Series XII is the upcoming twelfth series of Red Dwarf, following on from Series XI.

Like the previous series, it will be produced by both UKTV Play, Grant Naylor Productions and Baby Cow Productions. Filming took place back-to-back with Series XI.

Series XII is due to air on Dave in October 2017.

Announcements

On May 2, 2015 it was officially announced that two new series of Red Dwarf have been commissioned by Dave. These will once again feature the main cast of Craig Charles, Chris Barrie, Danny John-Jules, and Robert Llewellyn and will be written and directed by Doug Naylor. Recording will begin for both series in October 2015 in front of a live audience, and the twelve produced episodes will be broadcast in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Doug Naylor revealed at Dimension Jump XVII Nottingham that the shooting of Series XII will commence after a break of only three weeks after filming XI.[2]

Holly, as portrayed by Norman Lovett, is expected to return in Series XII.[3]

Summary

"For the very first time, the rest of the crew discover just how it feels to be Kryten when they're arrested by the Mechanoid Intergalactic Liberation Front. The Dwarfers come across a ship where criticism is illegal, and a space station where the crew have developed a cure for evil. When all the machines on Red Dwarf go on strike, Rimmer and Kryten hold a Presidential election, while the Cat faces an identity crisis like never before when he discovers he needs glasses. Lister discovers a simple update of the ship's latest software could be a matter of life or death. Finally, Rimmer decides to leave Red Dwarf in search of a parallel universe where he isn't such a massive loser."
