While millions of people were streaming Netflix’s Luke Cage over the weekend, the streaming service suffered an hourlong outage Saturday.

Could it be that Luke Cage’s release had everyone firing up their Netflix accounts and the company’s servers couldn’t handle the massive traffic? Netflix didn’t confirm or deny that Luke Cage caused the outage, but many users on social media assumed so:

Netflix’s longest outage occurred on Christmas Eve in 2012, and it lasted 10 hours.
