Filming of new episodes of the British cult hit Absolutely Fabulous has been confirmed by one of the stars, Joanna Lumley, according toThe Guardian.
Lumley will again play Patsy Stone opposite Jennifer Saunders as Edina Monsoon in the enduring comedy series, with three new episodes scheduled to being shooting this summer. Lumley ignited speculation about a new season last year, when she told a reporter that Saunders had written her about relaunching the series.
A statement released by the BBC reads, “We’re putting the finishing touches to the deal to bring it back and as soon as we’re in a position to confirm it we will.”
AbFab, as it was dubbed by fans, was first broadcast in 1992 and was a huge hit among gay audiences. New seasons and occasional specials were filmed periodically until 2005.
