Togashi Yoshihiro is hard at work when it comes to Hunter x Hunter's return, as the mangaka prepares for an arrival that has been years in the making. With Yoshihiro taking several years off thanks to his health issues, Gon and his fellow hunters are set to make a comeback as a handful of new manga chapters have already been confirmed. Now, it would seem that the manga is about to add some new "hunters" to the creative staff to make sure the upcoming chapters are released smoothly.
The last time that readers were able to dive into a new chapter of Hunter x Hunter was in late 2018, with the Succession Contest Arc still in full swing. With Gon and his friends, along with the Phantom Troupe, being dragged into a struggle for supremacy within a royal family, the Shonen series has once again switched things up when it comes to the wild adventures that the hunters experience regularly. While Togashi hasn't stated when we can expect the Succession Contest to come to an end, or if Hunter x Hunter is headed to its finale, there are more than a few fans that can't wait for the manga's return.
In a new update via his Official Twitter Account, Yoshihiro Togashi took the opportunity to update fans on the production of Chapters 399 and 400, while also revealing that to help with the creation of Hunter x Hunter's manga, more team members will need to be added:

Currently, there has been no word on whether we'll eventually see Hunter x Hunter return with an anime adaptation, as the previous venture to the small screen came to an end years ago from Studio Madhouse. While there is plenty of manga material for the anime to cover following its initial ending, it will be interesting to see if the series will eventually start where it left off or if we'll see another reboot for the Shonen franchise when it comes to its anime adaptation.
Which character are you most excited to see return with Hunter x Hunter's comeback? Do you think the anime adaptation will start where Madhouse left off should it ever be confirmed to return?
