Following a turbulent third season of The 100, CW chief Mark Pedowitz is standing by the post-apocalyptic drama, addressing the controversies that plagued the series in season 3.
After Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and Clarke (Eliza Taylor) finally consummated their relationship, Lexa tragically died in a freak accident. There was a swift outcry from fans, particularly among the LGBT community, who were upset a show as progressive as The 100 seemingly turned to the TV trope of killing off a lesbian character just after a particularly happy moment in her life.
Just announced at Comic-Con: The 100 has promoted Zach McGowan to series regular for season 4!
McGowan joined the CW drama in the third season as Roan, the son of the late Ice Queen Nia (Brenda Strong). He became the King of the Ice Nation upon her death.
If it’s not one group of people trying to kill on the Ground, it’s another. And just when you think they might all be able to get along, the Earth itself is trying to kill its inhabitants. Things are not looking great for The 100 crew heading into season 4. Hopefully we’ll receive a bit of good news at Friday’s Comic-Con panel, but until then, here’s a reminder of what went down in the season 3 finale.
Following a season of LGBTQ deaths on shows like The 100, The Walking Dead, Empire and Blindspot, writers and producers from shows including Faking It, Shameless, The Originals and The 100 gathered at the ATX Festival on Saturday morning to address the Bury Your Gays trope.
This is the way the world ends This is the way the world ends This is the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper.
The 100 launched during The CW’s midseason lineup in 2014. Although the first two seasons went under the radar, acclaim for the show began picking up before the show’s third season premiere this spring. Since then, the sci-fi show has earned a rabid following, including actress Emma Caulfield. An alum of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she is no stranger to intense fan bases. On the evening of the finale, Caulfield explains how her love affair with this post-apocalyptic show about beautiful teens began. (Mild spoilers included.)
How do you solve a problem like A.L.I.E.? Well, that’s the problem: No one knows. But in Thursday’s season finale of The 100, someone is going to have to figure some way to stop the world-destroying AI because she’s on a path to… well, destroy the world once again.
You know those days where everything just goes wrong? And just when you think things are starting to go your way, everything turns horrible yet again? That’s exactly where we find our 100 kids this week. After the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day they had in “Red Sky at Morning” things only get worse in “Perverse Instantiation – Part One.”
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
This ancient proverb has helped solve plenty of famous conflicts: World War II, the Cold War, John Tucker Must Die, something in Game of Thrones probably. In “Red Sky at Morning,” two groups of people are trying to work together with their enemy’s enemy — and it has varied results.
There is nothing quite like a song to make you feel nostalgic. And a good flashback doesn’t hurt either. Tonight’s tune of choice was “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons. Well, I should say a cover of it. I was one of the few people who didn’t hate that particular part of the pilot. (Does this mean I have bad taste in music? Probably.) But I feel confident in saying I’m one of…everyone who loved tonight’s slowed-down cover playing over the Ark and Dropship flashbacks.
