Talk about starting off with a bang: The 100 is getting a prequel series, set right after a nuclear apocalypse kills off most of the human population. The CW series has been running for 6 seasons now, and a backdoor pilot for a The 100 prequel has just been ordered ahead of the seventh and final season. A potential 100 prequel has been a possibility for a few years, but now that the end is truly near for the main series, The CW seems ready to move ahead.
It feels like 2016 is just flying by, because we’re just over three weeks away from San Diego Comic-Con. We’ll be in the heart of all the pop culture craziness as usual, and it looks like fans are going to have their days packed pretty full if they plan on seeing everything that Warner Bros. Television has to offer. The TV studio is bring 21 shows to the convention this summer.

The cast and creator of The CW’s The 100 were at WonderCon last weekend for a panel. After their panel, we caught up with creator Jason Rothenberg and stars Eliza Taylor and Lindsey Morgan in roundtables. The show has been on hiatus for a few weeks after a devastating episode in which (spoiler alert!) Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey) dies moments after consummating her love with Clarke (Taylor). The Flame, an A.I., is removed from Lexa’s neck and saved for the future commander. Rothenberg said The 100 will address that story for the rest of the season, but takes a bit of a break this week.
“Episode 9 is a different story,” Rothenberg said. “It’s a very emotional episode and it has a lot of things in it that will be hard for people to watch, but it’s a very special episode in many ways. The story of The Flame from the Arcadia side of it, from A.L.I.E.’s side of it is taking a week off. In 10 is when that really begins to ramp up in a huge, huge way.” Read More »

The 100 finally returns for its third season after nearly a year off the air. Loyal fans have been waiting to see what becomes of Clarke (Eliza Taylor)’s solo journey after leaving the camp, and what’s going on with that woman in the red dress. Well, you’ll see that three months have gone by and Clarke is a good hunter, but she can’t stay alone for long. Raven (Lindsey Morgan) can still barely use her leg but she’s on a scouting mission, with a modern soundtrack.
The CW presented a panel of The 100 cast for the Television Critics Association and we got to sit down with creator and show runner Jason Rothenberg while he was in Los Angeles. Some mild spoilers of the first two episodes of the new season are part of our discussion. The 100 returns Thursday, January 21 at 9 on The CW. Read More »
