According to an exclusive report from JoyNews24, the seven-piece act is set to return as an entire group next month as they are currently finalizing their album, citing anonymous industry sources.
While the members are yet to issue an official confirmation, tweets from Bambam and Mark Tuan following the news seem to be enough for the fandom.

GOT7 currently stands on top of Philippine Twitter and second worldwide with over 720,000 tweets as of writing.
Ahgases, the group’s fans, quickly rejoiced and expressed their excitement over what they say is a comeback long overdue, with the group’s last project “ENCORE” released over a year ago.
Saying this carefully since I don’t have knowledge of the whole industry but I think #GOT7 may be the first group to comeback officially this quickly with all members under separate agencies and no one under the original agency..
my trailblazer seven 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚

The fandom has been playing pursuit since GOT7 made the big move to leave JYP Entertainment in January 2021. In a reunion via Instagram Live early this year to celebrate the group’s eighth anniversary in the industry, Jinyoung promised that they would return.
Mark’s return to South Korea last March, along with Bambam dropping various hints during his solo activities, further convinced fans that the septet is getting ready for a comeback.
K-pop fans have praised the group for epitomizing its “seven or never” mantra, with all members choosing to leave their former company altogether. Despite signing with different labels, they promised to stay as a group and make time for their much-anticipated revival.
It takes a lot for a K-pop group to survive the seven-year curse. But for #GOT7, who chose to leave its former label altogether, it’s always been seven or never.
Let’s celebrate GOT7’s first year of freedom! #GOT7_FOR8VER 💚

Since the group’s departure from their previous label, the members have been keeping busy with their solo careers.
If the report holds true, it will mark an end to the globally revered group’s absence that has stretched for over a year, with its last full studio album “Breath of Love: Last Piece” released in November 2020.
A year after freedom, GOT7 flies even higher
