"The Boondocks" Returns to Adult Swim Minus Creator Aaron McGruder
The Boondocks will return to the air on Adult Swim for its fourth season on April 21, 2014, at 10:30 PM (ET/PT), but it will do so without the participation of Aaron McGruder, who created the original comic strip the show is based on and was involved in the first three seasons of the show. The official press release from Sony Pictures Televsion stated that “a mutually agreeable production schedule could not be determined” with McGruder.
On the Facebook page for McGruder’s new live-action show Black Jesus (which will also air on Adult Swim), McGruder stated in a post on March 16, 2014, that, “Just found out someone has hijacked THE BOONDOCKS Facebook page. This was done without my permission and I have absolutely no control over the content being posted as of Friday, March 14.” A follow-up post on March 20 indicates that the page is still under someone else’s control, with no updates since.
