First Full Trailer For The Aaron McGruder-Less New Season Of 'The Boondocks'

The Boondocks returns to the Cartoon Network’s late night Adult Swim programming block – for its 4th and final season – this month, on April 21st. 

However, as already announced, the show’s creator, Aaron McGruder, is not involved in the return of the award-winning animated series, produced by Sony Pictures Television.

Per the press release from the network, a mutually agreeable production schedule could not be determined. No other reasons were given. Although McGruder share his side of the story in a piece Sergio posted HERE.

According to the release, the new season follows Huey, Riley and Granddad who meet several new and familiar characters in outrageous situations. Some of the characters include a long lost Kardashian sister that Granddad is dating; Tom DuBois as R&B bad boy “Pretty Boy Flizzy’s” lawyer, and Graddad’s love relationship with his iPhone’s Siri. 

Read more from the press release below:

In The Boondocks, Robert “Granddad” Freeman (John Witherspoon, Friday After Next) is the cantankerous legal guardian of his rambunctious grandkids Huey and Riley (Regina King-Southland and Ray) and has moved them from the south side of Chicago to the quiet and safety of “The Boondocks” (in this case, suburban Woodcrest), hoping that he can ignore them altogether and enjoy the golden years of his life in peace. But Huey, a 10-year-old left wing revolutionary, is determined not to enjoy the affluence of suburbia. This attitude is seconded by his 8-year-old brother, Riley, a proud product of contemporary rap culture. Although they torture each other and provoke the neighborhood, they are no match for Granddad, who is eccentric even by “crazy-ass-old-black-man” standards. Gary Anthony Williams (Boston Legal) as Uncle Ruckus, Gabby Soleil (Johnson Family Vacation) as Jazmine Dubois and Jill Talley (Camp Lazlo) as Sarah Dubois round out the cast, with Cedric Yarbrough (Reno 911!) returning as the voice of fan favorite Colonel H. Stinkmeaner in addition to Tom Dubois.

The new season finds Huey, Riley and Granddad encountering a roster of characters, both new and familiar, in uproarious situations, including Granddad’s dating a long lost Kardashian sister; their friend Tom DuBois acting as R&B bad boy “Pretty Boy Flizzy’s” lawyer in exchange for relationship advice; Granddad’s love affair with Siri on his new iPhone; and the Freemans’ foray into the lethal black market of the hair-care industry à la “Breaking Bad.” Throughout the final season, an eclectic mix of hip-hop artists, actors, comedians and media personalities will voice guest characters on the series, including Jenifer Lewis (Think Like a Man), Dennis Haysbert (24), Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Ghostface Killah, CeeLo, Lil Wayne, Donald Faison (Scrubs), Aisha Tyler (Balls of Fury), Kym Whitley (Reno 911!), Tichina Arnold (Everybody Hates Chris), Mo’Nique (The Parkers), Marion Ross (Happy Days), Tavis Smiley, Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Bill Duke (X-Men: The Last Stand), and Cedric the Entertainer (Talk to Me). Reprising their guest roles from last season are Xzibit, Charlie Murphy, MTV’s Sway and Katt Williams, among others.

STOP pouring SALT on Black artist. I see this is a recurrent theme these days. White people has ramped up the SALT POURING on Black NFL/NBA and Latino MLB players.


Because the particular Professional Players are Exceptionally Good at what they do. So they try to sully them up with Lies and fabrications.


Jealousy and the fact that – DOLLARS are not flying around. When dollars are flying around white people are LESS jealous.


I'm a little sad that the creator isn't part of the show anymore…but these things happen. I wasn't too interested in the trailer until I saw the Breaking Bad bit. Now I have to watch it.

It's not that serious that Aaron is leaving the show. He's full of himself. He stole a lot of material from Dave. Mcgruder isn't that funny. He's old news!!!!
