Jay and Silent Bob Will Return in Kevin Smith’s New VR Series

It’s been over a decade since Jay and Silent Bob last appeared in Clerks II, but Kevin Smith is giving his signature characters a comeback. Smith has signed on with STX Entertainment to write, create, and direct a new short-form series called Jay and Silent Bob VR.

Via The Tracking BoardJay and Silent Bob VR will of course star Jason Mewes as Jay alongside Smith as Silent Bob. However, Smith’s appearances in this show may be minimal, since the story will unfold through Silent Bob’s eyes. Essentially, viewers will experience the duo’s misadventures solely from Bob’s perspective, as Jay manages to get them in trouble time and time again.

Smith has previously shared plans to include his iconic duo in further sequels to Mallrats and Clerks, which have yet to come to fruition. Additionally, Smith has hinted at killing off Silent Bob in Moose Jaws, and bringing the duo back to Hollywood for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. The latter is reported to follow the pair as they try to stop a Bluntman and Chronic reboot from being produced, much in the way they tried to stop the original Bluntman and Chronic movie from being made in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

A production timetable for Jay and Silent Bob VR was not included in the announcement, but it seems likely to begin sometime this year.

Are you excited to see Jay and Silent Bob hit VR? And should the rest of the View Askewniverse join them in their new adventures? Let us know in the comment section below!
