Ed Loves Bacon - Boondocks finally confirmed for third season on Adult Swim

On Christmas Eve, The Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder announced that he has confirmed an airdate for his animated series to return to Adult Swim on Cartoon Network for its third season. The popular show has been on hiatus for over two years. McGruder posted the following message on Twitter Thursday afternoon:

Finally got an airdate for Season 3. Not sure if I'm allowed to put it out yet, so I'll just say you got about three months! Merry Xmas!!

The Boondocks follows the misadventures of Huey Freeman (voiced by Regina King) his younger brother Riley (also voiced by Regina King) and grandfather Robert (John Witherspoon), a dysfunctional black family who move from urban Chicago to the upscale suburban neighborhood of Woodcrest, Maryland outside of Washington D.C. The controversial series has been nominated several awards and won the coveted Peabody Award for the episode "The Return of The King", an alternate reality episode where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr awakens from a coma after a failed assassination attempt to discover the new world and the corruption of his efforts for civil rights.
