Just when you thought the days of One Direction are getting numbered, think again. The boys opened up about their 2016 break in a new interview, and they were adamant in promising they will be returning!
On the heels of their emotional last show before taking an extended hiatus next year, One Direction has already reassured fans that it wasn’t the last time Directioners will see them on stage together. In a new interview, the lads discussed their rocky past year and the future of the group, and it certainly sounds like fans have nothing to worry about. 1D says this is not the end!
Liam added that the tough times they have faced as a group this year, from Zayn Malik leaving in March to the mysterious cancellation of a gig in Belfast, have actually brought them even closer. This only increases their motivation to reunite after their break! “I like that quote about teabags and hot water,” he told the outlet. “You can only test how strong you are when you get put in hot water. We’ve been tested, but it’s actually made us stronger. We’ve actually taken a lot of strength from our fans who have never given up on us, never believed it was over.”
This isn’t the first time the boys have promised a return after their break, either. Right after the guys announced their hiatus, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson took to Twitter to ensure fans they aren’t going anywhere, with Niall adding that they “still have lots they want to achieve” as a group.
While they are on their break, though, Liam, Niall, Louis, and Harry Styles have all discussed how they plan on spending the free time they haven’t really had in the last five years. Perhaps one of the most exciting ventures will be had by Louis — aside from welcoming a baby with Briana Jungwirth — who will go down memory lane when he acts as a judge for the UK’s X Factor later next year. But does that mean he’s on the hunt for the next 1D? Considering Louis is as certain about their post-break return as Liam, he says no way!
“I’m not going to be looking for any competition,” Louis said. “We’re coming back. No one is going to get in the way of 1D.”
There you have it, Directioners…no need to fret! We might not be seeing much of the One Direction guys in 2016, but we will definitely be seeing them together in the future!
Are you so excited to hear that 1D will be coming back after their break, HollywoodLifers? What do you hope to see them do while they’re on their hiatus? Tell us below!
