This news is "Absolutely Fabulous!"
According to The Daily Mail, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are set to reprise their roles in the hit British comedy "Absolutely Fabulous."
The show enjoyed a cult following when it ran intermittently from 1992 to 2005.Developed by Saunders, the series followed the exploits of public relations firm owner Edina Monsoon (played by Saunders) and her boozy buddy, Patsy Stone (played by Lumley).
"Jen wrote to me and said, 'Let's talk through it. What do you think?'" Lumley told the paper. "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."
Lumley told Hello magazine that she is set to start filming three episodes of "AbFab" starting in August.
We'll toast with some bubbly to that!
