For weeks the watchseries site has been down, leaving visitors confused as to its whereabouts.

When trying to visit the site you may have been given a notice such as ‘access to this website has been blocked’.

And that’s because it looks as if the site has been taken down.

It’s currently unknown whether the site will come back or whether it will reappear under another domain.
