Aaron McGruder’s Peabody Award-winning series “The Boondocks” -- based upon the comic strip of the same name -- returns Sunday night at 11:30 p.m. on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim after a two-year hiatus.

Here’s an exclusive clip from an upcoming episode of the animated series, which begins its third season.

Huey Freeman, voiced by Regina King (“Southland”), is the main character and principal narrator of the animated series. A politically astute 10-year-old boy, he regularly mulls over current events and the adversity faced by African Americans.

Guest voices this season include: Bill Maher (“Real Time With Bill Maher”), Werner Herzog (“Grizzly Man”), Ed Asner (“Mary Tyler Moore Show”), Billy Dee Williams (“Star Wars”), Star Jones (“The View”), Charlie Murphy (“Chappelle’s Show”) and Marion Ross (“Happy Days”).
