The 100‘s most recent season ended in early October on The CW, and now the sci-fi show’s latest 16 episodes have come to Netflix in the U.S. Individual’s episodes have been a hit with viewers, and the series is now at number four on the streamer’s top 10 chain graph. This means that plenty of viewers have made their way to the finish of the episodes and are eagerly anticipating Season 9 of The 100.
Those viewers will be disappointed. The series isn’t coming back for Season 8, meaning that the episodes on Netflix will be the last episodes of this strike CW show. In reality, The 100 was cancelled back in August 2019, when it was announced the show would be ending (very appropriately ) following its 100th episode.
He and his writers had been planning to finish the show after Season 7 for the past couple of years. He told the site, “when it started to feel as if it was in it for the future, we didn’t feel too confident about that ending until roughly the end of season five.
“That is about the time where we left a pitch to the studio network to let’s write to an ending, such as can we finish the show at the end of year seven. At this time, we did start to invent our end game.”
Though there will not be any Season 8 of The 100 on Netflix or The CW, this may not be the last we see of the series’s world. The 100 Season 7, Episode 8, branded “Anaconda,” acted not only as a flashback event, but also a pilot for a new prequel which could be coming soon to”The CW, HBO Max or Netflix”.
Rothenberg said: “What I can say is in relation to whether or not it’s going to happen is that there are discussions that are still occurring at the maximum level. . .there are a chance, a good chance, I guess that it could return.”
The current working name for this prequel is The 100: Second Dawn, and it would place two years following the apocalyptic event which wiped out most of humanity (The 100 proper places 100 hundred years after it). He has also teased the prequel would also flashback even sooner. “I’d love to do Missing -fashion flashback episodes to pre-apocalypse happens. I truly need to shoot restaurants, bars and houses, and not have to be in the middle of the woods all the time.”
Why he was bringing the first series to a conclusion, meanwhile, that the showrunner said,”[100 episodes is] a long time to be telling the story of one group of personalities. We also did not want to overstay our welcome and be a series that has been making episodes into Season 10 and 12, and outside, only to do it.”
The 100 Seasons 1 to 2 are streaming now on Netflix; The 100 prequel hasn’t been greenlit yet.
