Bad News, Everybody.
It was announced earlier in July that SU would return to new regular weekly episodes starting this Thursday (August 6th), which went as far as episodes being listed on Zap2It and other sources. Last Friday the Crewniverse announced that plans had changed and the show will not return until September. So the SU summer hiatus continues until further notice.
On the plus side Wander Over Yonder returned tonight with Season 2, along with a fresh episode of Gravity Falls.

Freshly announced via the Steven Crewniverse Tumblr and staffers, Steven Universe will return with new episodes starting June 15th and will be kicked off with another #StevenBomb marathon that will last the week. More details to come.
Also on June 15th, Star vs The Forces of Evil shall return with two new episodes, Mewberty & Pixtopia.
As for Gravity Falls, July…ish seems to be the answer.
It’s gonna get a little weird, gonna get a little wild on Disney XD come March 30th. That’s when Star vs. the Forces of Evil returns with brand new episodes on Disney XD according to Nick and More and a Disney press release. However, if you do not wish to wait for March 30th, a pair of new episodes will be made available to verified users of WatchDisneyXD.com, the Disney XD app, and Disney XD on Demand on February 23rd.
Star will then join the Disney XD lineup at 8pm ET/7pm CT with a replay of the opening episodes (“Star Comes to Earth”/“Party with a Pony”) followed by a brand new pair of episodes. The show will apparently follow a 2 x 11 format meaning a pair of 11-minute episodes per show.
Star’s debut on Disney Channel on January 18th drew an estimated 2.325 million viewers. It did receive strong lead-ins from the two shows preceding it on that Sunday night: Austin and Ally (3.076M) and K.C. Undercover (3.509M).
Star Wars: Rebels has been ranging 500K-700K viewers on Disney XD over the last nine episodes. Gravity Falls has been ranging roughly 800K-1.1M per episode. Somewhere in between could be deemed very good numbers for Star when it comes to Disney XD starting on March 30th. We’ll see what the numbers are then.
