Default The Boondocks is being rebooted "for the modern era"

https://ew.com/tv/2019/06/12/the-boo...aron-mcgruder/

Sony announced this morning that "a complete re-imagining" of cartoonist Aaron McGruder's Adult Swim series is in the works. The news comes four months after McGruder briefly revived his comic strip that inspired the series to tackle President Trump and R. Kelly. The Boondocks premiered on Adult Swim in 2005. Its first two seasons aired between 2005 and 2008. Season 3 was shown in 2010. The Boondocks' last season, Season 4, aired in 2014. According to Sony's announcement, "the reboot, a satire for the modern era, is said to chronicle the adventures of the Freeman family against the evil local government tyrant Uncle Ruckus, who rules the fictional Woodcrest County, Maryland with an iron fist." Comedian John Witherspoon, who voiced Granddad, teased the reboot in a March appearance on Joe Rogan's podcast: ďIím on the cartoon. What is it? The Boondocks? I didnít change my voice for The Boondocks. And they coming back,Ē he said. ďThe Boondocks is coming back. Itís one of the best cartoons Iíve ever been on.Ē

HBO Max Picks Up "The Boondocks" Reboot for Two Seasons and a Special
by Marcus Jones
September 18, 2019



HBO Max announced Wednesday that they picked up two new seasons of "The Boondocks", centered on two young black brothers and their Granddad navigating suburban life, and a 50-minute special.

There’s a unique opportunity to revisit the world of The Boondocks and do it over again for today,” said creator Aaron McGruder. “It’s crazy how different the times we live in are now—both politically and culturally — more than a decade past the original series and two decades past the original newspaper comic. There’s a lot to say and it should be fun.

"The Boondocks" makes its return in Feb. 2020 on HBO Max.
