‘The 100’ is The CW’s post-apocalyptic dystopian drama that had started off with a bunch of juvenile delinquents, considered disposable by the Ark. After humanity collapses, following a nuclear war, the last-remaining survivors reside in the space ship, called the Ark. They send a group of criminal adolescents to earth in order to check if the planet holds any scope of habitation.
Well, that’s the basic premise of the series but across its last six seasons, the story has evolved a lot. Packed with vivid visuals, fast plotlines, and dynamic characters, ‘The 100’ has secured a firm spot in The CW’s scripted programming block. And to the delight of fans, it was commissioned for its seventh outing as well. Read on to know everything about ‘The 100’ season 7.

The 100 Season 7 Cast: Who Can be in it?
Over the years since its premiere, the cast of ‘The 100’ has undergone massive changes — with only a few faces being constants from the first season until now. Hence, many of the stars from its former seasons won’t be appearing in the next iteration. In season 7, the actors who have been confirmed to make comebacks are Eliza Taylor as Clarke Griffin, Marie Avgeropoulos as Octavia Blake, Bob Morley as Bellamy Blake, Lindsey Morgan as Raven Reyes, Richard Harmon as John Murphy, Tasya Teles as Echo, Shannon Kook as Jordan Green, JR Bourne as Russell Lightbourne, Chuku Modu as Gabriel Santiago, and Shelby Flannery as Hope Diyoza. New additions include Alaina Huffman as Nikki and Chad Rook as Hatch.
The 100 Season 7 Plot: What Can it be About?
Season 6 of ‘The 100′ ends on a massive cliffhanger, with Hope’s grown-up version showing up to stab Octavia to her apparent death. Season 7 will pick up the story right from here without any time travel. As expected, it will delve further into The Anomaly after the adult Hope twist.
On the other hand, Clarke will need to pacify the inhabitants of the Sanctum while dealing with the aftermath of the Primes’ slaying. She is forced to maintain her sanity while navigating the politics between her Sanctum followers, the Children of Gabriel, and Wonkru’s inhabitants. There are also the prisoners from Elegius who will feature in the episodes.
In another exciting bit of news, ‘The 100’ will also have its spin-off — and the prequel will be introduced to viewers through a backdoor pilot during the run of season 7 itself! This story will revolve around the aftermath of the world’s first nuclear apocalypse and follow “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” — according to The CW.
