“The 100” Television Series Returns for the Fall Lineup

The100The 100 is a post-apocalyptic drama television series that first premiered March 19, 2014 on The CW Television Network. Based on a book with the same title, the debut by Kass Morgan and developed by Jason Rothenberg, was aired as a first in a series.

The story f The 100 is set 97 years after a horrific nuclear war wiped out almost all life form on Earth. However, a few residents of 12 space stations in orbit, representing the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, China, India, Russia, Japan, France, Uganda, Brazil, and Venezuela, did survive.

Banding together, the remaining 2,400 people formed one huge station named “The Ark”. Because of the situation, finding resources is difficult and any crime, regardless of type or severity, is punishable by death, except those under the age of 18.

In The 100, vital support systems begin to fail and in one final attempt to determine if people can inhabit Earth, 100 young prisoners deemed expendable are sent to find out. Unlike what residents of The Ark believed, the 100 prisoners discovered that some people had survived, which they called “grounders”.

The 100 has a very talented cast to include Eliza Taylor (Clarke Griffin) who was imprisoned as an accessory for crimes her father committed, Bob Morley (Bellamy Blake), a strong and capable leader, Thomas McDonnell (Finn Collins), a reckless, adventurous, and entertaining teenager, and Marie Avgeropoulos (Octavia Blake), Bellamy’s sister and independent but also rebellious girl.

Other actors starring in The 100 cast include Devon Bostick, Lindsey Morgan, Ricky Whittle, Christopher Larkin, Paige Turco, Isiah Washington, Eli Goree, and Henry Ian Cusick, as well as many recurring cast members. Fans of The 100 will be thrilled to know that season two, starting with episode 16, is scheduled to air on October 22, 2014.
