Is a One Direction reunion coming? Fans of the band sure think so, according to People magazine.

“One Direction” fans are speculating that a reunion with all five original members of the band may be in the works after noticing that Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne had begun following Zayn Malik (who left the group in 2015) and the official One Direction account on Twitter, according to People.

Just last week, Payne told The Sun that there are plans in the works for the band’s 10-year anniversary in July, though he said he couldn’t reveal many details yet, according to Teen Vogue.

One Direction went on an “indefinite hiatus” in 2015. Since then, there have been rumors a possible reunion, according to Teen Vogue.

“I think it’ll happen at some point, we’d be stupid not to,” Tomlinson said in January, according to the New York Post.

Fans have also noticed that One Direction’s former website has been reactivated and all of the group’s albums are back on Apple Music, according to the Post.

One Direction fans have been in a “frenzy” on Twitter discussing the band possibly reuniting, according to People.
