Series 11 of 'Red Dwarf' will air on Dave in the autumn next year.
The news broke at the Sci-Fi Scarborough convention recently. A panel comprised of cast members Chris Barrie, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn confirmed the next series is in the pipeline, along with the proposed broadcast date.
Danny John-Jules – who plays Cat in the show – confirmed back in January that a new series was being written, but this is the first we've heard of a broadcast date and channel.
Filming is expected to start in October this year, with a view to the series being broadcast on Dave the following year.
The last series of the long-running comedy sci-fi – titled 'Red Dwarf X' – was broadcast a year and a half ago.
The show started on BBC Two back in 1988. It stayed on the terrestrial channel until 1999, when it went into hiatus.
The digital channel Dave brought the show back with two 'Back to Earth' specials in 2009. It then commissioned the six-part 'Red Dwarf X', which was broadcast in October and November 2012.
Earlier this year, Danny John-Jules told Digital Spy that series co-creator was writing new episodes of 'Red Dwarf'.
"Doug Naylor is writing as we speak," he said. "He told me off for ringing him up the other day and asking about it. He said I was interfering with his writing."
