The post-apocalyptic world has the heart of science fiction, horror, and zombie series. The shows of these categories are incomplete without it. Typically we have watched sci-fi genres that included the future centuries, aliens, space ships, and the celestial world. But we have got you a series that features of a post-apocalyptic world and also has science fiction elements in it. We are talking about, The 100.
It is an American series that has provided a reason to fall for such shows. One must have watched this series at least once and if not, let me ask you a question, are you seriously a fan of such types of web series? Developed by Jason Rothenberg, The 100 has been adapted from a novel by Kass Morgan, entitled the same. Vancouver was the place where most of the shooting took place. The 100 is available in several seasons and after the latest installment, i.e. season 7, fans are waiting to hear about the next part. Suddenly, the show disappeared and we were not hearing any announcement about the future. It was making the entire situation more confusing. So, we decided to come up with a post that will clarify all the doubts pertaining to The 100 season 8, release date, plot, and cast.
The 100 Season 8 Release Date
It was on 19th March 2014 when the first episode of the first season was released on the broadcasting network, The CW. With the final episode, this debut ended on 11th June 2014. It comprised 13 episodes in total. Very soon, The CW restore the series for another installment, and in the same year on 22nd October, we witnessed the first episode of this part. The penultimate season started premiering on 30th April 2019 and ran till 6th August 2019. The latest edition that we have watched to date was released on 20th May 2020 and it lasted till 30th September 2020.
Now coming straight to the point, The 100 season 8 has undergone an unexpected situation. In August 2019, it was officially announced that season 7 would be the final part and the show will not be revived further. This means that the journey of The 100 has come to an end. Interestingly, the final episode of all was the hundredth chapter that somewhere explains why this American TV show was titled in such a manner. All the seven installments have summed up themselves in 100 chapters. We are not sure but it seems like the creators would have already planned it.
We are saying so because this abrupt cancellation should not have blamed the ratings as the series has managed to maintain its popularity but it had a decline in its viewership scale from the beginning. But despite this fact, the audience reception is quite fair. On Rotten Tomatoes, the average audience score is 66 % while it has received a rating of 7.6 out of 10 on IMDb.
The 100 Season 8 Cast
The main cast includes Eliza Taylor in the role of Clark Griffin. Bob Morley was playing the character of Bellamy Blake, Paige Turco appeared as Abigail “Abby” Griffin, Henry Ian Cusick portrayed the role of Marcus Kane, and Lindsay Morgan made an appearance as Raven Reyes. Further, the series was starring Christopher Larkin, Thomas McDonell, Eli Goree, Devon Bostick, and Richard Harmon as Monty Green, Finn Collins, Wells Jaha, Jasper Jordan, and John Murphy, respectively.
In addition to these personalities, many more actors were on the list of the cast that includes Tasya Teles, Ricky Whittle, Isaiah Washington, and Zach McGowan. The list of cast members was quite long so listing all of them would make the post so monotonous and it will be boring for you too.
The 100 season 8 could have been released with the previous cast and most of the actors would have reprised their roles.
The 100 Season 8 Plot
Due to nuclear war, life on earth was endangered and ultimately the human civilization vanished away. There is a spaceship rotating about the earth’s axis. Some of the people who managed to survive in that deadly war and now living in that spaceship. Everything was going fine until their support system began failing after 97 years of that war. They wanted to find a way that can resolve their issue. Even though the earth was destroyed badly, some people were sent back to the planet to analyze whether the situation on Earth is favorable for their survival or not. Upon reaching the planet, they come to know about some people who survived the war and are living there.
This was the central theme upon which the story was based and in all the seasons, it was carried forward. The 100 season 8 should have picked up from the point season 7 left off.
