‘Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ To End After Season 7 On ABC – Comic-Con
Exclusive: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will end after its upcoming seventh season.

“When you know that’s what you’re doing, you can take greater risks, of life and death,” Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb says of the conclusion of ABC’s Clark Gregg-led superspy series, which is currently in the last weeks of its explosive sixth season. “Those kinds of decisions suddenly now are real on the table because you’re not playing how do we undo this when we get to the next season. You’re playing that this is going to be the end of the story.”

A regular and often circumspect presence at Comic-Con over the past decade, Loeb will be joining Gregg, fellow cast members Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley and Jeff Ward in S.H.I.E.L.D.

Honoring Kyoto Animation: Where to Stream the Studio’s Anime Films and TV

Kyoto Animation, responsible for some of the world’s most cherished anime films and television shows, was set ablaze in Japan Thursday morning. Thirty-three people have been confirmed dead in the arson attack, and anime fans from around the globe have shown an outpouring of support and sympathy for the renowned studio on social media.

Anime has had a loyal following in the United States for years, but the genre is relatively uncommon on most streaming platforms. Although some American streamers are beginning to incorporate anime in their content libraries, it’s often difficult to find legal, high-quality streaming sources for many anime films and television.

Here’s a list and descriptions of some of Kyoto Animation’s most popular television shows and links to where they can be legally streamed:

‘Unbelievable’ Trailer: Sexual Assault Victim Fights to Be Heard in Toni Colette-Starring Netflix Drama

Netflix found a hit this summer with “When They See Us,” adapting a true story of a past injustice into a miniseries that addresses contemporary societal demons. Now the streaming giant is hoping to repeat that success, and perhaps some of the progress that accompanied it, with “Unbelievable.” The new limited series about rape culture in America, based on reporting from ProPublica and NPR, is set to debut on the platform this fall.

Netflix’s official synopsis reads: “When teenager Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever) files a police report claiming she’s been sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home, the investigating detectives, as well as the people closest to her, come to doubt the truth of her story. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall (Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) meet while investigating an eerily similar pair of intruder rapes and partner to catch a potential serial rapist.
