The day after Luke Cage series was released, Netflix had a service outage for 2 hours and fans are freaking out. Cheo Coker, the Executive Producer of the series, was fast to draw a conclusion on Twitter saying "Did y'all break NETFLIX?"

According to reports, Marvel's Luke Cage may have caused the service disruption that happened Saturday afternoon, where many have decided to binge-watch the series. Netflix was quick to give a status update on Twitter posting "Hi all - we are aware of streaming issues and we are working quickly to solve them. We will update you when they are resolved."

Even "Luke Cage" official Twitter account did not just updated fans with the status of Netflix but also found ways to keep them busy while waiting. "Can't bring us anywhere. In the meantime, you can listen to the soundtrack. #LukeCage"

Two hours after, Netflix updated with "And we're back! The streaming issues we reported are now resolved." And fans finally could go back to their binge-watching. Netflix has yet to explain the cause of the outage so it cannot be determined whether Luke Cage did or did not cause the service interruption.

Meanwhile, fans that were able to finish the 13-episode series on Netflix reviewed it positively and is starting to create a buzz on the internet. The series stars Mike Colter and centers on the life of Luke Cage, also known as Power Man, who hopes to fix his life after all the things that have happened in the past. Cage defends his neighborhood from the villains, criminals and even political elements who wishes to manipulate his city.

The same actor also played as Luke Cage in the first season of "Jessica Jones" and is set to portray the same role in the upcoming series "The Defenders," which will also be aired on Netflix.
