The best sci-fi show on TV returns Wednesday and it's on The CW. Though it initially appeared to be yet another post-apocalyptic teen drama (love triangles and all), The 100 quickly set itself apart from the pack with its gritty realism and complex world-building. When the series returns for its second season, it continues the momentum of last year's (literally) explosive finale and builds on it by introducing viewers to the mysterious underground compound Mount Weather. But could this really be the 100's salvation? Find out what creator Jason Rothenberg has to say about this, who survived and what's to come.
Things are not looking up for The 100. The Grounders are heading their way, their weapons expert has been shot and that jerk Murphy wasted all their gun powder. But these kids aren't ones to go down without a fight. Ahead of Wednesday's season finale (9/8c, The CW), creator Jason Rothenberg spoke to TVGuide.com about how the hundred will fare in the bigshowdown with the Grounders, the likelihood of the Ark making it to Earth and more.
They're young, they're hot and they'll murder you without a second's hesitation.
Thanks to The Hunger Games and Divergent, dangerous children have gone from things to be feared to the epitome of modern-day protagonists— something the CW is currently cashing in on with the post-apocalyptic drama The 100.
Based on a young adult novel of the same name, the series follows a group of underage kids who grow increasingly violent since leaving the grasp of adult civilization. But unlike its blockbuster predecessors, the majority of violence on The 100 isn't spawned from a need for survival or a fight for justice, nor are those who commit it romanticized as heroes.
