More than a year ago, the remaining members of One Direction -- Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan -- announced that they would be going on a hiatus in order to focus on their solo careers. And while the band has not officially broken up, it might take a few years until its fans see a reunion.

It has been quite a while since the hiatus was officially announced, and with the success of the boys’ solo careers taking off, some fans have speculated that a reunion might be in the works. None of the boys have ever denied that one will take place eventually, but no one has also given even the slightest hint of when it might happen. Louis has just gone on the record to say that fans might have a while to wait.

In an interview with The Today Show, Louis explained that a One Direction reunion was just not penned in anyone's books at this point. “There’s time for that,” he said. “Nobody knows when. I think we’re enjoying a but of time to ourselves, exploring our own solo things.”

But while Louis was not able to give an official timeline, Hollywood Life was able to speak with an insider who confirmed that it will be much longer before a One Direction reunion is announced. “We all know they are all working on their own things right now,” the source said. “But Niall, Louis, Liam and Harry are definitely for it, but it will be years down the line.” They explained that the boy are looking to finish their personal goals before working with each other again.

The One Direction boys have been using the months apart wisely as each member has experiences some level of success. Louis was on The Today Show with Steve Aoki to perform their new single, entitled “Think A Little Less Today.” Meanwhile, Niall Horan’s first single “This Town” was well received when it first hit the market. On the other hand, both fans and non fans of Harry Styles are already praising his acting in “Dunkirk,” which stars both Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy. Liam has also been reportedly working with some of the industry’s biggest names, but he is also expecting his first child with girlfriend Cheryl.
