I’m constantly watching Logo’s Ab Fab marathons, so I did a complete fan girl squee when they started advertising the new episodes. Make sure you don’t miss your chance to see Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley reunite in the first-of-three new Absolutely Fabulous episodes. While it aired as a Christmas special in Britain, BBC America and Logo will air the episodes to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary (it ran from 1992-1995, 2001-2003, and 2005). Catch it on either channel at 10 pm.
In addition to Edina (Saunders) and Patsy (Lumley), Bubble (Jane Horrocks), Edina’s mom (June Whitfield), and Saffy (Julia Sawalha) will also return to join the craziness of this duo as they deal with aging and financial problems in addition to all the usual chaos that follows in their wake.
An Ab Fab movie may also be in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Saunders told the British media during press for the Christmas special that a film was in the works. She did not mention anything specific, however, so there is no word on financing, a script, or dates.
Here’s Logo’s commercial for tonight’s show.
