HBO Max users were furious as the streaming app crashed during the much-anticipated series finale of Mare of Easttown.
Murder mystery Mare of Easttown aired its season finale on Sunday night.
But the long-awaited ending was interrupted as the new streaming app HBO Max crashed.
Starring Kate Winslet, 45, the crime drama has got increasingly popular.
The seven-part series aired a new episode on HBO Max every Sunday night.
It is also popular in the UK with episodes being released on the streaming service NOW TV.
The chilling series centres around Mare Sheehan who investigates the horrific murder of teenage mother Erin McMenamin.
With a town so small, everything is interlinked, and with the death of her own son still weighing heavy on her mind, it’s up to her to try and keep a level head and not too emotionally invested in the search for the killer.
Meanwhile, there are other girls going missing from nearby, with families frantically searching for answers.
Since its first airing on April 18, 2021, Mare of Easttown has gripped fans and kept them on the edge of their seat from the opening credits.
But fans were left bitterly disappointed as they could not view the highly anticipated climax when the latest episode dropped at 10pm EST.
Millions of users were given error messages as one fan tweeted: “Three purple dots over and over and over. Did not see that coming.
“Quite the plot twist for the #MareOfEasttown finale. Thanks #HBOMax.”
