The Boondocks Is Being Rebooted and Huey Has a New Look

Once aired on Adult Swim, “The Boondocks” chronicles the battles of the Freeman family against the evil local government tyrant Uncle Ruckus, who rules fictional Woodcrest County Maryland, with an iron fist.

Sony Pictures Animation announced at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival that they would be bringing back "The Boondocks" in "a complete re-imagining for the modern era" with the show's original creator Aaron McGruder on board.
The animated show premiered on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim in 2005 and ended its run in 2014 after four seasons and 55 episodes. The final season of the show was produced without McGruder.
"The Boondocks" was originally a comic strip written and drawn by McGruder that ran from 1996 to 2006. Seen through the lens of the main character Huey Freeman, the comic strip offered a satirical take on African American culture and politics.
McGruder revived the comic strip earlier this year on Instagram.  it is unknown if the entire original cast will be reprising their roles in the TV reboot.

we now have a first look at a new design of Huey Freeman.

Courtesy of @boondocksbootleg, the preview reveals that the older Freeman brother has been given a more modern design inline with his personality. Huey’s new look sees the return of his signature afro and a fresh outfit comprised of a dual-tone windbreaker, camo pants, and tactical military boots. The preview also offers a teaser of the anime-leaning aesthetic style the reboot is set to feature.

Check out Huey Freeman’s new look below and stay tuned for more details regarding The Boondocks reboot.
