Im not too sure if H*R will ever make a "grand return", but if it does I would expect some jokes about the hiatus, but otherwise normal toons.

I dunno, man. It doesn't look like we're getting a "grand return". Maybe some more holiday 'toons, but that's about it.

Man, it'd be pretty cool though. I remember my first time watching Homestar Runner, I was using a really crappy Windows 95 desktop on an outdated version of Internet Explorer, and lets just say the cartoon and voices were very laggy. Now I use a Windows 8 computer with the latest IE, and I watch the cartoons fast with no lag. If the grand return of Homestar ever happens, I'll be sure to watch at least one SB email / toon on that old computer :D

It's too bad I have started getting interested in Homestar only after the hiatus started...
Man, it would be so awesome if Homestar Runner was an active fandom with a lot of fan-art and remixes and stuff like Touhou, MLP and Homestuck fandoms...

If they actually mention the hiatus, I'll take that as a sign that they intend to do more than 1 cartoon that year.

I think the economy & having a few new mouths to feed had a lot to do with the Chaps splitting up & looking for other means of employment. The show had been in steady decline ever since the housing bubble burst & food & gas prices went through the roof.

Homestar would now be a free-time hobby. So I think that when their kids are older & the economy gets better, the Chaps may once again quit their day jobs & freelance once more. I don't foresee that in the near future though, as politicians on either side & corporations are working hand-in-hand to make the whole world a crap place, just so they can fill their swimming pools with enough money to swim in.

I don't there there will be a return.
An occasional update just for fun, perhaps once ever few years. Otherwise I would say it is dead site.
If the Brothers Chaps actually bothered to keep us informed about this, then I would say they may be interested in having a return. But I expect they just got board with it, and just kinda left it. Perhaps a random toon just when they feel like it for nostalgia.

Whatever updates come, how many, and for whatever reasons will all be much appreciated by me. The world can always use more laughs and The Brothers Chaps are great at creating them.

I assume you've all seen this since it's been mentioned in other threads, but this interview indicates they plan to begin making H*R 'toons more regularly again:
http://jeffrubinjeffrubinshow.com/episo ... t-chapman/

summary: Matt has moved back to the Atlanta area where Mike lives and they've been wanting to get back to creating H*R content for the past couple of years but distance and the day job (they worked on some TV shows, etc) got in the way. Based on the outstanding response received on the April Fool's Day cartoon they are optimistic about producing new content by this Summer or Fall. They expect to upload content both to the website and YouTube. He mentioned the possibility of introducing new elements such as a Strong Bad Twitter account or a Strong Sad Tumblr blog. Matt also offered the caveat of "we don't want to set expectations too high" but did mention that he and Mike discussed an idea for a new Strong Bad Email at length.

According to that interview they've thought about creating a new web design from scratch and preserving the current site as a "museum". I think that would be cool.

Turns out I was wrong. (Definitely not the first time)

There will never be a grand return. The fanbase has dried up and the dream is dead.

4th option. 1-2 toons every month or two. No regular updates.
