Fans of TFiOS Can Rest a Little Easier Tonight — the Bench Has Returned!
Fear not, dedicated fans of The Fault in Our Stars — our beloved bench has returned! Last week, the entire world (okay, that may be going a little too far, but not by much) was shocked to learn that the green bench on which Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) and Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) sat and talked and kissed and cried in John Green‘s heartbreaking book-turned-movie had gone missing. Worst case scenario: It had been stolen by a fan of the film. But the doesn’t seem to be the case. Phew.
According to the Amsterdam Film Office, as well as Commissioner Simon Brester, the piece of history — yes, HISTORY — is being reinstalled; the same bench, NOT a replacement. See here:

In case you’re still concerned, there’s a video about it too. Case closed!
