Red Dwarf to film new season 'this year' but cast haven't got scripts

Danny John-Jules has revealed a new series of Red Dwarf is being filmed this year.

The actor, who plays Cat on the sitcom, said everything is still in the early ‘negotiation’ stages.

So early in fact that the cast haven’t even got their scripts yet.

‘All we know is it’s going to be done by the end of the year,’ he told The Sun.

‘We haven’t seen a script yet, it’s all in negotiation. But I’m never worried about Red Dwarf. I’ve never been so comfortable in a gig.’

He added that fans will love watching a sitcom that’s not online.

‘The fans are over the moon, spinning cartwheels because unless you’re watching Netflix, what are you going to watch as a sitcom in England,’ he said.

His comments come after the Strictly Come Dancing star was reunited with his Red Dwarf co-stars, Craig Charles, Chris Barrie and Robert Llewellyn, sharing a ‘family photo’ on Instagram.

‘All will be revealed in a couple of weeks,’ he posted, hinting that there a teaser will be aired ‘ont-tellé’.

Earlier this month Danny shared an Instagram video of the foursome out and about in London, with his hashtag #WetDwarf getting fans even more excited for what’s coming.

The sci-fi comedy originally ran on the BBC from 1988 to 1999. It was then revived on Dave in 2009, and again in 2012.

Last year Kryten actor Robert along with Danny dropped a pretty big hint that filming on series 13 would start in 2019.

Previously creator Doug Naylor revealed his plans to take the sitcom to the stage for a one-off special.

Speaking to Express, he said: ‘I mean do a live show at the O2 – so we need to get a schedule that works for the O2 and certainly for Red Dwarf 13. Probably if we did a Red Dwarf 13 and 14 it would make the O2 live show more difficult.

‘So we’ll probably do Red Dwarf XIII, live show and come back and probably do XIV after that,’ he added.
