Craig Charles confirms plans for more Red Dwarf specials: ‘There’s life in the old dog yet’

Red Dwarf fans will be pleased to hear that the series will indeed return with more specials in the future, however the coronavirus pandemic has delayed plans.

The classic sitcom aired a one-off Easter special in April and saw Craig reprising his role as David Lister, Arnold Rimmer return as Barrie, Danny John-Jules as the Cat and Robert Llewellyn as Kryter.

Craig, 56, has now promised that the gang will be getting back to the action once the pandemic subsides.

‘There’s life in the old dog yet,’ the actor stated.

He added: ‘We did one that came out at Easter, the Promised Land, in a new 90-minute format.

‘We were supposed to do the other one by now but obviously Covid put paid to all of that but as soon as we can, we want to just do these 90-minute formats now so the feature-length formats because it was so well-received.’

‘We can’t wait to get together, have a laugh, have a dance, have a hug.’

As news of the Easter special was announced last year, series co-creator Doug Naylor said: ‘I’m absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity of making more Red Dwarf.

‘UKTV has been a never-ending source of support and encouragement since we first started working together ten years ago. Can’t wait to start shooting a format that I don’t think has ever been done before. Smoke me a kipper, we’re back and not just for breakfast.’

Craig joked at the time: ‘I’m really excited to get back on board with the boys from the Dwarf.

‘I can’t wait to discuss Robert’s prostate problems, Chris Barrie’s hip replacement and have a proper look at Danny’s new dentures whilst they marvel at the agelessness of the Charles physique.

‘I will surely require the services of a chiropractor after dragging these doddering misfits through what promises to be our most epic adventure yet.’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
