to her new interview with Hello! Magazine, things are finally coming into to place for her return. She explained:

"In late August I start filming on three episodes of Absolutely Fabulous, which we are all ecstatic about."

Ecstatic doesn't even begin to cover it! What's more than ecstatic? We're rapturous!!!

However, there is only one possible hitch in the plan - Jennifer Saunders might be a tad too busy. At present, she's working on writing two new projects, including Spice Girls: The Musical, according to Joanna and she admitted that she didn't think Jennifer has "started the script."

Hey, it's still early! She's got time! And if she doesn't, make time! This is worth it!!!

Are U elated by the prospect of more Ab Fab in your life???

Ab Fab Reunion In The Works!

Filed under: TV NewsAnglophilia

absolutely-fabulous-in-the.jpg

Holy crap! This needs to happen.

Joanna Lumley claims that she is in talks with her comedy partner-in-crime Jennifer Saunders to revive the HIGHlarious British series Absolutely Fabulous.

Lumey 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 - all our names began with J. We're all still alive and available - ish - to do it, and I think we just have to do it.

The great thing is that because in our show, we fast-forwarded to where they're very old and nearly dead and practically plugged into vodka machines and things. It doesn't matter how beyond (the original series) we do it because we know they've been that… So this makes it heaven!"

Yes! Can't wait!

Spice Girls Musical Gets Absolutely Fabulous!

Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway Babies

Absolutely fantastic news!

Judy Craymer's Spice Girls musical, Viva Forever, which is still currently in development, just got a whole lot more amazing with the news that Absolutely Fabulous' Jennifer Saunders will be writing the piece's original story!

Craymer says:

"Having Jennifer Saunders on board is the best possible start VIVA FOREVER can have. We are creating a new contemporary story about friendship, celebrity and fame with the music of the Spice Girls. Jennifer is brilliant at writing about these themes and the Spice Girls' songs connect powerfully in a smart and moving way."

Saunders continues:

"I'm thrilled and terrified at the same time. It is very exciting to be writing a musical that encompasses the music and energy of the biggest girl-band of all time. My daughters grew up with The Spice Girls; I had to write the book for them as well as myself. It has been great fun so far."

The story will allegedly focus on love, loyalty, and camaraderie, and will incorporate the music of the girl group through out!

We're thrilled!

This is a winning combination of AMAZING!

Spice Girls musical NOW, please!
