Mallrats was first released in 1995 and was a commercial success. The film centers around a pair of young slackers who spend their days hanging around the local mall. Following the success of the movie, fans have been waiting in anticipation of a sequel.
While fans did get a couple of spin-offs like Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, they haven’t gotten the complete sequel they have been waiting for. However, that might change soon.

However, we will have to wait for the official confirmation. Stay tuned to Thirsty for News as we keep you updated on this story as it develops,
