Early pics from AbFab, Sherlock 2


Ready for some AbFab, sweetie darling?

When filming began recently, it was as if they had never left the limo-riding, shopping, boozing lifestyle. Patsy (Joanna Lumley) and Edina (Jennifer Saunders) are back, better than ever, for three new Absolutely Fabulous specials targeted for a 2012 transmission. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we get an exclusive sneak peak at the girls at their fabulous limo-riding, shopping, boozing finest.

From the set of Sherlock 2

We all know that the long-awaited second season of Sherlock has concluded filming and are in the final editing stages. While the tentative 2012 broadcast still seems like a lifetime away, what it means, obviously, is that promotional pics are starting to find their way out of the UK. As if everyone is not already primed and ready for the premiere, from the great folks over at Sherlockology comes an early still from the upcoming new episode, “A Scandal in Belgravia” and the first glimpse of the woman herself, Irene Adler (Lara Pulver).

This concludes today’s combined brief meeting of the AbFab and Sherlock support groups. Until next time, Cheers!

    Whoa there, Bill! “The tentative 2012 broadcast”??? I thought Rebecca Eaton had been going around saying May for sure. I know the UK broadcast has been pushed back, but not enough to affect the U.S. airing, has it?

    • @Patty: Not to worry. The only reason I mentioned ‘tentative’ was not to suggest that 2012 was tentative, but that the date within 2012 was not finalized. A bit misleading but rest assured it will be 2012.

    Okay, thanks, Bill! It’s been bad having to wait until May–the thought of waiting until 2013 was giving me heart failure! 🙂
