Aaron McGruder, the creator of Adult Swim’s popular and edgy cartoon series The Boondocks, is gearing up for a reboot with Sony Pictures Animation set to be released in 2020
Many fans were excited to hear the announcement of the “reimagining” of the show, but others feared the “reimagining” meant that Sony was going to take away the show’s edginess with a smoother approach. Not necessarily. The partnership is a revival of a past relationship Sony had with previous Boondocks seasons. Sony handled the production of every Boondocks season except the fourth. Season 4 was also the only one made without creator Aaron McGruder.
To reassure fans that the show will continue to provide hilarious social commentary on President Trump, R Kelly, and other radical topics, Sony revealed that McGruder is back on board to guide the creative direction.
The show will continue to follow the Freemans battles against Uncle Ruckus, who is now running the Woodcrest County government. Huey, Riley, and Grandad will attempt to fight Ruckus’s in ways that are “both topical and radical.”
