According to Fortnite's trello, Epic Games is preparing to bring grenades back to the free-to-play PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile battle royale game via its next update. At the moment of publishing, it's unclear when the game's next update will go live, but it will presumably happen sooner rather than later.
As you may remember, Grenades were removed from Fortnite on March 31 due to players exploiting the weapon, which was completely disrupting meta. For now, it's unclear if Epic Games is simply going to remedy the exploit -- which allowed players to throw multiple grenades at once -- or if it's also going to nerf the weapon as well.
Since the weapon was removed, Epic Games hasn't provided any update on Grenades, which has lead many players to think the weapon had been permanently vaulted, but this isn't the case.

As you would expect, Fortnite fans aren't excited to see that Grenades may be coming back to the game soon:
