According to reports, an exact release date was not specified and only stated “later in 2021,” meaning it could see another postponement if needed. A reason behind the delay was not given.
HBO Max ordered 24 episodes across two seasons in June 2019, with the episodes originally scheduled to premiere by Fall 2020. A “complete re-imagining” of the series “for the modern era,” the reboot will feature creator Aaron McGruder, who left the original show before its fourth and final season, as the showrunner. A 50-minute special is also in the works.
“There’s a unique opportunity to revisit the world of The Boondocks and do it over again for today,” McGruder previously said. “It’s crazy how different the times we live in are now – both politically and culturally – more than a decade past the original series and two decades past the original newspaper comic. There’s a lot to say and it should be fun.”
Stay tuned for an official release date and trailer.
