Go back to the future with Red Dwarf

The smegging 10th series is on its way

After a 13-year hiatus, Red Dwarf is definitely back for a full series with all the old familiar faces, according to the reddwarf.co.uk website.

Red Dwarf X will be filmed in front of a studio audience at Shepperton Studios next month and in January 2012.

The official blurb for the series reads:

Red Dwarf returns for its first full series since 1999. Lister, Rimmer, Cat and Kryten face six exciting new adventures from the pen of Doug Naylor. The classic crew, the classic ship... with a brand new vision. The universe will never be the same...

And when they say Lister, Rimmer, Cat and Kryton are back, they do mean that Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn will return to the mining spaceship three million years into deep space.

Rumours had been circulating for some time that series 10 was on the way. You might be feeling a little confused about that as the last series back in 1999 was series eight. But this one's not series nine because of some sort of alternate reality mess in the mini-series Back to Earth, much discussed on this forum here.

You missed Red Dwarf, didn't you?

Free tickets for the studio audience went on offer at 2pm on Friday from Lost in TV and promptly got snapped up faster than you can say/sing "I'm gonna eat you little fishy...", at least as far as El Reg can tell from some mad refreshing for 30 mins or so on the day.

The series is tentatively slated for broadcast in September 2012 and will be shown on Dave. ®
