Unfortunately, it is yet unknown when the new volume will be released globally.
The Hunter x Hunter manga has not seen a new chapter since its hiatus in November 2018. Yoshihiro Togashio, the writer, frequently takes breaks from his work due to serious health concerns.
However, he started updating his Twitter account with work-related information back in May. His tweets consist of illustrations and sketches, though the majority of them did not tell anything about the future volume.

Since the beginning of the manga, it has inspired the making of two anime films, two anime television series and many original video animation (OVA) titles.
The second anime adaptation premiered from 2011 to 2014 and for 148 episodes. The 2011 anime adaptation tells the story from the beginning.
