Sony Announces Return Of “The Boondocks” With Creator Aaron McGruder

After years of speculation and rumours, it has finally been confirmed that The Boondocks will get a reboot.

On Wednesday, Variety reported that Sony Pictures Animation has announced a host of new projects slated to be released in 2020, including a Boondocks “reimagining.”

Fans may fear the terminology means the studio will smooth out the show’s trademark edginess, but the partnership is actually a rekindled connection. Sony handled the production of every Boondocks season except the fourth. Season 4 was also the only one made without creator Aaron McGruder.

To solidify that the show will continue to provide hilarious social commentary, Sony revealed that McGruder is back on board to guide the creative direction.

Studio executives described a plot that is eerily similar to the current political sphere, one that will follow the Freemans’ battles against Uncle Ruckus, who is now an evil tyrant running the Woodcrest County government. Huey, Riley, and Grandad will attempt to fight Ruckus’s iron fist in ways that are “both topical and radical.”
