Dwarfers and Smegheads rejoice, the popular British sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf will be returning in September for the eleventh series.
Set to broadcast on digital TV channel Dave, the news was finally reveal on the show’s official site following months of silence. Filming for the newest series actually completed at the end of last year and very little information has been leaked since.
Along with a broadcast date, the official series XI synopsis has also been revealed:
The show’s six episode run sees two of the Dwarfers’ dreams come true: Rimmer accidentally saves the life of a Space Corps Captain and is promoted to Officer, while Cat takes time off from being in love with himself to fall in love with a female Cat with a secret. Meantime, Lister wakes up to discover a deranged droid has stolen some of his body parts and Kryten has a mid-life crisis and considers leaving the Dwarfers for a younger crew. The posse also find themselves in an alternative America where modern technology is outlawed, making both Kryten and Rimmer illegal.
With big laughs and dazzling effects, Red Dwarf XI recaptures the show’s golden age.
Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn will all be reprising their roles with Red Dwarf co-creator Doug Naylor still on writing and directing duty.
