“Ever since Red Dwarf was sort-of-brought-back last year, courtesy of the TV channel Dave, there’s been persistent chatters that a full-on series would duly follow. Yet, until now, there’s been no official sign of it being commissioned.
But that’s all changed. Craig Charles let slip the news when chatting on Real Radio’s breakfast show earlier this week, when he said that “They’ve commissioned another series of Red Dwarf. We’re going to film at the end of November, December and January.”
He went on to say that it was only worth doing if it was “as funny as it used to be”, arguing that “we’ve got to recapture the highlights like series 5, series 6, that kind of stuff. If we can hit that mark, then brilliant. There’s no point doing it if it’s a bit so-so.”
Robert Llewellyn confirmed the news on his website, revealing that it was a new six-episode run that was coming, and that once again, we’ve got Dave to thank for it. “The plan at the moment,” he revealed, “and this could change, the plan is that we record the new series in front of an audience.'”
