Here’s when The Lovebirds drops on Netflix for your viewing pleasure

If you have long been waiting for The Lovebirds to premiere, you’ll be glad to know that the movie drops tonight on Netflix!

What time will you be able to stream it? It all depends on your location.

The Lovebirds will be available to stream at 12:01 a.m. PT on Friday, May 22. This means that, you can stay up late to watch it, if this time lands on your time zone. Otherwise, you may as well wait until the morning, because those on the East Coast will be staying up until 3:01 a.m. ET to watch.

It is the weekend, though. You may be able to stay up late and just catch up on sleep later. From what critics are saying, this movie is well worth the wait.

The Lovebirds premieres on Netflix on May 22

Since the trailer for The Lovebirds, starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani, debuted early this year, we have been excited to watch it. Of course, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the movie was no longer able to premiere in theaters on its original date, which would have been April 3, 2020.

At the same time, news surfaced to share that Netflix would be streaming the movie, instead. Sure, we had to wait a few weeks, but we knew this movie would be worth it.

What is The Lovebirds about?

The comedy-drama follows Jibran (Nanjiani) and Leilani  (Rae), a couple that is head over heels in love with each other. That is, until their relationship is put to the ultimate test.

After a series of unfortunate events, Jibran and Leilani become the prime suspects of a murder. Knowing they don’t have a chance if they go to the police, they decide to embark on a murder mystery to solve the crime themselves and prove their innocence. But will their relationship survive this?

Check out the trailer below!

Will you be watching The Lovebirds as soon as it debuts or wait until the weekend to stream it? Either way, don’t miss this one!
