‘AbFab’ returns Stateside with specials

Saunders, Lumley to reprise roles with original cast

“AbFab” is BackBack.

Oft-revived BBC sitcom “Absolutely Fabulous” will return to Stateside tellies via LGBT-focused cabler Logo, which will team with BBC America to co-produce three new specials, tentatively set to premiere simultaneously on Logo and BBCA after their U.K. premiere dates.

The first two specials will likely air around Christmas on BBC proper, with U.S. dates to follow in January.

Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley will reprise their roles as Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone, as will the rest of the original cast of the show. Jon Plowman will return as exec producer.

“We fully intend to party like it’s 1991,” said Saunders in a press release.

Logo obtained rights to broadcast reruns of the program’s previous five seasons earlier this year.
