Aaron McGruder Returns: First Trailer for Black Jesus is Here
Aaron McGruder’s return to television is quickly approaching, with Black Jesus premiering on Adult Swim August 7th at 11PM EST.
During the reveal that McGruder would not be involved with The Boondocks Season 4, it was also announced that Adult Swim picked up his pilot for Black Jesus. What wasn’t known at the time if this would be a continuation of his 2005 internet series Black Jesus or a new run entirely. With this new trailer it appears to be a mixture of both, with Gerald ‘Slink’ Johnson reprising his role as McGruder’s Jesus and Boondocks alum, John Witherspoon and Charles Murphy in major supporting roles. The trailer – funny and surprisingly action packed – is filled more familiar faces like Angela Gibbs, Kali Hawk, Antwon Tanner and a few more.
The Boondocks season 4 was The Boondocks season 4. If Black Jesus is anything like the original shorts, expect with a bigger budget and cast – fans of McGruder’s commentary and wit will have plenty to look forward to come August 7th.
