Kevin Smith has announced that he held a “pre-pre-production” meeting with Jay Mewes and producer Jordan Monsanto for a Jay and Silent Bob reboot. He further said that the show will make a comeback on Netflix.

As per IGN, the reboot was announced back in 2017, when Smith said that he had begun his work on the first draft of the script. In a Consequence of Sound report, Smith explained how this film is not a traditional reboot. He said, "It’s a movie that makes fun of sequels and remakes and reboots while being all three at the same time.”

The fictional characters, portrayed by Mewes and Smith, made their debut in 1994 American independent black comedy film Clerks. The characters, belonging to Kevin Smith's fictional universe View Askewniverse, were shown selling marijuana in front of the convenience store in Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks 2.

Jay and Silent Bob have appeared in most of Smith's films, with the exceptions of Jersey Girl, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Cop Out, Red State, Tusk and Yoga Hosers.
