The news of the indefinite hiatus of the Tokyo Revengers manga series with Chapter 248 was first shared by reputable leaker Ryokyuta2089.

According to the leak, a member of the production staff has tested positive for COVID-19, which would result in the planned release of the next chapter being put on hold.

“Ken Wakui [Tokyo Revengers] Infected with the new corona, which complicates production and is suspended, the weekly Shonen Magazine No. 18 is suspended. I wonder if the suspension will be extended… Even if it’s at its peak. Take care of your body now.” – Ryokyutaka2089.

The delay was then official Confirmed from the official Japanese Twitter account for the series, which stated that “the next installment [18] will be suspended”, but the team would “appreciate your understanding”.

“While the report did not specifically state who among the people behind the manga contracted the virus, it did specifically state that the disease made it difficult for production to continue.” – EpicStream.

No news on the new release date of Chapter 248 yet

Unfortunately, the new release date for Tokyo Revengers Chapter 248 has not been confirmed by Kodansha, the distributors, or the associated social media pages for the series.

However, popular Tokyo Revengers leaker “taiyakiboi” recently stated that the series will return from its indefinite hiatus in the next issue of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, due out next week.

“The Tokyo Revengers will go on hiatus because there was a staff member who tested positive for the coronavirus. Chapter 248 will return in issue #19 of Weekly Shonen Magazine and Chapter 247 will be released later on March 23.” — User taiyakiboi, via Twitter.

However, the original leak stated that there were concerns that the “suspension would be extended,” so it’s best to keep checking back for ongoing updates on Chapter 248’s release.
