HBO Max, a new streaming service from WarnerMedia, will be launching on May 27, and will include a roster of new original series and movies, as well as old series and movies. Included in that will be all 55 episodes of the original Boondocks show that made its debut on Adult Swim in 2005, according to TV Guide.

Prior to its move to HBO Max the series was on Hulu, but a search for it on the streaming service shows that it’s no longer on there.

As for the new Boondocks series that’s also supposed to pop up on HBO Max, that won’t be dropping until fall of this year. The two-season, 24-episode show ihas been described as a re-imagining of the original series. Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder said the following about the new series last year: “There’s a unique opportunity to revisit the world of The Boondocks and do it over again for today. It’s crazy how different the times we live in are now – both politically and culturally – more than a decade past the original series and two decades past the original newspaper comic. There’s a lot to say and it should be fun.”

It’s unknown if John Witherspoon, the voice behind the series’ beloved Robert “Grandad” Freeman, had already recorded parts for the forthcoming series or not prior to his death.
