Final season of Aaron McGruder’s “The Boondocks” returns on May 2

Fans of “The Boondocks” series were left scratching their heads when it went off the air in back in 2008 with no sign of returning.  I’ve been wondering about creator Aaron McGruder‘s take through the satirical animation on events since then such as Obama being elected President and the death of Michael Jackson.  I’ve been following Aaron McGruder on Twitter, and he has been promising that “The Boondocks” would return.  Hold onto your hats for the return of “The Boondocks” season 3 on May 2, 2010 at 11:30 PM EST during the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.  Aaron McGruder is declaring this the final season for “The Boondocks.”

Here’s the season 3 trailer put out by Adult Swim…

Here’s a little background about the show…

The Boondocks began its life as a comic strip in The Diamondback, the student newspaper at McGruder’s alma mater, University of Maryland, College Park. The strip later found its way into The Source magazine. Following these runs, McGruder began simultaneously pitching The Boondocks both as a syndicated comic strip and as an animated television series. The former goal was met first, and The Boondocks debuted in newspapers in April 1999. (source: wikipedia)

The Boondocks takes place in the fictional suburb of Woodcrest, where the Freeman family settle after recently moving from the South-side of Chicago. The family consists of Huey, the intellectual, Riley, who desperatly wants to be the gangster rappers he idolizes, and Granddad, who is looking for love in his old age.
