Red Dwarf XII (the twelfth season) will premiere on UKTV’s Dave channel on Thursday October 12th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor, Red Dwarf follows an idiosyncratic group of characters marooned on a space ship three million years in the future. The comedy series, which began its life on the BBC before moving to UKTV in 2009, is produced by Grant Naylor Productions and Baby Cow Productions and stars Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn.
In the twelfth season, the rest of the crew discover just how it feels to be Kryten when they’re arrested by the Mechanoid Intergalactic Liberation Front. The Dwarfers come across a ship where criticism is illegal, and a space station where the crew have developed a cure for evil. Meanwhile, when all the machines on Red Dwarf go on strike Rimmer and Kryten hold a Presidential election; The Cat faces an identity crisis like never before when he discovers he needs glasses; Lister discovers a simple update of the ship’s latest software could be a matter of life or death; and Rimmer decides to leave Red Dwarf in search of a parallel universe where he isn’t such a massive loser.
