The Boondocks will not be renewed for a second season on HBO Max. WarnerMedia said in 2019 that it has greenlit a 24-episode resurrection of the famous Adult Swim cartoon series, which was set to premiere in the autumn of 2020, before the streaming service was even ready. There has been practically little news regarding the series in the two years since that announcement. Until now, that is.
HBO Max has not given a yes to the Boondocks
Tom DuBois voice actor Cedric Yarbrough stated the revival isn’t moving ahead in an interview with the Geekset Podcast, which was picked up by Gizmodo. “I hate to break it, but the programme isn’t coming back right now,” Yarbrough said on the podcast. “They chose to pull the plug on Sony [Pictures Animiation],” says the source. Yarbrough didn’t specify why the firm made that choice, but he did state that the show’s recording sessions had begun. WarnerMedia has been contacted for comment.
Given how much money WarnerMedia has spent to position HBOMax as a destination for adult animation. The fact that we won’t receive two more seasons of The Boondocks is intriguing. The business spent a rumoured $500 million to obtain exclusive US streaming rights to South Park shortly after announcing the show’s comeback. J.J. Abrams has been hired to develop a new animated Batman series for the platform. The Boondocks was planned to be one of the first films to be released as part of that campaign.
