In September 2009, rumours emerged of a second Spice Girls reunion after Melanie B, Melanie C, Geri and Emma were photographed having a meal together in London. Victoria Beckham was absent from the night due to her work schedule. Brown then mused about the possibilities of another tour on her Twitter.
Geri was then quoted during a television interview on British's morning show This Morning saying;
"Fundamentally we are friends first and foremost. We started out that way, that very strong friendship, and whatever happens afterwards is a bonus."
“We always talk about creative plans and possibilities, definitely... And yes [we did talk about that last week]. Right now, we are gathering information and thinking about possibilities... but when you're evolving a plan you don't share it to the world until it's concrete...If they do cement themselves, I'll be the first to tell you."
Melanie Brown then responded to questions regarding another reunion via her official message board, saying;
"I would love to tell you. But until all 5 of us have finalised everything, out of respect for each other and the Spice brand, mum's the word for now. All 5 of us are in discussions right now, I’ll let you know what we decide on once all 5 of us agree. But it is all very exciting!"
Emma then told readers of Now Magazine that they had been discussing work-related subjects:
"...sure all five of us will be catching up again soon. Watch this space!"
In mid-October, Melanie C denied on GMTV all rumours about a possible reunion with Spice Girls, explaining that it is not feasible to have a comeback at the moment.
In the same month, reports suggested that the Spice Girls are to star in a reality show in which they will cast female actors to play their roles in a musical. Melanie Brown denied this claim, stating that all members of the group were already accounted for and planning "something exciting".During that time, Brown admitted in a Colombian interview that she is planning to get together with the groups' former members for a reality show, stating that she was looking for a "girls" inspired in the Spice Girls.
On 1 November 2009, Simon Fuller supposedly suggested that the Spice Girls would get together to perform at the 2012 Summer Olympics and kick off their second reunion tour, though this has not been verified by any of the girls.
On 31 May 2010, reports suggested that the group are to reform again; with a new album, DVD and tour; without Victoria; as she is reluctant to join. Emma denied it on her Twitter page that very same day.
Later, Victoria denied all this as she told Hello Magazine "I haven't been told anything about a reunion!" Then going on to say:
"Noone's asked me to be part of anything like that, and I'm just so busy at the moment. I'm very hands-on with designing and I'm loving every minute of it. Even though I've just shown one dress collection, we're already working on next season's designs."
On 12 August 2012 the Spice Girls reunited as a quintet for the last time and did play at the 2012 London Summer Olympic Closing Ceremony. This was the last Spice Girls concert to feature Victoria Beckham and Mel C. Then on 11 December 2012 they came back for the world premiere of Viva Forever The Musical . In 2016 Mel B, Emma Bunton, and Geri Halliwell reunited as The Spice Girls for the 20th anniversary of "Wannabe". A new album and tour are expected in 2017. Victoria Beckham and Mel C opted to not take part in the reunion to focus on their own careers.
