Original cast (They couldn't get anyone decent to do it) Thank F*** for that. I'm delighted and thrilled.

Great news... been a fan since the beginning of the show. Please dont do any more episodes with religious themes though... that was bad!

Much appreciate all the effort you guys put in and the writing is comedy genius!

What would top this off would be the return of Jake Wood!

Just awesome news, grinning from ear to ear!

Happy happy happy! A little sad though since I won't know when I'll be able to see it in the U.S.

Great news. I assume this is on Dave?

Cannot tell you how happy I was to read this. I've been in love with Red Dwarf since the mid nineties and every time a series ends I think, "Well... we probably won't be seeing them again." And every time a year or a few rolls over and I hear something like this.

I hope Kochanski makes a return and Lister gets some sort of ending in series 12....... been waiting for THAT for a while too! ;)

How did you manage to drag Danny off the set of Death in Paradise? Does anyone else smile every time his character's name come up, or expect him to miaow loudly and start dancing?

Thrilling news. I hope I can get tickets to a recording. Very happy to have my favourite smegheads back on my screen in all new adventures.

Great to hear of two new series of Red dwarf, I Know you might not be able to say Robert but I hope either Norman Lovett or Hattie Hayridge make a return as Holly that was the one thing i felt was missing from Season X,

Spin my nipple nuts and send me to Alaska news this week

lets get real, im not bothered about boxing or babies, but this is great news

May 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNames

this news is the best of the week, I even let out a little yip whilst sneaking a read at wor. But some things are worth a funny look or three

Spin my nipple nuts. Though Red Dwarf travels for roughly 3 mil years, it doesn't travel at the speed of light the entire time.
Pardon the pedantry, but who knows what kind of hysteria misinformation like this could have caused.

Just watching season 1 again on Dave. Wouldn't it be cool if they met some of the Cat people descendents that left Red Dwarf? Just a thought.

May 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterIain Shaw

Bloody brilliant, loved the last season!

May 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJonny Mac

Great news!

Perhaps we can look forward to a new Max Headroom series too?

May 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGerry Mander

Its party time for all the little worms!

May 7, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSlugnut

The question is, will the Vindaloo have a speaking part?

May 11, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEclexia

Can't believe you posted this over two weeks ago and I'm only just seeing it now! So excited!!!

May 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMSaavik

Brilliant news Robert, thank goodness for Dave.
2016, let's see, just time to watch the first 10 series and listen to 'the man in the rubber mask' :-)
