Ever since they announced they were taking an indefinite hiatus in 2015, fans of One Direction have been patiently waiting for the band to return. Well, get ready, people, because the group’s website was just updated, and some people are convinced that it means a reunion is officially in the works!
Get this — at the bottom of the page in the copyright section, the website now reads, “2020 Sony Music Entertainment UK LTD.”
Now, some fans have claimed that the website updates every year, while others have theorized that the change means the guys have something up their sleeves. Not to mention that the exciting update comes just weeks after Liam Payne revealed that fans may be getting a new documentary about the band!
The “Strip That Down” crooner recently headed to Dubai to perform some of the hits from his new album, LP1. When City Times asked him if he remembered the last time he visited the country with his bandmates, he explained, “It’s hard for me to remember specific gigs because it was a blur of planes and sound checks and screams. I think we filmed that show and it will be part of a documentary around an anniversary.”
OMG. For those who forgot, the group (which also consisted of Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik) was put together by Simon Cowell on July 23, 2010, after they all auditioned on The X Factor as solo artists. That means that its almost been 10 years since the brand was formed, and some fans quickly started to speculate that the upcoming 10th anniversary is what Liam was referring to.
Since they decided to go their separate ways, there’s not a day that’s gone by that fans haven’t longed for a comeback. But the guys have all been pretty busy doing their own things. Harry acted in a movie, Dunkirk, released two solo albums and embarked on a world tour. Louis’ debut album, Walls, will hit stands on January 31, 2020, plus, he was also a judge on The X Factor. Liam became a dad and released an album full of bops on December 6, 2019. And Niall dropped his own solo album and is currently gearing up to release his second!
But even though they’ve accomplished so much on their own, the guys have continuously confirmed that the band will get back together one day. J-14 went ahead and rounded up everything the boys have ever said about the upcoming reunion. so get excited!
