'The 100' Season 7: Release date, plot, cast, trailer, news and everything else about the dystopian show
‘The 100’ is one of The CW’s most successful shows, and for good reason. With many badass female characters, a good representation of the LGBT community and sexual/romantic tension between the lead characters that grip you right from the beginning, the show has managed to touch the hearts of many young adults.
Over the past six seasons, there have been some complaints from viewers, especially when some of their favorite characters get killed off, but every time the show has managed to bounce back, with either a brand new storyline or a great character arc, or even a brilliant performance by one of the stars. It is no surprise that the show has inspired the network to greenlight a seventh season.
'The 100' was renewed by The CW for season seven even as season six was airing, and no official premiere date has been announced. However, we do know that the season premieres usually happen within the first quarter of every year, leading us to trust that we can expect season seven to land in or before April 2020.
'The final season will premiere on The CW on May 20. The show will air every Wednesday at 8/7c.
'The 100' began 500 years after a nuclear apocalypse. The story kicked off in a space station looking for any signs that Earth has become habitable. And, to find out if it is in fact, habitable, those in charge send 100 juvenile delinquents to earth. Turns out, it is habitable, but they need to fight for survival at every turn.
There are Grounder tribes who have wars within themselves, who have brutal rules of their own, and are not all that welcoming to outsiders – especially those who have come from outer space. The enemies continue to multiply when they meet the Mountain Men, and with each passing seasons, new threats arise, including yet another apocalypse and the deaths of loved ones.
In the ongoing season six, we see our protagonists – who are no longer just the Skaicru – waking up from a 100-year cryogenic nap docking on a brand new world. The tribulations in that world are completely new, especially since the colonizers of that world have their own set of rules, some of which are inhumane.
Eliza Taylor leads the cast as Clarke Griffin, a resourceful, perseverant, natural leader of the Sky People, who has made many questionable decisions over the years. She finds her confidant in Bellamy Blake, portrayed by Bob Morley, who is an equally charismatic leader. He is capable of forgiving all her sins, even when they affect him.
Another significant character on the show is Octavia Blake, portrayed by Marie Avgeropoulos, who was born a crime on the space ship. Younger sister to Bellamy, she has lived in the shadows all her life before her feet touched on Earth. Having never been able to relate to her own people, she finds love and a mentor among the Grounders, and even though we loved her journey as a badass warrior, she proved as the Bloodreina that she is addicted to power.
Richard Harmon plays John Murphy aka the cockroach -a survivalist. Viewers' relationship with him is.... complicated.
Jason Rothenberg created ‘The 100’ based on the first novel in the book series of the same name by Kass Morgan. Despite his attempts to kick off other projects off the ground, 'The 100' is his first greenlit show. Having been closely associated with the show till date, he continues to be a writer on the show and an executive producer.
Most spoilers and news about 'The 100' comes from his official Twitter account, and he is quick to answer and address any queries the fans have online as well. In all sense of the word, the show is his baby.
