Break out the Bolle...
Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders will return for a new series of Absolutely Fabulous, the BBC has confirmed.
The pair will reprise their much loved roles as Patsy and Edina for a three episode run of the hit show – the first new shows for six years.
Absolutely Fabulous was first broadcast in 1992 and ran for three series and a two-part special until 1996. It returned for two more series and another two specials between 2001 and 2004, with a Comic Relief edition on BBC1 in 2005.
It's odd that they're only doing three episodes...maybe they'll crank out a couple more once they get started. I'd much rather see the original cast than some horrible remake anyway.
