Further research conducted by some fans revealed that Malik used to be described as “ex-member”; however, now it says “vocals.” The list also indicated the reactivation of One Direction’s official website. The list also revealed that One Direction’s Official Facebook account hid, if not deleted, the post of Malik leaving the band.

One netizen also posted a clip of Horan taking a lie detector test during his appearance in James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke.” Corden asked the One Direction member if a reunion would happen and he said yes.

Payne previously told The Sun how good it felt that they were connecting together again. Also, he said—at that time— that he wasn’t sure what he was allowed to say but there were a couple of different things they were working on to try and make it happen, Metro UK reported.

One Direction announced that the group would go on an indefinite hiatus in August 2015. It broke the hearts of not just thousands but millions of 1D fans and followers. There were different sources claiming that the hiatus needed to happen because the members wanted to work on individual projects, Nicki Swift reported.

There was not any reported official confirmation but One Direction fans all over the world waited for the reunion to happen. 1D followers, over the years, remained hopeful and with the global health crisis currently happening, their favorite group reuniting somehow provides a glimmer of hope to their wary hearts.
