Coming To America

The Promised Land heads to BritBox - plus a livestreamed Comic-Con panel!

26 June, 2020

If there's one question we get asked on social media more often than "Would anybody like any toast?" it's surely "When can I watch new Red Dwarf in the country I live in?" Well, fortunately, if that country is the United States or Canada, we now have an answer for you.

Red Dwarf: The Promised Land will be making it to American shores just a couple of months and change after its original UK airing - as it lands on the BritBox platform on 26th July. And in honour of the announcement, here's a new Britbox-specific trailer for the special (although if you haven't yet seen the show, do beware that it gives away a little bit more in terms of plot and gags than the pre-broadcast trailers here did!)

BritBox is currently America's streaming home of all twelve previous Red Dwarf outings - Series I-VIII, Back to Earth and X-XII - and is a subscription service that brings the best of UK-originated telly to the US and Canada. If you've never joined before, you can get a 7-day free trial before signing up for just $6.99 a month.

And that's not all - to celebrate the transatlantic crossing of the latest special, cast members Chris Barrie, Craig Charles and Robert Llewellyn, and writer/director Doug Naylor, will be taking part in a special virtual Q&A panel, streamed as part of Comic-Con @ Home. It'll take place over the convention-length weekend of 22nd-26th July - as soon as we have details on exactly when, and indeed how you'll be able to stream the event, we'll let you know, but you can also keep an eye on @Comic_Con for details.

So that's the UK, Canada and the US taken care of. Only another 192 countries to go, then...
