But later on, it was unveiled that season 4 will be created without the involvement of the creator of the series, the reason was the disagreement over the shoot and production schedule of the series. Thus, the sitcom concluded with 4 seasons.
Later in 2019, Sony Pictures Animation announced the “reimagining” of the television series. A reboot of the series was announced on June 12, 2019, with McGruder and John Witherspoon return before his death on October 29, 2019.

Boondock Season 5: Probable cast and Plot
Since there’s no official release on the storyline, characters, and the actors who’ll be cast in the upcoming season. But we can anticipate the characters from the previous four seasons to reprise their roles. So, let’s recap few characters who’re likely to appear in Boondock Season 5 and who appeared in the previous four seasons.
Huey Freeman voiced by Regina King- He’s a 10-year old boy who’s much more intelligent than children of his age but he’s often underestimated by his brother and grandfather thinking that he’s a fool to have so many dreams which are not generally pursued by the people. He’s an avid promoter of social causes being heavily influenced by the theories of many left-wing social movements and social justice leaders. He’s a great kung-fu fighter who lost only to few combatants. He rarely smiles, unlike other children.
Riley Freeman voiced by Regina King- He’s Huey Freeman’s 8-year old brother who’s an ardent follower of Urban Gangster Rap/Hip Hop, unlike Huey who is derisive towards them. He’s a very naughty and clever kid who maintains devotion towards Gangster Rap. The television series revolves around the mischievous actions of Riley who’s repeatedly warned by his elder brother Huey. His action mainly revolves around his affection and craziness for Gangster Rap. He’s a great street fighter. He also plays basketball.
Robert Jebediah Freeman aka Grandad voiced by John Witherspoon- He’s the grandfather and legal guardian of Riley and Huey. Even though he loves his grandchildren unconditionally, sometimes he seems to be strict and punishes them for their mischievous actions, mainly Riley with Three Stooges- style corporal punishment. He was an ardent civil rights activist during his early days.
As, as we can see all the previous four seasons revolved around these three characters and the social issues raised by them, so we can expect Boondock Season 5 to be on the same track with another social issue and more mischievous actions of Riley and Huey.
