Here’s the first look at the Red Dwarf cast back in action – Danny John-Jules as The Cat, Chris Barrie as Rimmer, Craig Charles as Lister and Robert Llewellyn as Kryten – ahead of the brand new Series XI, the first series in 4 years, which is coming exclusively to Dave in September.
The latest storyline in the trilogy sees us join the gang as 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.
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.
Dave has been the home of brand new Red Dwarf since 2009 and the three-part “Back To Earth” special remains the UK’s biggest ever non-terrestrial commission. Series XI starts in September and series XII will follow next year.
