'Absolutely Fabulous' reunion photos inspire hope for 'Arrested Development' news

absolutely-fabulous-reunion-ew-2.jpgIf the news of additional episodes and a film continuation of long-dead "Arrested Development" has you skeptical, this might brighten your day.

The upcoming reunion specials for British comedy "Absolutely Fabulous" are well underway. EW posted first look photos of Patsy ( Joanna Lumley) and Edina ( Jennifer Saunders) on set, doing two of the three things they do best: shopping and riding in limos (alcoholic beverages are conspicuously absent...)

As previously reported, three "AbFab" specials will start rolling out in early 2012 on BBC America and Logo -- which recently started airing the original series in syndication.

"Absolutely Fabulous" originally premiered in 1992 and has since aired a total of five spread out seasons. Saunders, who also created the series, last appeared on screen with Lumley in 2006 for British comedy "Clatterford."
