Red Dwarf XI - Coming Soon

Official synopsis for the eleventh series!

24 June, 2016

It's been a long wait, we know, since Red Dwarf XI was filmed at the end of last year. And we know just how desperate you've been for even a smidgen of information about what's in store for the Dwarfers in the upcoming eleventh series. And if you think it's been tough for you folks, just imagine how difficult it's been for us to have to sit on this stuff for all that time...

Red Dwarf XI - Coming Soon

But today, we're able to give you not one, but two, pretty big pieces of information. First of all, while the specific day is yet to be confirmed, we can now announce that Series XI of Red Dwarf will be broadcast on Dave in September 2016. Officially.

And as if that wasn't enough, we're sure that the next big reveal will give you plenty to chew over for a little while. Because production have also released the official Series XI synopsis. Look at it, there it is, right there, just below this here paragraph:

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.

Pretty exciting, eh? But you know what the most exciting part is? The above description doesn't even tell you the half of it. Seriously, there is so much packed into these six episodes that a synopsis like this can only scratch the surface of what's in store. In fact, when the series gets to screens you're going to wonder how we managed to keep it all in for this long...

Red Dwarf XI will air exclusively on Dave in September 2016!
