Why a 1D Reunion Could Be Coming

The world-famous band, One Direction, went on a hiatus in January 2016 and claimed to be back in eighteen months. It’s been four years now and fans are growing restless. The band will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary this summer on July 23rd, and fans are convinced the members will finally reunite. While it sounded crazy at first, especially during this pandemic, here’s why it’s likely to happen.
