Red Dwarf XII set for October start

Red Dwarf

Dave continues to crank up the publicity for the upcoming series of Red Dwarf, with the news that series 12 of the show – Red Dwarf XII – will be on our screens in October.

The official press blurb released by Dave’s press office reads as follows:

Red Dwarf XII is the twelfth series of the legendary comedy, once again written and directed by the show’s co-creator Doug Naylor and following last year’s series XI, voted “Best Comedy of the Year” and “Best Returning Comedy” by British Comedy Guide. The original cast of Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) are back for six brand new episodes recorded in front of a live studio audience at Pinewood Studios.

For the very first time, the rest of the crew discover just how it feels to be Kryten when they’re arrested by the Mechanoid Intergalactic Liberation Front. The Dwarfers come across a ship where criticism is illegal, and another where the crew have developed a cure for evil. The Cat struggles to choose between Kryten or Rimmer when the ship’s machines revolt, while Lister discovers a simple update of the red Dwarf’s latest software could be a matter of life or death. Finally, Rimmer decides to leave this universe in search of a parallel one where hopefully he isn’t such a massive loser.

Featuring a whole host of star guests, smart sci-fi and ingenious comedy, Red Dwarf XII returns to Dave exclusively this October.

It’s not just blurb we get, either. Here’s a promo image that double-bags that October announcement…
