New Trailer for Red Dwarf X and a UK Airdate!

Big news for those that love great comedy: a new teaser for the upcoming tenth series of Red Dwarf has made its way online – and we finally have launch date for the new episodes too.  The sci-fi favorite will officially be back starting October 4! UK network Dave announced the series’ official premiere date this week, using a…quite innovative social media promotion involving a helium balloon with a curry and a can of lager attached to it being launched into space. (Seriously. I’m not making that up. You can actually watch video of it on the Dave website.)

The tenth series will feature the first new episodes of Red Dwarf on TV since the Back to Earth mini-series in 2009. And if you don’t count that – technically it’s not a full series after all – the sci-fi comedy’s been off the air since 1993! (And here I thought Sherlock fans had it bad with the waiting…..)

Watch the new teaser for yourself below and share your thoughts in the comments. Are you excited for the return of Lister, Kryten and company? Or do you think the show’s run its course?

No word yet on when Americans might be able to see the new Red Dwarf series stateside, but we’ll keep you posted!

In this new teaser, Kryten and the Cat experience a strange synchronicity. Or is it just a crazy coincidence?
