New Episodes of ‘Ab Fab’ Will Air This Year

The BBC reports that in honor of the show’s 20th anniversary, Absolutely Fabulous will return to TV later this year with three new specials. All of the original cast members are reportedly on board, and the 2012 London Olympics will be involved in at least one episode’s plotline — which should prove interesting. “Like a good bottle of champagne we hope that we have got better with time without losing any of our sparkle,” says Jennifer Saunders. “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.” We can’t wait until these specials come stateside. How about you, sweetie-darlings?
