Red Dwarf - Plans for a New Series in 2012?

Not the best of sources I'm afraid, but I thought it worth posting.

CULT comedy Red Dwarf will blast back on screen next year.
TV channel Dave is planning a new series of the 90s sci-fi show.

Corrie star Craig Charles as curry-loving slob Dave Lister will return, along with Chris Barrie as Rimmer and Danny John-Jules, who played Cat.

Filming starts in the autumn.

Bosses at Dave were impressed in 2009 when a three-part special Red Dwarf: Back to Earth drew over three million viewers.

Scouser Craig, 46 - cabbie Lloyd Mullaney in Coronation Street - said: "It got more viewers than BBC2 and Channel 4 combined on the night, which is really good.

"So they've just commissioned another series of Red Dwarf."

The BBC2 show ran for eight series over 11 years until it was axed in 1999.

Craig added: "We're all quite like our characters - we're caricatures of ourselves.

"We've got to recapture the highlights, like series five or six.

"If we can hit that mark, then brilliant. There's no point doing it if it's so-so."
