The only chill we've had has come from the weather.

Superhero Luke Cage can thank Netflix's engineers for coming to his rescue.

The American net giant took to Twitter to try and calm fans, many of whom were trying to watch the new Marvel series Luke Cage which launched last night.

According to a report by Deadline, the Netflix streaming service went through some outages recently, and the company's servers were down for over two hours.

Netflix has said in a statement: "We are aware of streaming issues and we are working quickly to solve them". There has been no update as of yet, and so naturally, the next best source of entertainment for the time being is Twitter itself, where the Netflix watchers of the world are expressing their frustrations.

While Netflix did not respond to requests for comment and the streaming service does not reveal viewing statistics, speculation online for the disruption was laid at the feet of the popularity of Marvel's Luke Cage this weekend.

So enjoy the rest of your weekends, friends.
