After nearly 30 years since Edina and Patsy first staggered onto our television screens, Absolutely Fabulous can be found once again on the BBC.

When the first episode of Absolutely Fabulous debuted in 1992, no one had ever seen anything quite like it on telly. And nearly 30 years on since this quintessential English comedy aired, it has still retained its ability to tickle audiences.

The public broadcaster has been kind enough to upload the entire catalogue of Ab Fab for us to stream on BBC iPlayer. It's all there, and is exactly what we need right now.

If you also feel the need to join our favourite chain-smoking and alcohol-abusing friends Edina and Patsy again but find yourselves located outside of the UK, we can help with that...

So, darlings, it's simple.

Install Beebs and you'll be able to indulge in as much Ab Fab as you wish.

Every Season of Absolutely Fabulous & the Christmas Specials

Originally airing from 1992 to 2004 across 5 seasons (plus the occasional special sprinkled between 1996 and 2012), Absolutely Fabulous became one of the BBC's most successful programmes.

The BBC has been kind enough to upload every single episode of Absolutely Fabulous from series 1 to series 5. There are also a handful of Ab Fab Specials from throughout the years.

The Cast and Creators of Ab Fab

Throughout her TV show and movie career, the writing and creativity of Jennifer Saunders' work has always been outstanding. Iconic British comedy shows such as The Young Ones, The Comic Strip and French and Saunders have all benefited from her influence.

But we must point out that the casting of Absolutely Fabulous is one of the key reasons why the show had such success. It's really an all-star cast of British female comedians

Jennifer Saunders portrays Edina - the self-absorbed mother who is in a permanent state of midlife crises - who is always lead astray by her best friend Patsy.

The incredible Joanna Lumley does a wonderful job acting as the devil in Eddy's ear in almost every scene. When Patsy and Eddy are together (with a glass of alcohol champers or whatever they can find in hand) it makes for an entertaining scene.

Sitcom royalty June Whitfield played Edina’s mother and was the source of quick wit and was always acting to knock Edina and Patsy down a peg or two (deservedly so). She was also the only one to show genuine support for Edina's straight-laced daughter Saffron (played by Julia Sawalha).

Waiting For: Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

After years of procrastination and rejected scripts, Jennifer Saunders finally was able to give us a big screen version of her show. Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie arrived in 2016 and was generally well received by audiences.

At the time of writing this article, the Ab Fab Movie is currently unavailable to stream on BBC iPlayer. We have our fingers crossed that the BBC gains the rights to the film.

But, it's not all about AbFab! There's plenty of comedy programmes to be found on Channel 4 and ITV Hub - which you also now have full access to since you (wisely) signed up to Beebs.
