Red Dwarf To Return In September

Red Dwarf actor Robert Llewellyn has confirmed that the wildly-popular cult sitcom will be returning to our screens in September.

Llewellyn, who plays pedantic android Kryten, broke the news in a a rather mundane statement on Twitter last night: “Red Dwarf X will be broadcast on Dave in September 2012” he wrote.

The show was last on our screens in 2009, when a three-part miniseries titled Back to Earth was shown on Freeview over the Easter weekend. Yet the upcoming tenth series will consist of six episodes and producers have returned to the old format of filming in front of a live studio audience.

All of the old cast; Craig Charles, Chris Barrie, Danny John-Jules and Llewellyn are all reprising their original roles while Doug Naylor resumes writing duties.
