It’s been 20 years since the original series debuted, and Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders are returning to the screen – the big screen, this time-to reprise their roles as the flamboyant Patsy Stone and Edina “Eddy” Monsoon of Absolutely Fabulous.
Tell everyone you know: they're back!
The duo has made a few sporadic television appearances since the original airing of their 1996 sitcom, with the series returning to the screen from 2001-04. Following that, Lumley and Saunders celebrated the show's 20th anniversary with three special episodes gone to air. Since then, the series' avid audience has been left in a not-so-fabulous comedic drought.

Now, we are absolutely ecstatic that the melodramatic duo is making their Hollywood debut with their first-ever feature movie. The official trailer, featured above, depicts the pair getting into their usual glamorous mischief, but this time, model Kate Moss is making an appearance.
After having a deliberate run-in with the heroin-chic starlet, the chain-smoking fashionistas find themselves in their greatest predicament so far: they've “killed Kate Moss.”
They've killed Kate Moss!
Also featuring Australian comedic actor, Rebel Wilson and Mad Men's Jon Hamm, the film is promised to hit theatres “soon” and is anticipated to be the most absolutely scandalous, absolutely gorgeous movie of the year. We can hardly wait to see how Patsy and Edina get out of this one.
