Can't wait for the next season of your favorite show to be available on Netflix? It's likely you won't have to wait a long time. Unfortunately, the film industry doesn't always move as fast. Imagine having to wait for decades to find out what happens next! Such is the case with some of the most popular movie franchises in history. 

Kevin Smith has shared the details of the upcoming sequel to his cult classic, 'Clerks' (1994). Smith, who wrote and directed the movie, as well as appeared in it as the beloved character Silent Bob, released the first sequel, 'Clerks II,' in 2006. Fans thought they'd seen the last of the convenience store crew, but Smith revealed that 'Clerks III' will hit theaters this September! However, it will be shown on two nights only, September 13 and 15. The special screening events will be accompanied by behind-the-scenes footage featuring Smith and the rest of the cast. 

The trailer reveals that Randal, lead character and convenience store clerk, has decided to make a movie about his life working at the Quick Stop following a  major heart attack. The storyline was inspired by Kevin Smith's own experiences, as the director had a serious heart attack in 2018 which inspired him to change his lifestyle and become vegan. 'Clerks III' will see the return of all of the favorite characters from the original.
