Dragon Ball Super to Return With New Chapters Soon

Dragon Ball Super has been in the middle of a hiatus for the last few months as the manga prepared for its next major arc, and now the wait will soon be over as the series has officially set a return date for its next wave of chapters! The Granolah the Survivor arc came to an end earlier this Summer with some big promises for the future of the series, and one thing that fans had noted from earlier in the year was the teased that not only would the Granolah arc end in 2022, but we would get to see the next new arc kick in this year as well.

The hiatus continuing on for so long started to add some doubt to this idea, but now it can all be put to bed! The official website for Dragon Ball Super's manga has officially announced that the series will be coming back from hiatus with Chapter 88 of the series on December 21st in Japan (and December 20th for the rest of the world, most likely). This will kick off the next major arc of the series.

What's Next for Dragon Ball Super's Manga

Chapter 87 of Dragon Ball Super officially brought the Granolah the Survivor arc to an end with the reveal that Frieza has likely become the strongest warrior in the universe. Fans were then left on one of the biggest cliffhangers for the series as a whole following this reveal, and that was made even tougher as the manga went on hiatus for the next few months in order to get ready for the next step. But that next arc might be a surprise.

According to the tease for Dragon Ball Super's next arc, things will be focused on Goten and Trunks for a while. That raises all sorts of questions not only about whether this will potentially connect to Goku and Vegeta's fight against Frieza, but if it could also incorporate the events of the recent Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero feature film that released across the world earlier this year.
