According to this report on Red Orbit, new episodes of Aaron McGruder’s Boondocks television show are being delayed until March 2007. The Cartoon Network has asked for five more episodes.
Our production schedule is really, really long, said show creator Aaron McGruder. We’re halfway through the writing and just getting under way with the animation.
While Aaron never gave specific reasons for the hiatus from the comic strip other than to recharge his batteries, many speculate that the time off was to concentrate on the show and even perhaps a movie. Some cartoonist on other chat/bulletin boards have even speculated that Aaron will not be coming back at all. If he has five more shows to write – will this affect his return from sabbatical which ends in October?
