Ahead of the fourth season premiere, we look back at the greatest episodes from the first three seasons of “The Boondocks.”
Usually when a TV series hasn’t had a new episode in almost four years it means that it’s been canceled. But Adult Swim’s “The Boondocks” will be back for its fourth and final season beginning tonight.
“The Boondocks” began as a comic strip created by Aaron McGruder that followed the Freeman family after they moved into a largely white neighborhood in Chicago. McGruder used the strip to satirically comment on class schisms. racial stereotypes, politics and pop culture. “The Boondocks” earned a following and it eventually landed on TV at Adult Swim in 2005.
For the final season, McGruder was apparently not involved in any of the creative decisions. It remains to be seen if the series can maintain McGruder’s signature style. But before the new season begins, we’ve assembled a list of the greatest episodes of “The Boondocks” from the first three seasons.
