Lister, Rimmer, Cat, and Kryten are back as beloved sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf returns for a brand new series.

The beloved sci-fi comedy was originally created by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor. 6 Music DJ Craig Charles stars as Dave Lister, a low ranked caretaker on board the city-sized mining ship Red Dwarf who finds himself the last remaining human being alive after an accident kills the rest of the crew.

He wakes after 3 million years in suspended animation, his only companions the hologram of his pernickety and contemptuous bunkmate Rimmer, a creature that evolved from his pet cat, named Cat, ship’s computer Holly, and Kryten - an android they rescue from a shipwreck.

Star Robert Llewellyn said (via British Comedy Guide: "We knew we were going to do more Red Dwarf and we're actually now doing it in the middle of October to the middle of November this year. A 90-minute special, three half-hours. So yes, we are making more. I can't believe I've agreed to do it, I'm insane. I'm much too old."

The series ran for eight series on the BBC from 1988 to 1997, before being revived on Dave for three full series and a feature length special titled ‘The Promised Land’.

Every episode of the show’s classic run on the BBC is now available on iPlayer.
