Everything we know so far about Red Dwarf XI & XII as official synopsis lands
As the eleventh season of Red Dwarf creeps closer and closer to its September premiere, Dwarfers everywhere have been sitting tight to receive a mere smidgen of information about what’s in store.
Now, the official Red Dwarf site has published the official synopsis for series XI, which will air exclusively on Dave this summer.
Here’s what we know so far:
Red Dwarf XI, the eleventh series of the legendary sci-fi comedy, reunites the original cast of Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) along with a host of guest stars for a brand new series recorded in front of a live studio audience at Pinewood Studios. The series is written and directed by Red Dwarf co-creator, Doug Naylor, and produced by Richard Naylor and Kerry Waddell for Baby Cow Productions & Grant Naylor Productions.
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.
Of course that’s not even the half of it, and fans will have to wait and see what else the creators have up their sleeves.
Seasons XI and XII of Red Dwarf have now both finished filming, and according to the official @RedDwarfHQ Twitter account, Season XII will debut on Dave at some point in 2017.
