While “The 100” is coming to an end, The CW will reportedly use the show’s seventh and final season to include a backdoor pilot for a potential prequel series.
Set 97 years before the events of the original series, the new project starts with the end of the world, a nuclear apocalypse that wipes out most of the human population on Earth.
The 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.
Jason Rothenberg will write and executive produce, with Leslie Morgenstein Gina Girolamo also executive producing. Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios will also produce.
