The glitch has caused many of the popular shows to disappear.

Those include fan favorites Dexter, House, Grey’s Anatomy, How I Met Your Mother, and Suits just to name a few.

Of course fans took to Twitter to rant about the problem[3] — many thinking the shows were gone for good.

Netflix was quick to Tweet back:

Don’t worry, your show is not gone! Some members are having issues accessing certain content. Our engineers are working to resolve the issue.

A quick fix and lesson learned: Don’t mess with someone in the middle of a “House of Cards” marathon.

NFLX stock is up 1.9% in early morning trading.
