Predicted and scheduled events[edit]

In fiction[edit]

Television and Film[edit]

  • The Evil Dexter clone from Dexter's Laboratory as mentioned in the episode "Over Labbing" will destroy Dexter in 2072.
  • The film Equilibrium takes place in 2072.[citation needed]
  • The film Ultraviolet takes place in 2072.
  • The Nickelodeon cartoon series My Life as a Teenage Robot takes place presumably in the year 2072. This is determined when title character Jenny Wakeman, or XJ-9, reveals she was activated five years previously, prompting her friend Brad Carbunkle to ask if that meant she did not remember Super Bowl C (100), which would have taken place in 2067, so if Jenny was activated that year, and the show takes place five years after, it would be set in that year.
  • The Jessie episode "The Jessie-nator: The Grudgement Day" is set in 2072.
