The manga started its hiatus back in August 2014, and will be resuming with the “Dark Continent Arc.” Not much details have been revealed about the return, however, they will be revealed by Weekly Shounen Jump!’s issue #16, which is due out on March 19, 2016.
When the new hiatus was first announced, the reason cited was that the manga author was experiencing severe back pains and that the hiatus will only last 2 weeks. However, a week later, Jump! announced that the hiatus will last longer because Togashi was still experiencing back pains, though they did say that he is already receiving medication. After some time, the manga’s return to last “indefinitely,” which fans kinda expected as Yoshihiro Togashi is known for his long and frequent hiatuses which often last for more years.
