The-Boondocks*Viewers have been patiently waiting for months to hear updates about season 4 of “The Boondocks.”

Adult Swim showcased a graphic promo a while ago that did at least confirm that Huey Freeman and his family would be coming back one day, but there was no release date given.

Well it looks like being impatient is sometimes a virtue; because after an anxious fan told Adult Swim that it should run episodes of “The Boondocks” more often, the network announced the new season would be “coming in January.”

rockmond dunbar*CBS’ “The Mentalist” has expanded its cast by adding onetime “Prison Break” inmate and former BET’s “The Game” actor Rockmond Dunbar as a series regular.

Deadline reports that Dunbar has snagged the role of Dennis Abbott, a FBI Supervisory Agent who doesn’t do nonsense or take well to Patrick Jane’s “charm.”

His character is one of the new characters being thrown in for Season 6 as they prep for two mid-season exits.
