The revival of “The Boondocks” has scored a two-season order from HBO Max with a total of 24 new episodes to join the original run of 55 episodes from Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.
The original series chronicled the battles of the Freeman family against an evil local government tyrant, Uncle Ruckus, who rules fictional Woodcrest County Maryland.
The new series will follow the adventures of self-proclaimed ‘Civil Rights Legend’ Robert ‘Granddad’ Freeman, and his two rambunctious grandsons Huey and Riley.
The family has recently moved to an idyllic community in suburban Maryland only to see it taken over by the tyrannical Uncle Ruckus and his bizarre neo-fascist regime. Life under Ruckus turns out to be an everyday struggle to survive.
Creator Aaron McGruder is returning for the revival series as showrunner and executive producer. The originals will also launch with the new season on the streamer in Fall 2020. Sony Pictures Animation will produce.
