“The Boondocks” will officially return with its original creator, Aaron McGruder.
As we previously reported, John Witherspoon aka Granddad Freeman, announced that the show would be making its return two weeks ago. Sony Pictures Animation confirmed the announcement and the return of McGruder.
According to Variety, Sony Pictures Animation announced new projects they have on the way including a Boondocks “reimagining” which is set to arrive in 2020. Sony handled production for every season of The Boondocks with exception of the fourth season which was also created without Aaron McGruder.
The plot is reportedly going to be an updated version of the original show while reflecting the current political landscape. It’ll follow the Freemans’ battle against Uncle Ruckus, who’s now “rules fictional Woodcrest County Maryland, with an iron fist.” Of course, Grandad, Huey and Riley will try to combat Uncle Ruckus in ways that are “both topical and radical.”
