It's hard to believe that it's been four years since we last saw the space shenanigans of Lister, Rimmer, Kryten and Cat (Red Dwarf X aired back in 2012 -- I know, right? Time flies ...), but here we are, and we finally have the first trailer for Red Dwarf XI.
The cult sci-fi British comedy series is coming back for another six-episode season on Dave (a UK TV cable channel) on Sept. 22, and we have the synopses of the six new adventures that will feature our four hapless space explorers.
I don’t know about you, but it’s going to be pretty darn awesome to see the return of Chris Barrie as Rimmer, Craig Charles as Lister, Danny John-Jules as Cat and Robert Llewellyn as Kryten on our TV screens. I'm sure many of you have missed those guys. Heck, just look at those faces.
Here are the episode synopses:
TWENTICA (Transmission date – 22nd September, 9.00pm)
The Dwarfers find themselves in an alternative version of America where modern technology is prohibited, making Rimmer and Kryten illegal. The Dwarfers infiltrate the tech savvy underground and try to bring down the authoritarian regime.
SAMSARA (Transmission date – 29th September, 9.00pm)
When the Dwarfers investigate a crashed ship at the bottom of an ocean moon, Lister and Cat become trapped together and Lister’s nightmare begins. Meantime Rimmer and Kryten discover the ship is controlled by a dark force.
GIVE AND TAKE (Transmission date – 6th October, 9.00pm)
After an altercation with a deranged droid Lister has his kidneys organ-napped. The only solution is to ask Cat, the most selfish creature in the universe, to give him one of his.
OFFICER RIMMER (Transmission date – 13th October, 9.00pm)
After a scandalous piece of good fortune Rimmer saves the life of a bio-printed Captain and is promoted, fulfilling his life-long dream of becoming an Officer. He immediately opens an Officer’s club, which is out of bounds to the lower orders, and uses the bio-printer to fill it with versions of himself.
KRYSIS (Transmission date – 20th October, 9.00pm)
Kryten has a mid-life crisis and changes his body cover from Mech grey to Ferrari red. The posse try and show him how much he’s achieved in life by taking him to visit a mechanoid from his old fleet.
CAN OF WORMS (Transmission date – 27th October, 9.00pm)
Cat takes time off from being in love with himself to fall head over heels in love with a lady Cat with a big secret.
And now, time to sink your teeth into the first Red Dwarf XI trailer. (Don't ever change, guys.)
