Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Logan Henderson and Carlos PenaVega are back together.

Rushers, our time is now. Big Time Rush just reunited in a video, reactivated their Twitter page and teased a 2020 comeback.

Reunion season is well and truly upon us. The Jonas Brothers reformed last year, the Pussycat Dolls are back together and it even looks like One Direction are working on something. However, there's one beloved group that have been silent until now. Ever since Big Time Rush split in 2014 after three albums and their own iconic Nickelodeon show, fans have wanted more.

Taking to Twitter last night (Apr 21), Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Logan Henderson and Carlos PenaVega made a virtual hangout video of all four of them on the official Big Time Rush Twitter page. In it, they encourage their fans to stay safe and reconnect with friends and family like they've been doing. However, it appears they've been doing more than just talking.

At the end of the video, Carlos said: "We love you guys so much. Spread that love, spread that aloha and who knows... a lot to look forward to at the end of this." In other words, it looks like there will be a Big Time Rush reunion "to look forward to" when lockdown ends. If that weren't enough, Carlos ended the video saying: "See you soon". YES. THIS IS REAL LIFE.

Naturally, fans started losing it and Big Time Rush began liking tweets seemingly confirming that not only is a reunion on the way but new music and a tour. One tweet they liked says: "April, the fourth month. Big time rush... 4th album. I hope." So it looks like a new album is coming. Plus Nickelodeon retweeted their tweets so there may be a TV show and a tour too.

BRB - listening to 'Boyfriend' on repeat until lockdown ends.
