The 100 Plot: What is it about?
‘The 100’ is is set 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse on Earth. Life is destroyed and devastated. About 2,400 survivors live in a single massive space station but resources are running out they know that they cannot live here for long. In order to find a solution, they send 100 juvenile prisoners back to Earth to see if human life can be sustained, and the planet repopulated. Contrary to their initial beliefs, they find that life is not destroyed completely and groups of people are locked down in a power struggle. Reapers, Grounders, Cannibals and Mountain men are some of the groups of survivors.
The story evolves in each season. In season 4, we see hundreds of nuclear reactors around the world melt down due to decades of neglect. Clarke and the others find ways to survive the wave of radiation.
In the season 5, the story moves six years ahead after the nuclear reactor meltdown. A prisoner transport ship arrives at the only green spot left on Earth, where Clarke and Madi have been living. Those who survived in space and in the bunker have returned safely on the ground. Meanwhile, there’s a struggle between the prisoners and a new, united clan, known as Wonkru, which ultimately resulting in the destruction of the valley. Those who survivor escape to space and go into cryosleep while they wait for the Earth to recover.
In season 6, when Clarke and others wake up after 125 years in cryosleep, they find out that they are no longer orbiting Earth and have been brought to a new habitable world, Alpha, also known as Sanctum. After landing on this world, they discover a new society, which is ruled by a family known as the Primes. However, they know that there are new dangers in this new world too, as they learn about a mysterious rebel group, known as the Children of Gabriel. The season ends with Sanctum becoming a battleground between the devout and the non-believers.
Season 7 will most likely pick up the story from where season 6 ends and might see Clarke and other prisoners face new kinds of challenges.
