Is there ever a good way to find out that one of your favorite shows will be ending? It's only natural to want something that you love to go on forever. I know how devoted fans of 'The 100' are, so this news over the weekend has got to be difficult.
Series creator Jason Rothenberg made the announcement that the show would end with the upcoming seventh season. Here's the the tweet, in case you missed it:
With #The100 Season 6 finale just days away, I have some bittersweet news to share: Season 7 will be our last. We are eternally grateful to WB & CW for always allowing us to tell our story the way we want to & to wrap the show on our terms. What an incredible ride this has been!— Jason Rothenberg (@JRothenbergTV) August 4, 2019
Note the key words there, "on our terms." It seems at though this may have been the plan all along. At the same time, it does feel like the show has had a bit of a new beginning this season, doesn't it? Now we know that it will all have to be wrapped up after one more season. There is no word on if the final season will be given any sort of an extended season or the standard 13 episodes. No matter what, the landscape of The CW network seems like it is definitely changing.
Keep in mind, there are still novels to fall back on. There are four books in the Kass Morgan series, so you won't be completely without Clarke and company. Of course, if you are a diehard fan, you have probably already read those books cover to cover several times. Could this prompt Morgan to possibly write another novel? It's only a matter of time before the fan petitions start, I'm sure.
So I'll ask you this, how do you think 'The 100' should end?
