Although it was off the air so long that it felt like The 100 TV show had been cancelled, now it’s back for a fifth season on The CW. Like last year, the littlest network decided to hold the post-apocalyptic action series for mid-season. How will it do this time out — well enough to justify another installment? Will The 100 be cancelled or renewed for season six? Stay tuned.
A dystopian CW sci-fi drama, The 100 stars Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos, Lindsey Morgan, Christopher Larkin, Henry Ian Cusick, and Tasya Teles. The story centers on a post-apocalyptic group of survivors, who believe their people are all that is left of mankind. When they return to Earth, they realize they aren’t the only ones. **Status update below.
Season five kicks off six years after the season four finale, with our heroes still separated. While Bellamy’s (Morely) team is in space, Clarke (Taylor) is on the ground, and hundreds are trapped in the bunker below. When a prison ship descends upon the last habitable spot on the planet, The 100 must unite to reclaim their home. Expect alliances to shift as war threatens to wipe out the remnants of humanity.
