Instead of sitting around mourning the lack of news, I thought I’d go on a hunt for some for once. So imagine my astonishment when I came across this:
April 03, 2005
At last check, Red Dwarf IX was in the writing stages. As far as the continuity line for the new Series we won’t know if it’ll pick up after the Red Dwarf Movie or have a continuation off Red Dwarf VIII’s “Only The Good” Finale. More details should be finalized after the Movie is completed. Expect at least 8 more new Episodes for Red Dwarf IX.
More as the Guide Editor is able to confirm but so far that’s the latest details.
Forgive me for being skeptical, but… I’m skeptical. Very. Fucking. Skeptical. Especially about the comment on the continuity line – we all know the Movie is completely seperate from the TV series, so any possible Red Dwarf IX having anything to do with the Movie is extremely unlikely.
Either GNP has a major surprise up their sleeve, or people are just Making Things Up. Guess which I think is the most likely?
