Lister, Rimmer, Cat and Kryten are coming home, as celebrated sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf returns to the BBC on iPlayer. Every episode of the show’s run on the BBC is now available on iPlayer, as well as the revived series including the recent feature-length special The Promised Land, which originally aired on Dave.

Red Dwarf hasn’t been on the BBC since 2007.

In addition to Red Dwarf, the BBC is adding several other classic comedy boxsets to iPlayer including Kathy Burke’s vicious odd couple sitcom Gimme Gimme Gimme and Spencer Jones’ Mister Winner.

“The strangest gang in space are back on the BBC – with classic episodes of Red Dwarf right from the very beginning touching down soon,” said Dan McGolpin, Director of BBC iPlayer and Channels. “Whatever makes you chuckle, there is a series waiting for you on BBC iPlayer.”
