Four years after releasing its last chapter, Yoshihiro Togashi, the creator of the manga Hunter x Hunter, has announced that he’s once again working on the series.
Published in the manga anthology Weekly Shōnen Jump beginning in 1998, the series follows a boy named Gon Freecss, who becomes a Hunter in order to track down his missing father. Along the way, he must defeat fantastical creatures and specially-abled humans.
When the manga was last published in 2018, Togashi was on chapter 390 and reportedly went on hiatus due to struggles with chronic pain. The creator announced his return on Twitter, sharing that four more chapters of Hunter x Hunter are currently in the works. The tweet has already amassed over one million likes.

A second, produced by animation studio Madhouse, ran 148 episodes and two films from 2011 and 2014 and is available to watch on Netflix now.
Togashi has yet to release any additional details about the forthcoming Hunter x Hunter installments but fans should stay tuned for future updates.
