The cast of Red Dwarf are poised to reunite for a new series of the cult TV sci-fi series, twelve years after the spacecraft finally ran out of fuel on the BBC.

Co-creator Doug Naylor has, according to Wired, confirmed Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn are on board for a further six episodes.

The new series will air on freeview channel Dave, which had a big hit with its 2009 four-episode Red Dwarf: Back to Earth special.

Filming will begin in November on the Naylor-scripted episodes, but there are currently no details as to just what viewers can expect from the space veterans' next adventure.

The original Red Dwarf aired on the Beeb from between 1988 and 1999, and enjoyed a peak of around eight million viewers. Auntie says it was shown in 25 countries and shifted seven million DVDs and videos. ®
