20 years after the film was released, a sequel was [[http://www.slashfilm.com/kevin-smith-mallrats-2-2015/ unexpectedly announced]] by Smith, titled ''Mallbrats''; they're doing this before ''Clerks III'' as a tribute to late Universal producer Jim Jacks, who supported Kevin, the movie and a potential sequel even after the movie flopped; almost all of the cast (with the exception of Ben Affleck) has been confirmed to return. Filming's scheduled to begin at the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exton_Square_Mall Exton Square Mall]] in the Philadelphia suburbs in 2016; according to [[http://www.denofgeek.us/movies/mallrats-2/249676/mallrats-2-kevin-smith-drops-new-details this article,]] it'll basically be the old "Die Hard in a mall" idea Smith had tossed around, but with a "Save the Clock Tower" element, specifically having Brodie try to save the mall by organizing a Comic-Con, only to have terrorists invade. Ralph Garman (the host of ''Series/TheJoeSchmoShow'' and one of Smith's more recent media partners) will portray the terrorist leader, and Creator/BruceCampbell has been cast in an unknown role. [[http://consequenceofsound.net/2016/06/kevin-smith-confirms-mallrats-2-will-be-a-10-episode-series/ More recently]], Smith revealed that, due to being bogged down with legal issues between him and Creator/{{Universal}} (a partner in Gramercy), the sequel will be reconfigured into a 10-episode TV series instead.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: The "dirt mall" that Brodie and T.S. go to was the US 1 Flea Market. It's now a multiplex.

Taking place a day before ''Film/{{Clerks}}'', with the usual parodies and ''Star Wars'' references (and a surprising [[TheCameo cameo]] by [[Creator/StanLee Stan 'The Man' Lee]]).

** Actually picked up on in the ''Chasing Dogma'' series of comics that has, as the name suggests, the movies ''Chasing Amy'' and ''Dogma'' as bookends - The series explains how Jay and Silent Bob end up in the same town as Bethany - They're searching for Shermer, Illinois (the site of many a John Hughes movie, and naturally, nonexistent), and along the way, end up rescuing a chimp which is hunted, in a hilarious ''Fugitive'' spoof, by a {{Tommy Lee Jones}} lookalike. Presumably needing some narrative for ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'', Smith recycled this with Will Ferrell in the Jones role.

* GoodCounterpart: Brodie to his cousin Randal in a way- while both are DeadpanSnarkers who are obsessed with films and/or comics, Brodie is significantly nicer to T.S. than Randal is normally to Dante. Unlike Randal, he shows he's capable of forming good relationships (even if his relationship with Rene was rocky), gets along quite well with Jay and Silent Bob, and will step up to help his friends and stop assholes (even if one tactic is to shove his own hand up it).
