The Freemans are coming back! Sony Pictures Animation announced that they are bringing back the early-2000s classic, The Boondocks. The animated series was written and drawn by Aaron McGruder, premiered on Adult Swim back in 2005 and aired its final episode in 2014 after four seasons.

Here is what we know about The Boondocks reboot so far:

- It will be "a complete re-imagining for the modern era". Per Sony Picture's statement, "[The reboot] chronicles the adventures of the Freeman family against the evil local government tyrant Uncle Ruckus, who rules fictional Woodcrest County, Maryland with an iron fist." 

- The show’s original creator Aaron McGruder is on board

- The reboot will premiere in 2020

- It is unknown if the entire original voice cast will reprise their roles. It's unclear if Regina King, who voiced Huey and Riley Freeman, will return considering her recent Oscars win and multi-year first look deal with Netflix

- John Witherspoon hinted that he would reprise the role of Grandad in a recent interview with Joe Rogan

 

Back in February, radio host Charlamagne Tha God gave us a glimpse of what the re-imagined series would look like (with McGruder's blessing) via his Instagram page. Check out the cartoon strips he shared below.
