All of us were shocked and disappointed when the beloved satire series Boondocks was cancelled. In the past, the series had a devoted fanbase that was outraged by the choice. In fact, the performance has been sustained by its audience for more than six years. It’s a good thing that Sony Pictures Animation has finally given the green light to Season 5 of Boondocks. The new episodes will be on our screens within the next few weeks. No, I’m not looking forward to it. Ahead of the release date, here’s all you need to know about it.
Millions of people fell in love with The Boondocks as soon as it premiered in 2005. Adapted from Aaron McGruder’s comic strip of the same name, this show was created by him. It’s about a black family seeking to make a home in Woodcrest, a predominantly white neighbourhood. Because of the show’s satirical nature, it quickly became a phenomenon when it was first produced.
Producers keep renewing the show for extra seasons due to its rising popularity. Sony Pictures Animation released four seasons over the course of nearly a decade. McGruder’s announcement that the show had been cancelled left viewers devastated. Fans rallied to try to salvage the animated series after learning of the problem. There were no more Boondocks seasons published despite the controversy.
It’s Official: Season 5 of Boondocks Has Been Renewed!
Fortunately, the much-anticipated sequel to the Boondocks is finally making its way back to our screens. It was announced in June 2019 that Sony Pictures Animation would be rebooting the classic animated sitcom. McGruder was later announced to be returning as executive producer. In addition, John Witherspoon will reprise his role as Robert Freeman in the fifth season of Boondocks.
With just a few months to go, Warner Media’s new streaming service HBO Max announced that it would buy two seasons of the revival in September 2019. The twelve-episode instalments have been eagerly awaited. In order to avoid confusion, the producers have stated that this new series would be a different relaunch. Fans of the original show, on the other hand, see the new season as the fifth.
What’s the Storyline for the New Show?
Season 5 of Boondocks will follow a similar storyline to that of Season 4. In the nice and predominantly white suburb of Maryland, where Uncle Ruckus runs the community government, the Freemans will be the ones to be followed. In the midst of a daily struggle to stay alive, they take up arms against Ruckus’ tyranny. As of now, the reboot series has a compelling storyline. Our hopes are high for the next season to be as successful as the old one.
When Can We Expect the Fifth Season of Boondocks to Be Released?
Soon after it was announced, news of the Boondocks reboot series’ renewal went viral. Fans were thrilled to be able to rewatch the beloved satire sitcom for the first time in decades. HBO Max has purchased two seasons of the show as a bonus. Back then, the creators predicted that the fifth and final season of Boondocks would premiere in 2020.
Boondocks Season 5 was expected to premiere last year, but no new episodes were released. Viewers were disappointed by the delay, but the events of 2020 had led to it. HBO Max will air the new reboot series in 2021, according to a later announcement. The twelve-episode season and a 50-minute special will be released at the same time. This article will be updated with a specific release date as soon as it is available.
