‘Boondocks’ back in 2010

Show returns to production after two-year hiatus

After nearly a two-year hiatus, animated series “The Boondocks” is returning for a third season.

According to creator Aaron McGruder’s Twitter feed, the show is currently in production and set to air in early 2010.

No network has been announced, but the Sony Pictures Television-produced skein was most recently seen on Adult Swim.

Based on McGruder’s cartoon strip, “The Boondocks” examines an African-American family who has moved from Chicago to the suburbs outside Washington, D.C., and quickly discovers the challenges of living in a different culture.

Show, which received many favorable reviews, was often criticized for its use of language and racial stereotypes. Fifteen episodes were created for each of the two seasons, with the most recent episode airing in spring 2008.
