It had previously been hinted by producer Andrew Ellard that deals were being made to produce a new six-part run, but that nothing was absolutely confirmed.
His comments came after Craig Charles, who plays curry lover Dave Lister in the show, had revealed that two new series would be produced from January 2011.
Wired reports that the series will now be filmed from November this year, and will be a follow-up from 2009's Back to Earth mini-series. Officially it will be known as series ten, though technically series nine never existed.
Charles, Chris Barrie, Robert Llewellyn and Danny John-Jules are all expected to return as the crew members of the mining ship, while Naylor will most likely pen the script.
No plot details or air dates have been confirmed, though the show will return to freeview channel Dave.
Naylor had previously revealed via director's commentary that the next series of Red Dwarf could take place before or after the events of Back to Earth, in order to explain what happened after the cliffhanger of series eight.
