    Film Red Dwarf Returning For Two New Series

    The boys from the Dwarf are posse-ing again. Three years on from Red Dwarf X, Lister, Rimmer, Kryten and the Cat will return to UK freeview channel Dave for series XI and XII, to be broadcast over the next two years. The news was announced accompanied with a familiar theme in the video below over the weekend.




    The sci-fi sit-com's original run was on the BBC for eight series between 1988 and 1999. It was then picked up by Dave in 2009 for an odd three-episode mash-up taking in Coronation Street and Blade Runner, before its full six-episode run three years ago.

    Despite the long hiatus its new episodes were still able to pull in audiences not far shy of (and occasionally over) two million. Since it first aired on the BBC it's been shown in 25 territories worldwide.

    "[We were] originally asked for more shows back in 2012," says Red Dwarf's co-creator Doug Naylor, "but frustratingly it's taken until now to get our ducks in a row and all the boys available at the same time. Now they are, we're all absolutely delighted."

    Craig "Lister" Charles has been playing cabbie Lloyd Mullaney on Coronation Street for the last decade, but will leave the soap (for the time being, at least) to rejoin his crew of space misfits.

    "Lloyd has become a huge part of my life and I've had an absolutely fantastic ten years, " he says. "But I feel I owe it to my colleagues on Red Dwarf to join them in filming the new series and finding out what is in store for Lister and the others."

    The two series will shoot back to back, and production starts in the autumn. Red Dwarf XI will make its debut on Dave in 2016, with XII following in 2017.

    More good news for me.

    Despite the newer series not being anywhere near as cult or funny as the first 3 or 4. I did think red dwarf x was more back to the roots and enjoyed it a lot. They all looked old tho!

    Fkin better than corrie any day of the week...

    Watched the first 2, still good but thought the 2nd was better than the 1st one
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    For those interested you can stream up to 1 week in advance of the episode airing, I'm happy to wait but I know there will be a few who can't

    Worst comedy ever? really? i can accept its not everyones cup of tea but its not that bad.
    Personally i love it but i will accept a lot of that is nostalgia because I used to watch it as a kid with my old man but i still genuinely find it funny.

    Worst comedy ever hands fucking down is the Mighty Boosh - those fuckers need removing from the planet

    If I’m honest it was Craig Charles, I’m not a huge fan of the scouse accent (I once had a traumatic experience at the hands of a scally with a Stanley knife in a club in Liverpool in the early nineties.) and I could never watch it for more than five minutes without having flashbacks.
