About Red Dwarf XII

Once again written and directed by Doug Naylor and following last year's hugely successful series XI, voted Best Comedy of the Year and Best Returning TV Sitcom by British Comedy Guide, this 12th series sees the original cast of Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) take to the skies once again for six brand-new episodes.

Red Dwarf XII

One of the beauties of the show it that literally anything could happen - and frequently does - so we're going to be extra careful not to give away any spoilers.

Having said that, here are...

5 Things that DEFINITELY will happen in Series XII

1. For the very first time, the rest of the crew discover just how it feels to be Kryten when they're arrested by the Mechanoid Intergalactic Liberation Front.

2. The Dwarfers will come across a ship where criticism is illegal, and also a space station where the crew have developed a cure for evil.

3. All the machines on Red Dwarf will go on strike forcing Rimmer and Kryten to hold a Presidential election.

4. Lister will discover that a simple update of the ship's latest software could be a matter of life or death.

5. Rimmer will decide to leave Red Dwarf in search of a parallel universe where he isn't such a massive loser.
