The Boondocks returns to TV but without Aaron McGruder

The Daily Beast is reporting that Aaron McGruder’s The Boondocks will be returning to television after a four year hiatus – but the return is without Aaron who has developed another live-action show called Black Jesus.

As the world now knows, The Boondocks will be returning for a fourth season, but I will not be returning with it. I?d like to extend my gratitude to Sony and Adult Swim for three great seasons.

I created The Boondocks two decades ago in college, did the daily comic for six years, and was showrunner on the animated series for the first three seasons. The Boondocks pretty much represents my life?s work to this point. Huey, Riley, and Granddad are not just property to me. They are my fictional blood relatives. Nothing is more painful than to leave them behind.

As for me, I?m finally putting a life of controversy and troublemaking behind me with my upcoming Adult Swim show, BLACK JESUS.
