UPDATE: “Not all heroes wear capes,” Netflix tweeted with an accompanying Luke Cage GIF. “Engineers to the rescue. We’re back.”

UPDATE: The Luke Cage twitter account is assuring subscribers there are “some heroes at Netflix” hard at work on the outage. (See the tweet below.)

EARLIER: On Saturday, Netflix subscribers were devastated to find the streaming platform unavailable a mere day after the premiere of Marvel’s Luke Cage. At least, that’s how people reacted on social media. 

Netflix promptly released a statement on the matter, though it wasn’t enough to stop the flood of responses from people aching for their Netflix fix. “We are aware of streaming issues and we are working quickly to solve them,” it read. “We will update you when they are resolved.”

 

Sparked by Marvel’s collaboration with Netflix, the Defenders-bound series have become highly-anticipated events. On Friday, the latest installment debuted all episodes of its first season, starring Mike Colter as the impenetrable Luke Cage. 

Reactions to the technical issues ranged from silly GIFs to “breakdowns” to frustration. See some of them below. 

 

Plus, more from the official Luke Cage Twitter. 

 

It’s currently unclear the exact cause of the issue. Reps for Netflix did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
