The stars of Red Dwarf have reunited for an advert that will premiere on ITV tonight.
Lister, Cat, Rimmer and Kryten are going to star in a mini adventure for car recovery service, the AA.
The ad, called Stellar Rescue, has been shot like an episode of the British sci-fi show and get fans well and truly in the mood for a new series.
Set in space, of course, the show’s iconic spaceship Starbug breaks down on a strange planet. Lister uses the trust AA app to report the breakdown from space, and sure enough a member of their team arrives to sort the problem.
It is intended to show that no matter where you break down or what vehicle you’re driving, the AA can help you get back on the road – or back into space.
Fans – and everyone else – can watch Stellar Rescue tonight at 7.45pm on ITV.
The AA previously teased the ad by staging another stellar rescue last week, this time in Newcastle.
One unlucky fan on the way to Glasgow Comic Con found himself stuck when his vehicle, which he remodelled to look like Starbug, broke down.
An AA patrol swooped him to help him out and get his ‘spaceship’ back on the road.
The advert could explain what the show’s four stars – Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules, Chris Barrie and Robert Llewellyn were doing together in London recently.
In an Instagram picture shared by Danny, who plays Cat, the foursome posed for a ‘family photo’, teasing that all will be revealed on TV.
The actor also confirmed that filming will begin on series 13 ‘this year’, but the cast are still waiting on their scripts.
‘All we know is it’s going to be done by the end of the year,’ he told The Sun.

He added: ‘We haven’t seen a script yet, it’s all in negotiation. But I’m never worried about Red Dwarf. I’ve never been so comfortable in a gig.’
The sci-fi comedy originally ran on the BBC from 1988 to 1999. It was then revived on Dave in 2009, and again in 2012.
