Catering to all age groups right from adults to teenagers to children, Netflix has got you covered. The 100, a show made on the same lines as many science fiction Dystopian era movies. It is a fantasy science fiction series whose basic instinct is survival and evolution of mankind.

The show features humanity being killed or slaughtered off due to some radioactive invasion and some alien material that caused humankind to become almost extinct. 

The 100 is an American after apocalypse drama television series developed by Jason Rothenberg and is kind of based on the book series of the name by Kass Morgan. The series follows a group of cast-outs, who have been sent down to Earth to see if it is survivable or not. For the first time in nearly a century, humans have returned to planet Earth, but they realize they’re not alone.

Details on the ending or cancelling of the show – The 100

Is the Netflix Television Series ‘The 100’ going to be cancelled?

The 100’s recently finished in early October on The CW, and now the sci-fi show’s recently developed 16 episodes have arrived on Netflix in the U.S. Those episodes have been received with a  good response from viewers, and the series is currently at the fifth position on the streamer’s top 10 series chart. This means that plenty of viewers have made their way to the end of the episodes and are waiting impatiently for Season 9 of The 100.

Those viewers will be sorely disappointed. The show is not coming back for Season 8, meaning that the new episodes on Netflix are the last ever episodes of the hit CW show. In fact, The 100 was cancelled back in August 2019, when it was announced the show would be ending (very suitably) after its 100th episode.

According to an interview with show creator Jason Rothenberg and Deadline, he and his writers had been planning to end the show after Season 7 for the last few years. He told the website, “once it started to feel like it was in it for the long run, we didn’t feel too confident about that ending until roughly the end of season five.

Regarding cancellation of The 100

Though there will be no Season 8 of The 100 on Netflix or The CW, this may not be the last we see of the show’s world. The 100 Season 7, Episode 8, titled “Anaconda,” acted not just as a flashback episode, but also a pilot for a new prequel that could be coming soon to “The CW, HBO Max or Netflix”

The aftermath

Now the good information is the makers are deciding to have a prequel spinoff to the show, The 100, as a replacement to The 100 Season 8. It is reported the prequel of The 100 would be named ‘The 100: Second Dawn’ and takes place right two years after the apocalypse. 

Jason Rothenberg told a viable television source that, “[The series will] be much more tethered to [our] reality. These people lived through the difficulties of our world, and they’ll have suggestions on them, I’d like to do Lost-style flashback episodes to pre-apocalypse times. I really want to shoot in restaurants, bars, and homes, and not have to be in the middle of the woods all the time.”

The 100 Season 8 has no possibility and currently, there is no official confirmation on spinoff The 100. Stay tuned to Devdiscourse to get the latest updates on the television series.
