Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will all be added to Disney+ March 16. The series previously streamed on Netflix, with SHIELD originally airing on ABC before that. The move brings the bulk of Marvel’s TV series to one streaming home. Animated series M.O.D.O.K and Hit-Monkey are currently streaming on hulu. 

Starz has renewed Hightown for season three. The crime dramais set amid the drug trade on Cape Cod, touched off when a body washes ashore and discovered by an irreverent National Marine Fisheries Service officer who is determined to help solve the murder even if the state cops want her nowhere near the case. The series stars Monica Raymund, James Badge Dale, Riley Voelkel, Amaury Nolasco, Atkins Estimond, and Dohn Norwood.

It quickly becomes clear that though the protagonists are creatures, they have a lot of humanity themselves.

Starring Luke Kirby and Tiana Okoye, the series pairs an eccentric, agoraphobic arm-chair detective with a reluctant traffic cop in a series that showcases community, connection, and yes, only-in-Florida characters.
