The eighth season of The 100 is one of the much-awaited post-apocalyptic science fiction that the streaming platform offers. The way the seventh season concluded, fans are wondering if there will be the eighth season. The 100 is one of the essential offerings of The CW, which premiere back on May 20, 2020.
Additionally, the seventh season featured 16 episodes. However, the makers of The 100 revealed that the seventh season would also be the last. Also, the seven seasons featured around 100 episodes across seven different seasons.
Nevertheless, several rumours circulate that the series will be returning for the eighth season. Additionally, the revelation surrounding The 100 is that the eighth season will feature some of the new faces.
The 100: Will there be an eighth season?
There hasn’t been any discussion regarding the return of season eight. By its looks, the series isn’t going to renew for another season as the seventh season was the end.
Jason Rothenberg, the showrunner of The 100, said that the seventh season finale was the end. It was the goal of the entire team to end the series with the seventh season.
Mark Pedowitz, the CW president, has already explained that he had several discussions with Rothenberg and Jason came up with some ideas about what he wants to do with the series. Additionally, he also said that whatever Jason has thought is something they should stick to.
The 100 will feature a spin-off series
The spin-off series will focus more on the reality of the world as these people have already lived through the trying times. Jason plans to introduce something close to Lost-series kind of flashbacks. In addition to this, the spin-off also has a name, i.e., The 100: Second Dawn which takes place a couple of years after the events of the original series.
The eighth season will not be returning, and the confirmation on the spin-off isn’t credible either. Stay tuned for more details on the future of The 100.
