During the COVID pandemic, Netflix scored a huge hit with their original dating show Love Is Blind. The concept is pretty cool, as groups of male singles and female singles who live in the same city meet each other in “pods” where they can’t see each other and speed date, before narrowing their options down. Marriage is proposed without ever having seen what the other person looks like, and the show then follows the couples as they have to explore the other parts of a relationship, like physical compatibility and all the issues that come with real-world relationships. At the end of a period that lasts around a month, the couples have the opportunity to get married at the altar, and find out if love truly is blind.

And, season four of Love is Blind has been a huge hit. Unlike past seasons, where the episodes were released all at once, Netflix has released the episodes in chunks the last four weeks. The finale aired on Friday, with the live reunion show set to be broadcast on Netflix Sunday evening. Netflix does not do a lot of live broadcasts, and now we know why.

Nerflix could not get the Love is Blind live reunion broadcast to work, ultimately delaying the show, then deciding to tape it and show later.

Twitter was fired up with the big snafu.

Not great, Netflix! Thankfully, we will all get our Love is Blind fix soon.
