Deadline is reporting that HBO Max has given a two-season, 24-episode order to a reimagining of the animated series The Boondocks, from creator Aaron McGruder and Sony Pictures Animation and yes, this means the show’s original creator Aaron McGruder is on board.
The new Boondocks will launch in fall 2020 with a 50-minute special. All 55 episodes of the original The Boondocks series will also be available on WarnerMedia direct-to-consumer platform at launch.
The Boondocks revival was taken out to the marketplace in late spring and was confirmed by Sony Pictures Animation at the Annecy festival in June. HBO Max immediately emerged as the most likely home for the new series because of WarnerMedia’s history with the franchise.
