Last month, it emerged that the first new episodes of the cult show since 1999 were being filmed and would air on Dave over Easter.
Red Dwarf: Back To Earth will consist of three parts written and directed by Doug Naylor.
Chris Barrie, who played Arnold Rimmer on the show, told The Sun that the programme's comeback could last beyond these episodes.
Barrie said: "We all think this could be the start of something big - perhaps a new mini-series, a film or just a series.
"None of us has ever closed the door on Red Dwarf."
