After seven amazing, HYDRA-stopping, heartbreaking, action-packed seasons — Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comes to an end this week. The OG Marvel TV series that outlasted them all is finally hanging up its badge, so don't miss the last battle for the fate of the Earth. But if Marvel action isn't your thing, we also have some HBO horrors and next-gen DC supes, too.

Along with the S.H.I.E.L.D. series-ender, The CW's most recent superhero series Stargirl is also wrapping its first season. But don't worry, The CW has already picked it up for a second season of Justice Society adventures. HBO also has a splashy debut with the buzzy new horror series Lovecraft Country, which hails from A-list producers Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams.

If movies are more your thing, Starz has the pay cable premiere of Bloodshot (one of the last theatrical releases before COVID-19 shut down theaters nationwide), and HBO is dropping the excellent Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), just in case you missed it on the big screen or VOD. Digging deeper, SYFY has a new Wynonna Earp, The CW has a new The 100, AMC has a new NOS4A2, and more.

Check out the full rundown below and let us know what you'll be bingeing.
