'Red Dwarf' series 11 still not commissioned, says Doug Naylor

By
Red Dwarf writer Doug Naylor has played down reports of a new series being commissioned, insisting that an 11th series of the sci-fi comedy is yet to be confirmed.

The space sitcom, which stars Chris Barrie, Danny John-Jules, Craig Charles and Robert Llewellyn, returned for its first full series in over a decade in 2012. The show's 10th series brought in record ratings for UKTV's Dave channel and the cast and writers have all expressed an interest in returning for series 11.

However, Dave has still not given the green light to a new run of episodes, and it is now a year since the show returned to screens.

Actor Robert Llewellyn posted a blog at the weekend insisting than "an eleventh series will happen" and that it will be "sometime in 2014".

Llewellyn has since removed the post and Naylor played down suggestions that series 11 was definitely happening.




Red Dwarf originally aired on BBC Two for eight series between 1988 and 1999. It was dropped after series 8, despite still pulling in big ratings for the broadcaster, regularly picking up over 6 million viewers.
