After years of rumours and attempts to bring the show back in one way or another, it’s finally been revealed Red Dwarf will return to telly on Dave as a two-part Easter special. The episodes will see the cast finally return to Earth after a slight three million year detour.
“The new two-part series Red Dwarf: Back to Earth will be followed by a “no holds barred” episode without sets, special effects or autocue. The weekend will climax with Red Dwarf: the Making of Back to Earth, a behind-the-scenes special from the new episodes.”
