The Boondocks cartoon

Aaron McGruder, the creator of hit cartoon The Boondocks announced on Facebook that he would not be returning for the fourth season of the show.

“As the world now knows, The Boondocks will be returning for a fourth season, but I will not be returning with it. I’d like to extend my gratitude to Sony and Adult Swim for three great seasons.” Arron wrote on the Facebook page of a new show he’s working on called Black Jesus.

Sony also released a statement in a press release saying “This season was produced without the involvement of Aaron McGruder, when a mutually agreeable production schedule could not be determined.”

McGruder created The Boondocks two decades ago in college, and worked on the comic daily for six years.

“The Boondocks pretty much represents my life’s work to this point. Huey, Riley, and Granddad are not just property to me. They are my fictional blood relatives. Nothing is more painful than to leave them behind.”

Black Jesus will be the next chapter in his life he works on and is an upcoming Adult Swim show.
