According to Billboard, the band made the announcement on their Twitter account on Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Although there is very little information yet about the special, here are a few things we know:

The band has a partnership with NBC that also includes their Today show performance on Nov. 17 — and is most likely why this special is even happening.

However, they have appeared on TV specials in England plenty of times.

3. This Christmas special is likely happening to support their tour and new album

One Direction announced their worldwide tour just a few weeks ago, which will take them out on the road February through September of 2015. They will also release their new album, Four, on Nov. 17, the same day they perform on Today.
