 The remake of Red Dwarf will be a success because the show retains a huge cult following, according to podcast host Gary Redrup.

The comedy franchise which originally aired from 1988 to 1993, has now been remade and broadcasts on the Dave Channel.

Gary Redrup, host of the CustardTV podcast, explained how remakes can be successful.

"Red Dwarf was a pioneer in this," he told Jonny and Ash. "The BBC ditched it, Dave picked it up and they've spent a lot of money on this.

"Red Dwarf is big merchandising, there are books, toys, t-shirts...but there's also a big audience. 

"If you can find a show which had an audience, you can successfully remake things, because they come with you."
