Bad news for Jujutsu Kaisen fans! Not only will the anime end today but the manga is also said to go on a 3-Week hiatus and will return only on Jan 22!
The leaks for Chapter 247 dropped on Dec 27 but according to @JJK_Mya on Twitter, these leaks came in early, and the chapter will officially release in Weekly Shonen Jump issue #6/7, Viz and Mangaplus on Jan 8, 2024.
Then WSJ magazine itself (not Akutami) will be on a break between Jan 9-21 and Chapter 248 will officially drop in WSJ Issue #8 on Jan 22. However, the leaks for that chapter will drop on Jan 17, so that means no new JJK content for 3 weeks!
The early leaks has messed up the timings of break so lemme clear it up,
NEXT JJK CHAP LEAKS #JJK248 WILL ARRIVE ON 17 JANUARY, 2024!
So no new JJK manga content for 3 weeks!

With Season 2 of the anime also ending on Dec 28 (which is today), JJK fans wasted no time expressing their sadness for the upcoming drought of new content.
About Jujutsu Kaisen:
Jujutsu Kaisen is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump since March 2018, with its chapters collected and published in 25 tankōbon volumes as of December 2023.
Studio MAPPA brought the world of JJK into anime by airing 24 episodes of season 1 from October 2020 to March 2021 and a 2nd season, that premiered in July 2023.
Crunchyroll describes the overall plot of Jujutsu Kaisen as:
Yuji Itadori is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by curses, he eats the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, taking the curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with Ryomen Sukuna.
Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the curses… and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a curse to exorcise a curse, a life from which he could never turn back.
