Netflix's first-ever live reunion did not got to plan. Like, not at all.

Viewers were clearly excited to watch the Love Is Blind live reunion, which was slated to air at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday. It was a fantastic season of the reality TV show, and folks were hyped-up to see a reunion play out live.

What happened to the reunion livestream?

Unfortunately, Netflix's tech wasn't able to deliver. Something went wrong, and the company could not get the reunion to air. The livestream crashed... Well, it never really even got going to be honest.

"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," Netflix said(opens in a new tab) in a tweet. "We're filming it now and we'll have it on Netflix as soon as humanly possible."

Some folks — like yours truly — stuck it out and were somehow able to watch the reunion on Sunday. But for everyone else the reunion will finally hit the streaming service at 3 p.m. ET on Monday.

But until then, people reacted online exactly how you'd expect. They produced some fantastic memes and jokes.

The internet reactions

There were the typical jokes you might see online — you know, the pile-on where everyone has to chime in.

But there were also some jokes specific to the show, which, by the way, had a truly wild and dramatic season — even for a show based around the idea of getting engaged to someone you've never seen and only known for a few days.

The reunion will finally be available to the general public on Monday and we'll likely get even more memes. As someone who was somehow blessed with watching it early, I can say it was a good reunion after the wait.

How to watch the Love Is Blind reunion

According to a tweet from Netflix, the reunion will be available to stream on its platform at 3 p.m. ET on Monday (April 17). "Promise," the streaming service added.
