I hope we don't return. The original Innistrad block was iconic and powerful and now the whole plane and the lore of the place has been ruined, so there's no need to make it even worse than it is right now.
In fact, I hope they don't have us return to any of the older planes. Just give us new planes like Ixalan, where you can just mash a bunch of random, disparate stuff together that people have been wanting.
The original block is by far my favorite in the history of the game, as someone that grew up on horror (and has an unhealthy love of werewolves). Avacyn Restored was...a disappointing end to it and while I liked a lot of Shadows and even to an extent Eldritch Moon, it wasn't a direction I was especially happy with (even as a fan of Lovecraft and, well, Bloodborne which is basically what that block became). With Avacyn gone, I am especially curious as to what the plane looks like. And hopefully Emmy stays locked up for the block.
Maro has talked about the idea of using other horror genres (such as j-horror), and we know there are other continents with horrors that are not seen on the part of Innistrad we have seen, so it would be fun to see and help expand up Innistrad flavor by mixing other kinds of horrors, while keeping the core gothic tone. story wise, with Avacyn gone and Emrakul in the moon shifting the tides, travel could be opened up introducing new horror and possible new means of fighting the horrors.
