Will One Direction's Hiatus be Permanent?

This might be the worst week ever for One Direction fans. Sources close to the mega-popular boy band are saying that the guys are gearing up to take an extended hiatus beginning in March. After releasing five albums together the guys are ready to go their separate ways to work on various solo projects.

According to a report by People, "The group, which is now made up of Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, has mutually agreed to take at least a year long break from the band to pursue their own projects, a source confirms to PEOPLE. This break also means there will not be a tour for their fifth album, which is expected to be released later this year."

The obvious question here is whether or not the hiatus will end up being permanent. Even if they anticipate making 1D a thing of the past there is no way that their management would make that kind of announcement. They need the fans to follow them into their solo careers, not be furious with them for pulling the plug on the beloved boy band.

Do you think that One Direction will ultimately get back together after their extended hiatus? Or is this the beginning of the end for them?
