Plot Synopsis

Granddad is the cantankerous legal guardian of his rambunctious grandkids, Huey and Riley, and he has moved them from the south side of Chicago to the quiet and safety of "The Boondocks" (in this case, suburban Woodcrest), hoping that he can ignore them altogether and enjoy the golden years of his life in peace. But Huey, a 10-year-old left-wing revolutionary, is determined not to enjoy the affluence of suburbia. This attitude is seconded by his 8-year-old brother, Riley, a proud product of contemporary rap culture. Although they torture each other and provoke the neighborhood, they are no match for Granddad, who is eccentric even by his "crazy-ass-old-black-man" standards.
THE BOONDOCKS returned for its fourth and final season on Monday, April 21, 2014 at 10:30pm ET/PT on Adult Swim. In Season 4, Huey, Riley and Granddad encounter more outrageous situtations, including Granddad's dating a long lost Kardashian sister; their friend Tom DuBois acting as R&B bad boy Pretty Boy Flizzy's lawyer in exchange for relationship advice; Granddad's love affair with Siri on his new iPhone; and the Freemans' foray into the lethal black market of the hair-care industry a la BREAKING BAD. Season 4 featured guest voices of stars like Xzibit, Charlie Murphy, Sway, Katt Williams, Jenifer Lewis, Dennis Haysbert, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Ghostface Killah, CeeLo, Lil Wayne, Donald Faison, Aisha Tyler, Kym Whitley, Tichina Arnold, Mo'Nique, Marion Ross, Tavis Smiley, Terry Crews, Bill Duke, and Cedric the Entertainer.
