Season 4

The new season finds Huey, Riley and Granddad encountering a roster of characters, both new and familiar, in uproarious situations, including Granddad's dating a long lost Kardashian sister; their friend Tom DuBois acting as R&B bad boy "Pretty Boy Flizzy's" lawyer in exchange for relationship advice; Granddad's love affair with Siri on his new iPhone; and the Freemans' foray into the lethal black market of the hair-care industry à la Breaking Bad.

Throughout the final season, an eclectic mix of hip-hop artists, actors, comedians and media personalities voice guest characters on the series, including Jenifer Lewis, Dennis Haysbert, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Ghostface Killah, CeeLo, Lil Wayne, Donald Faison, Aisha Tyler, Kym Whitley, Tichina Arnold, Mo'Nique, Marion Ross, Tavis Smiley, Terry Crews, Bill Duke, and Cedric the Entertainer.

Reprising their guest roles from last season are Xzibit, Charlie Murphy, MTV's Sway and Katt Williams, among others.

In The Boondocks, Robert "Granddad" Freeman (John Witherspoon) is the cantankerous legal guardian of his rambunctious grandkids Huey and Riley (Regina King) and has moved them from the south side of Chicago to the quiet and safety of "The Boondocks" (in this case, suburban Woodcrest), hoping that he can ignore them altogether and enjoy the golden years of his life in peace.

But Huey, a 10-year-old left wing revolutionary, is determined not to enjoy the affluence of suburbia. This attitude is seconded by his 8-year-old brother, Riley, a proud product of contemporary rap culture. Although they torture each other and provoke the neighbourhood, they are no match for Granddad, who is eccentric even by "crazy-ass-old-black-man" standards.

Gary Anthony Williams as Uncle Ruckus, Gabby Soleil as Jazmine Dubois and Jill Talley as Sarah Dubois round out the cast, with Cedric Yarbrough returning as the voice of fan favourite Colonel H. Stinkmeaner in addition to Tom Dubois.

The series is produced by Rebel Base in association with Sony Pictures Television.

The Comic Strip

McGruder first brought Huey and Riley Freeman to life in April 1999. The Boondocks comic strip was published in over 150 newspapers, making it the second largest launch for a strip ever.

Within its first few months in print, The Boondocks quickly made its way into 200 publications, and at its peak the groundbreaking strip was read in more than 300 newspapers across America.

Through his adolescent characters, McGruder tackled topics such as race relations, interracial marriage, bi-racial identity and juvenile delinquency, in addition to political happenings and current events.

Not surprisingly, it's McGruder's edgy take on these issues that often drew criticism and even resulted in the strip being pulled from newspapers or moved to their op-ed pages.
