A sequel to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is in the works, sort of

Dr H blog

Entertainment Weekly reports that a sequel to the insanely popular tragicomedy web musical Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is going to happen ... eventually. All that is really holding it up is crowded schedules. Joss Whedon is currently busy with the Avengers 2 and translating the Marvel Comics universe to film. Jed Whedon is busy with Agents of SHEILD and other players are booked up on other sorts of projects.

However it is pretty definite that it will happen eventually. From EW:
Jed Whedon, who wrote the songs for the project, was kind enough to send us a statement: “We know we have spoken publicly about a sequel in the near distance and our passion to create it, and I promise we have not been insincere. Horrible is still one of our favorite creations by humans who were also us. We have many songs written and the plot outlined, but needless to say, we’ve been busy. Joss has had a hectic couple of years and is in the middle of the busiest year of his life, as is Zack and as are we. Also the actors have other things they’re acting in, I think. So the future is uncertain, our passion remains. DH2 will exist, in some format or another, at some point in the future. Unfortunately, the when is still unclear.”

So a sequel is more of a when, than an if. Fans of Dr. Horrible may be impatient but at least they know that it's coming, someday.
