Only six episodes of Clerks: The Animated Series were produced, and only two of those made it to air before ABC pulled the plug. Now, twelve years later, Kevin Smith says that he’s hopeful more episodes will be along next year.
Here’s the tweet that said it:

Smith hasn’t clarified any details, such as which network they’d be working with. Which leads me to wonder if this might, just perhaps, be an online-only affair.
That would certainly suit Smith’s revitalised indie spirit. And keep overheads low. And stay the swift axe of cancellation.
More when we have it. For now, I’m expecting Clerks toons to start streaming via in 2013.
