Recently the interwebs were set ablaze when it was revealed that Aaron McGruder’s acclaimed animated series The Boondocks season 5 was in production. That bombshell got dropped by series star John Witherspoon, who nonchalantly mentioned his return to voice the character of Grandpa in the new season.
It seems prophetic that The Boondocks should be returning at this time. The show began by taking on the Bush-era it premiered in but was equally unafraid of taking on the Obama era and all of its progressive notions – including the idea of a “post-racial” America. It begs the imagination to wonder what The Boondocks would do with season 5 set in Trump world.
