Craig Charles has confirmed that cult British sci-fi show "Red Dwarf" is set to return for a full new season of six episodes next year reports The Daily Mail.

The show ran for eight seasons from 1988 to 1999. Ten years later, Freeview channel Dave commissioned a three-part special of the programme dubbed "Back to Earth" which aired in April 2009 and attracted over three million viewers, more than BBC2 and Channel 4 combined for the timeslot, despite reviews being generally disappointed with the reunion.

Its success has lead to Dave re-commissioning the show and Charles told Real Radio's breakfast show this week "they've just commissioned another series of Red Dwarf. We're gonna film at the end of November, December and January... We've gotta recapture the highlights like series 5 series six, that kind of stuff. If we can hit that mark then brilliant. There's no point doing it if it's a bit so-so. »
