I wouldn't necessarily bet the farm though. Jump tends to only publish works they feel will do well, hence the rigorous serialisation process and junk, yeah? One wonders if there's some sort of lull going on that resulted in this continued lack of new titles. Not that I'm complaining, mind, as it bodes well for the length of ailing serials, but it'd be sad if this meant the overall size of the mag suffered as a long-term result down the line.
I always thought Jump's business strategy was "throw shit against the wall and see what sticks".

Konomi Takeshi (Prince of Tennis) will apparently come back to WSJ this year
I would love for Prince of Tennis to continue in WSJ again, Shin Prince of Tennis is reaaallllyyyyy slow in SQ.
It's kinda like what happened with Hungry Joker or Houkago Idol/Himedol, all had good oneshots and the first few chapters were good enough for the editors to serialize them but they couldn't live to the expectations
I would have JUMP/Konomi if he works for WSJ and is not Prince of Tennis, making another manga would just take time from Shin Puri, as it is right now is super slow already, I just think Konomi just needs to continue what he is doing, Price of Tennis is after all incredibly succesful.
