The 100 is ending, but fans may not have to say goodbye to the world of the show just yet.
The CW is developing a prequel series to the popular sci-fi drama, EW has confirmed. The network has ordered production of a backdoor pilot, which means it will air as an episode of The 100during its seventh and final season.
Set 97 years before the events of the original series, the prequel show starts with the end of the world, a nuclear apocalypse that wipes out most of the human population on Earth. The epic adventure follows a band of survivors on the ground as they learn to cope in a dangerous world while fighting to create a new and better society from the ashes of what came before. Fans of The 100 know that these survivors will become what makes up the Grounder civilization that has been featured on the original series.
The one-hour drama prequel series comes from The 100 creator/showrunner Jason Rothenberg along with executive producers Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo. “So excited to keep expanding the world of #The100,” Rothenberg tweeted about the news.
