The band first came together under the guidance of Simon Cowell and the British version of "The X Factor" in the summer of 2010, which means there's a big anniversary coming up for the group. And even though they've been focusing on their solo careers since 2016 (even longer for Zayn), that doesn't mean they don't want to mark such a momentous occasion.
At least that's what Liam suggested to The Sun in a new interview on Thursday.
"We've got a ten-year anniversary coming up so we've all been speaking together a lot over the last few weeks which has been really nice," he said. But it's been more than just nostalgia and catching up for the boys. "There's a number of different things that we are all working on to try and make happen and people are forwarding emails around."
Admitting that he wasn't really sure what he was allowed to say, Liam nevertheless said just enough to spark the flames of enthusiasm among the group's still massive fanbase. According to The Daily Mail, he went so far as to promise fans "a number of different things" from the group.
He also wasn't clear on whether all five members would be coming together. Zayn famously left the band in 2015, a full year before the others put it officially in hiatus.
As the speculation begins as to whether fans can expect new music, a documentary with unreleased footage, a reunion special or even a live event with the boys performing both group and solo work (maybe the long-awaited "Infinity" video?), there's "One Thing" Directioners do know.
They'd take even "The Little Things," because anything "More Than This" to celebrate the band's "History" would be just "Perfect." After all, the story of their life from while they were young is great, but "One Way or Another," it's anything new from the group that would instantly be dubbed the all-new "Best Song Ever."
In the meantime, Directioners are having as much fun geeking out over the band now in anticipation as they have for the past decade, getting #OneDirection2020 trending on Twitter:
comeback or not, this reunion means a lot to me. It's gonna be huge. I don't care if they want to end the hiatus or not all I want is to see them back together on one stage again. I want to relive the MEMORIES we made with them in those five YEARS #OneDirection2020 pic.twitter.com/A0tybwOGA3
