The Hunter x Hunter manga is finally returning in November following a four year hiatus from author Yoshihiro Togashi.
As reported by Polygon, the Shonen Jump Twitter account confirmed (below) that the next volume of Hunter x Hunter will be released in Japan on November 4. The previous volume was released on October 4, 2018, as Togashi was forced to stop producing his long-running series due to health issues.

There wasn’t any confirmation of an English release date for the volume, but the last volume arrived in the U.S. around ten months after it was released in Japan, meaning it could still be some time before American fans can get their hands on the new chapters.
Hunter x Hunter has been forced in and out of hiatus since 2006 as a result of a debilitating back problem suffered by Togashi. After a long period without any updates, the author took to Twitter in May to announce that he was once again working on the series.
Despite starting in 1998, Hunter x Hunter has appeared in fewer and fewer issues of Shonen Jump over the years, producing 380 chapters in total so far. In comparison, Naruto began in 1999 and ended in 2014, producing 700 chapters.
