The 100: Season 8 – Everything You Should Know

THE 100
The 100

Dystopian, post-apocalyptic futures, space travel, and rebellious teens — all great ingredients to make a hit sci-fi drama. And that’s exactly what The 100 did. After encountering cannibals, secret societies, and literal aliens, Clarke and the remaining survivors are finally back on Earth. They’re now ready to live out the rest of their days in peace. Unless The 100: Season 8 comes around, of course.

But will it even come, or have the producers decided to give Clarke’s group some well-earned rest? Here’s everything you should know about The 100: Season 8.

 

When Is The 100: Season 8 Coming Out?

The 100 series showrunner, Jason Rothenberg, made a tweet before the Season 6 finale announcing that Season 7 was going to be the final season. So, unfortunately for the fans but fortunately for the surviving humans, The 100: Season 8 is not coming.

The ending of the show as it is is poetic. It’s a show about saving the last remnants of humanity, but in the end, humanity as we know it really did end. Plus, Episode 16 of Season 7 is the 100th episode of The 100. You couldn’t ask for a better way to end it.

 

What Could The 100: Season 8 Be About?

They did a really good job tying up loose ends for the series finale. So much so that now it’s kind of hard to think of a way for The 100: Season 8 to continue without it feeling forced.

The Earth is now safe and habitable. All the other humans are gone, so there won’t be anyone out there plotting something against Clarke. In fact, there won’t be anyone out there plotting anything in general.

The only real threat that could harm them is if a new race of aliens suddenly shows up and they dislike humans for some reason. That, or one of the remaining survivors turns evil, which is a really cheap way to keep the show going.

Maybe the show could be about the survivors finding some way to restart the population. They’re all sterile now, so traditional methods won’t work. Maybe they can find a way through cloning or some other sci-fi plot device. That way they can safeguard humanity’s future.

Or maybe it’s for the best to leave the last remaining humans at peace.

 

The 100: Season 8 Cast

It’s unlikely for The 100: Season 8 to come, but if it does come, the main characters would likely be the 14 surviving humans. There’s also Picasso the dog, who is an absolute must for any sequels.

Here are all the cast members who played those survivors and would be the probable cast in some future sequel.

  • Eliza Taylor as Clarke Griffin
  • Marie Avgeropoulos as Octavia Blake
  • Lindsey Morgan as Raven Reyes
  • Tasya Teles as Echo
  • Richard Harmon as John Murphy
  • Shelby Flannery as Hope Diyoza
  • Shannon Kook as Jordan Green
  • Adina Porter as Indra
  • Luisa d’Oliveira as Emori
  • Jessica Harmon as Niylah
  • Tati Gabrielle as Gaia
  • Sachin Sahel as Eric Jackson
  • Jarod Joseph as Nathan Miller
  • Jason Diaz as Levitt

 

Where To Watch The 100 In The US

The story might be all wrapped up, but if you ever feel the need for a rewatch, here you go. All previous seasons of The 100 are available to US viewers through Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Netflix, and Vudu.

And hey, if the producers ever decide to come back and make The 100: Season 8, these are the platforms to keep an eye on.

 

Where To Watch The 100 In The UK

For UK viewers, Seasons 1 to 7 of The 100 are available on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, and Sky TV.

There are other sources, but they’re missing a couple of seasons. ITVX only has the first five seasons, and Rakuten only has the first two.

 

How Many Episodes Will The 100: Season 8 Have?

Should the producers change their mind and make The 100: Season 8, it would likely have 13 or 16 episodes.

Seasons 1, 4, 5, and 6 have 13 episodes each, while Seasons 2, 3, and 7 have 16 episodes each.

Although, the numbering of the episodes was strategically planned so the show could end with a neat 100 episodes. Once they’ve crossed a hundred and decided to keep going, they could change up the episode count.

 

Does The 100: Season 8 Have A Trailer?

No, there isn’t one. The decision to end The 100 at Season 7 was made before Season 7 even began. It wouldn’t have made any sense for the producers to make a trailer for a season they weren’t planning to make.
