Absolutely Fabulous, the outrageous British sitcom about two boozy and bawdy gals, is coming back for three new American television specials on BBC America and Logo. Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley will reprise their roles as Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone, 20 years after they originally debuted on British television. “We hope that, like a good bottle of champagne we have grown better with age but lost none of our sparkle,” said Saunders, in a statement. “Viewers in the U.S. have been very kind to the show over the years and we are very happy to return on not one but two U.S. channels at once, BBC America and Logo. We fully intend to party like it’s 1991.”

“All of the originals who are back together again are still truly absolutely fabulous and we hope that the new adventures of Edina, Patsy, Saffy, Bubble and Mother, plus a few surprising guests, will entertain both our tried and trusted U.S. fans as well as gain us some new friends,” said executive producer Jon Plowman.
