No Aaron McGruder for Boondocks Return

Aaron McGruder

With McGruder out, will The Boondocks lose its edge?

"The Boondocks," the edgy animated series based on Aaron McGruder's comic strip about 10-year-old Black militant Huey Freeman and his gangsta-wanna-be younger brother Riley living in the suburbs with their grandfather, is returning April 21 for a fourth and final season on Adult Swim.

However, there's a catch. McGruder, who created the series and was its key creative force, is not along for the ride.
