WarnerMedia‘s upcoming streaming service HBO Max has ordered two new seasons of Aaron McGruder’s future reboot of The Boondocks, which is expected to premiere in Fall 2020. The platform will also offer all 55 episodes of the original series alongside a new 50-minute special.
McGruder, who will also return to the franchise as the series showrunner, stated: “There’s a unique opportunity to revisit the world of The Boondocks and do it over again for today. 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 new series will follow the adventure of Robert “Granddad” Freeman and his two grandsons Huey and Riley after recently moving to a suburban community in Maryland. Then they realize it’s been overtaking by Uncle Ruckus and his bizarre neo-fascist regime.
