Maybe you were planning to catch up after a day out, or maybe you were saving it for early morning viewing—so you might not be thrilled to find out that the Love is Blind reunion is not working on Netflix.

But what exactly happened and when will you be able to watch it? (Here's a full recap if you don't mind the spoilers.)

Why is the 'Love is Blind' reunion not working on Netflix?

That's right—the streaming service's second-ever live event did not go to plan last night, which is why the reunion is not available to watch yet. 

Viewers who tuned in to the live stream had to wait for over an hour for it to start and kept getting the message: "Pardon the interruption. We’re having trouble playing Netflix. Please check your internet and try again."

They finally got going at 9:18pm ET, although it was no longer live. Plus, not everyone could actually access the stream, leaving many fans unable to watch the reunion. Not the relaxing, fun evening we had in mind...

When will the 'Love is Blind' reunion be available to stream on Netflix? 

Rest easy though because Netflix has officially announced that Love Is Blind: The Reunion will be available to watch globally at 12pm PT on April 17. That's 3pm ET (and 8pm for those in the UK).

Earlier in the evening, Netflix had issued an apology, telling fans they were filming it rather than streaming it live.

"To everyone who stayed up late, woke up early, gave up their Sunday afternoon… we are incredibly sorry that the Love is Blind Live Reunion did not turn out as we had planned. We're filming it now and we'll have it on Netflix as soon as humanly possible. Again, thank you and sorry", they wrote on Twitter.

We'll forgive you Netflix but the tea better be good!
