Absolutely Fabulous - New Episodes!

Are you a fan of Britain's most notorious fashion-flaunting, male-escort hiring, daughter-abusing, label-whoring duo to ever hit television?  In the 1990's my circle of fashion friends were glued to the set for Patsy (Joanna Lumley) & Edina's (Jennifer Saunders) adventures.  In the early part of the last decade, the ladies returned again to throw us a bone with two additional seasons and a special.  

The show made a household name (and punchline) out of "LaCroix".  It paid tribute to the top fashion designers and demonstrated visually how bad high-fashion could be in the wrong hands (or backside).  It celebrated and parodied decadence with Edina's daughter Saffron as the moral center (and wet blanket).  Stateside, they inspired a new genre of drag queens with weekly events in Downtown NYC devoted to the duo.  

The Guardian UK has just announced that our favorite ladies are gearing up to grace us with three more episodes.  They begin filming this summer with the original cast (June Whitfield as Mum,  Julia Sawalha as Saffron,  Jane Horrocks as Bubble) expected to return.   

Unfortunately, there is no air date set for U.S. or even the UK.  We'll let you know as soon as can!  In the meantime, let's break out the Bolly!
