The 100 is hurtling towards its conclusion, which means the endgame is in sight, but what were the priorities heading into the final season? Well, The 100’s showrunner, Jason Rothenberg, has explained what took precedence when it came time to break the last chapter of the show’s seven-season story.
For showrunner Jason Rothenberg, filling in blanks that were created earlier in The 100’s run was one of the major elements that the drama wanted to address as it finished its run. On tying it all together, Jason Rothenberg told The 100’s Comic-Con@Home 2020 panel:
What does this mean for The 100’s ending? Jason Rothenberg mentions his desire to make a statement with the conclusion of The 100, which he has alluded to before. Humanity might have taken some tough hits during the drama’s run, but Rothenberg promises there is more to be said on the topic. After all, there are characters on the show that have embodied the elements of human nature more than others.
For instance, Murphy has come a long way since the beginning. Having had his desire for self-preservation tested, he's experiencing personal growth and has chosen a more heroic path in the process.
It'll be interesting to see how certain characters’ endings express what The 100 is trying to say with its final season. Interestingly, Richard Harmon’s idea for closing Murphy's story was used, which is a pretty big deal. Of course, there are other critical journeys taking place besides Murphy’s on The 100. Jordan is also going through one, as the final season trudges forward. And of course, there's also Bellamy’s storyline.
Fresh off of the carnage The 100 recently dealt out, time will tell how all of the things the show prioritized will take effect. But with The 100 aiming to resolve mysterious plot points hinted at in the past, it should find favor with longtime viewers.
For those wanting to avoid how Lost sidestepped resolving all of its various mysteries during its final bow, this should be welcome news. It won't be an easy task, as The 100 had a lot to check off its list -- all while prepping its prequel spinoff. So let's hope for the best!
New episodes of The 100 air Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. Following the conclusion of the sci-fi drama, this fall’s premieres will debut. To watch all of the loose ends currently untied on The 100 check out past seasons on Netflix. They are there with content arriving in 2020.
