The science fiction comedy hasn’t been on the air for three years but a couple of days ago, producer Richard Naylor, tweeted a couple of pictures confirming the start of pre-production:

Fans were able to register for tickets to see the live taping of this cult series, unfortunately the last day to sign up was September 25th, so if you snoozed you loosed…? That’s not right. Anyway, the series will tape all 12 episodes in front of a live studio audience, at the famous Pinewood Studios , between November 2015 and March 2016.
Craig Charles (Lister), Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) will all be returning. Craig Charles has in fact left a ten year run on Coronation Street to return to the Red Dwarf world.
If you’ve never seen this goofy show, that I love so much you can catch up on YouTube.
Red Dwarf will air on Dave in 2016.
You can’t see it, but I’m doing my happy dance right now!
