Red Dwarf returns for Easter special

Red Dwarf, the cult sci-fi comedy, is set to return to TV for an Easter special. Red Dwarf: Back to Earth will see Lister, Rimmer, Cat and Kryton finally make it home after 52 episodes.

The popular comedy ran from 1988 to 1999 on the BBC but the new episode has been commissioned by the TV channel Dave. Back to Earth will be part of the channel's Red Dwarf themed weekend which kicks off on Good Friday.

Watched by over 8 million viewers in the UK in its heyday, Red Dwarf was also sold to over 25 different countries worldwide, cementing its cult status. With all of the original cast members involved in the new episode, the Easter special is a must for smegheads the world over.
