The 100 cast and crew took on [email protected] this afternoon. The main focus of the panel was to tease what's in store this final season and how the journey may end. Series stars Marie Avgeropoulos, Lindsey Morgan, Richard Harmon, Tasya Teles, Shannon Kook, JR Bourne, Shelby Flannery, and creator/executive producer Jason Rothenberg all took part in the panel from their respective locations. The result was a fun and loose discussion about the past, present, and the future of the series.
For six seasons, The 100 have fought to survive against unimaginable odds. In the seventh and final season, these heroes are faced with obstacles that they've never before had to confront, including that of time. Pushed to their physical and emotional limits, they come to terms with decisions they have made throughout the years and find answers to questions not only about themselves but also about what it means to live--and not just survive. Season seven is going to see some pretty big changes, though it's unclear how everything will come to an end of our heroes.
The 100 follows a group of post-apocalyptic survivors, specifically a group of criminal adolescents, including Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor), Finn Collins (Thomas McDonell), Bellamy Blake (Bob Morley), Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropoulos), Jasper Jordan (Devon Bostick), Monty Green (Christopher Larkin), Raven Reyes (Lindsey Morgan), John Murphy (Richard Harmon), and Wells Jaha (Eli Goree). These adolescents are some of the first to arrive back on Earth after a nuclear apocalypse nearly wiped out the entire planet. They were originally living on a space station called the Ark, but have to journey to Earth to see if it's still habitable.
The post-apocalyptic science fiction drama series is loosely based on the novel series of the same name by Kass Morgan. Since The 100 first debuted, back in 2014, it has been a hit with critics and viewers, even those of whom who had read Morgan's novels. It's never easy taking books and bringing them to the screen, regardless of big or small. Even though the series is loosely based on Morgan's books, there is still enough to keep viewers attached to the storylines as they go in new and unexpected directions.
While The 100 is coming to an end, there are still more stories to be told. In late 2019, series creator Jason Rothenberg began developing a The 100 prequel series for The CW. A pilot episode was ordered, which already aired during the original show's final season. The prequel series is set to show the events 97 years before the original series, beginning with the nuclear apocalypse that wiped out almost all life on Earth. The 100 is from Bonanza Productions in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television, and CBS Television Studios. It airs Wednesdays at 8/7c, exclusively on The CW.
