New Red Dwarf Specials – Series 9 Episode List | Celebrating 20 Years of This Classic Comedy

Ever since the classic comedy Red Dwarf aired it’s last show in 1998 on a cliffhanger ending there has been talk of more shows to come. However, a decade later the Red Dwarf audience have been denied of any new shows, but this is about to change.

There was talk of a new Red Dwarf movie and a script was written but Doug Naylor, a Red Dwarf writer, was unable to secure funding for the movie.

Back in August 2008 we heard news of a brand new 1 hour special in the works complete with the original Red Dwarf cast. You can see Robert Llewellyn discussing the new special in the radio interview below:

Four New Red Dwarf Specials Announced

However, since that interview the plans for Red Dwarf have changed again. It has been announced that there will be four, half hour Red Dwarf specials for the UK TV channel, Dave.

It will of course contain the original cast and is planned to air sometime in 2009. The current episode list (subject to change) is as follows:

  • Episode OneThe Making Of The Specials
    A highly entertaining look at what goes on behind the scenes on a Red Dwarf production.
  • Episode Two Red Dwarf Special: Part One
    The cast get back into character, and costume, a decade on…
  • Episode ThreeRed Dwarf Special: Part Two
    The adventure continues…
  • Episode FourA Clip Show With a Serious Difference
    The cast do it their way. Red Dwarf as you have never, ever seen it before!

Currently no announcements have been made about launching the Red Dwarf TV series to be watched online. However, this is something ‘Dave’ TV should definitely be considering with the growing popularity of online viewing.

While we wait for the new show to air check out this classic Red Dwarf scene:

    i think that the new 4 episodes will be great but they should make a series 9 as in the last episode in series 8 it’s says “the end …the smeg it is ” i think that the fans would love to see a new series and it would be a lot of fun

    Me and my friend have been watching all of the Red Dwarf episodes religiously, because I was basically brought up on it although it finished when I was 3. Whenever there’s a spare half hour, I always have chance to watch one! I’m definately looking forward to the new episodes and hope that there’d be more to come because it’s that popular and loved!
