Something About The Boondocks Series-

The Boondocks is a cartoon Network famous American animated drama which is created by Aaron McGruder for the very time in 2005. The cartoon drama was debut on the Global cartoon Channel, Cartoon Network.  The show is inspired by a comic book that has the same name, The Boondocks.

The series takes place in the life of a black family… The drama shows a number of things in it like the different lifestyles, social classes, philosophy, literature, and more. The concept behind the show is to overcome racialization.

 The show takes a new turn, on June 23, 2014,  show releases its last episode of forth installment.

Now the officials has given  fifty-five episodes, and do you know what is the appalling part about the fourth season? The Boondocks Season 4 has no role of McGruder in it.

Since 2014, the followers believed that there be a “Boondocks Season 5” for sure, but will it?

Will There Be The Boondocks Season 5?

Of-course the show is going to be a flashback on our screen. At first, it is believed that the Boondocks Season 5 would have chances to be out in 2022 but later due to the attack of Covid-19 delay occur in the series.

However there be a season five for sure confirmed by the creators via an Instagram post, so don’t believe in the fake rumors about the cancellation of Boondocks.

McGruder left the show when cartoon Network decided to debut the show without McGruder’s concern or involvement in it.

“There’s a unique opportunity to revisit the world of The Boondocks and do it over again for today. It’s crazy how different the times we live in are now – both politically and culturally – more than a decade past the original series and two decades past the original newspaper comic. There’s a lot to say and it should be fun,” McGruder said.

There are chances that the show would flash on our screen in 2022 when everything remains under the control, hopefully.

The Boondocks Season 5- Characters!

The Boondocks has a few main characters that remain there in each season, let’s talk about them one by one.

He is the main lead of the story. Freeman is only ten years old despite his age he is very intelligent and a wise guy. He used to read a number of knowledgeable materials related to a number of issues and matters.

Although the little is obsessed with the social movement and readers, he somehow believed that he also has to do something similar like them in order to stop racial discrimination.

However, his brother and grandfather never believed him, they always think that he can’t do anything. Both of them show rude behavior towards freeman.

  • Riley Freeman (voiced by Regina King)-

He is the younger brother of Riley, he is just eight years old. He is a naughty kid who used to do tons of mischievous things, rather than the title-tattle he also obeys the Urban Gangster Rap/Hip Hop. The little shows an optimistic behavior towards the group.

Huey always tries to take his brother on a good track rather than following a group that always thinks about bad consequences but Riley used to neglect the talks of Huey. Half of the story shows the half-minded acts of Riley, how he gets into trouble every time because of his bad choice of group. Riely also used to street fighting and also smokes cigarettes when no one is in the house.

  • Robert Jebediah “Grandad” Freeman (voiced by John Witherspoon)

Another lead figure of the story is Robert Jebediah, the Grandfather of the little two. He is the guardian of Huey and Riley in a judicial manner. Despite loving both of them sometimes he shows aggressive behavior towards them, this is because of the mischievous acts.

Robert’s personality is shown somehow differently in fact Robert is also unaware of his disposition and character.

But this time the voice of Robert Jebediah would not be given by Witherspoon because he died in 2019, after giving voices of a freeman in four seasons, so let’s wait and see who will take place as the “Grandad’s” voice in the “Boondocks Season 5.”

Talking about the plot, the story has chances to start from where it ends in the fourth episode, or maybe a whole new plot will be introduced this time, what do you think? Share your audits with us in our comment section.
