‘Love Is Blind’ Reunion Sets 12 P.M. PT Monday Launch On Netflix – Deadline

2ND UPDATE with latest: Netflix’s reunion special for Love Is Blind Season 4 will finally make it to the air on Monday, April 17 at 12 p.m. PT, 19 hours after initially planned.

Netflix made the announcement in a message posted to its social media accounts on Sunday night. “Love Is Blind: The Reunion will be available globally at 12pm PT on April 17,” wrote a spokesperson. “Promise.”

While the program was supposed to mark the streamer’s second ever in the live-event space, unspecified technical issues forced that plan to be scrapped Sunday. The show did go on, though, with a taping before an in-person audience last night. Read more about the situation below.

UPDATE, April 16, 6:39 p.m.: Netflix has issued a new statement on its social media channels regarding the more than 90-minute delay on the live reunion of Love Is Blind Season 4.

“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,” wrote a spokesperson via the streamer’s official Twitter account. “We’re filming it now and we’ll have it on Netflix as soon as humanly possible. Again, thank you and sorry.” Read more about the delays below.

PREVIOUSLY, April 16: The live reunion for Netflix’s Love Is Blind, planned for Sunday night at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET, has yet to hit the air.

The reasons behind the delay were not immediately clear, and Netflix couldn’t be reached for comment. But the special bringing an end to the hugely popular reality series’ fourth season is just the second on the part of Netflix in the live-event space, on the heels of Chris Rock’s live-streamed stand-up special Chris Rock: Selective Outrage, which debuted on the platform on March 4.

“Pardon the interruption. We’re having trouble playing Netflix. Please check your internet connection and try again,” read a message on Netflix after the live show failed to load.

Netflix addressed the issue online with a tweet reading, “Love is … late #LoveIsBlindLIVE will be on in 15 minutes!”

Deadline has reached out to Netflix for comment and will update you when we hear back.

A hugely popular series out of Netflix’s ever-expanding reality dating universe, also encompassing such series as The Ultimatum, The Circle, Too Hot to Handle and Perfect Match, Love Is Blind follows a series of single men and women from one specific metropolitan area (Seattle this season) as they go on blind speed dates within adjoined rooms called “pods,” getting engaged without ever seeing one another face to face. The show hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey returned for its fourth season March 24 and has already been picked up for a fifth season.

Netflix promised viewers that the wait for the reunion was going to be worth it in a follow-up tweet, accompanying a photo of Season 4 participant Irina Solomonova. The streamer initially divulged its plans to experiment with live programming last summer, with plans to apply the livestream format to stand-up specials, programming out of the reality sphere and more.

Following the delay on the live reunion, Blockbuster took to social media to remind people that this wouldn’t happen with a VHS tape.

“Remember renting vhs’ from us. You could start it on time no problem… This is what we get,” read the tweet.

Naturally, memes also ensued.
