Oh no Sweetie. Jennifer Saunders says Ab Fab has run its course…
Say it isn’t so. Jennifer Saunders, 58, says she’s not planning to write any more of the hit comedy series that made her a gay icon to a legion of fans. The show, which has run for five seasons and enjoyed a box office hit, which racked up £30 million, this summer, will be laid to rest after Jennifer said that she wants to spend more time with her family. The star spoke about how she is done with the show and has no plans to do any more episodes. The first programme was broadcast on the BBC in 1992 and there have been numerous specials and feature-length episodes, including The Last Shout and Boyfriend, which starred Whoopi Goldberg.
She explained to Event Magazine,
“I’m not doing anything more with Ab Fab. That. Is. It. “I can’t see the point of doing anything else with [Ab Fab]
However fans of Jennifer may have a glimmer of hope as the comedian has said that there’s other things she’d like to try post AbFab. She said,
“‘It just takes so long. There’s lots of other stuff I’d like to do. Plus, I’d like to spend time with my grandchildren.”
