“The 100”, the CW’s hit post apocalyptic science fiction drama, based on the book series by author Kass Morgan, will not be back until next year, prompting fans of the show to speculate as to what will be happening next to their favorite characters. However, during this year’s Comic- Con, the cast and executive producer of the show came together in panels and interviews over the weekend, and gave fans a few hints as to what to expect in the upcoming third season.
WARNING: This article may contain spoilers for the second season and the upcoming third season. Read on to learn more about what will happen next.
During “The 100” panel at the San Diego Comic- Con on Friday, executive producer Jason Rothenberg announced that the show will open several months after the events of season two, The Hollywood Reporter cited.
Actress Eliza Taylor, who portrays the character Clarke Griffin in the show, told Showbiz Junkies, in an interview posted on Spoiler TV, that “The 100” season 3 will open three months later.
Rothenberg went on to say that this was necessary in order for the show to shift back to their science fiction roots, which will deal heavily with the artificial intelligence named A.L.I.E. that Chancellor Theolonius Jaha (Isaiah Washington) discovered in the season finale. He then went on to say that fans should expect to learn a little bit more about what exactly happened to Earth right before the apocalypse happened.
This means that there will be two plots going on at the same time, very much like the second season. One plot in the second season revolved around the Sky People and Grounders merging together to rescue their friends from Mount Weather, while the other storyline was about John Murphy’s (Richard Harmon) and Jaha’s journey to the legendary City of Light.
In the third season of “The 100,” while one storyline will focus on A.L.I.E., the other storyline will focus on the aftermath of the second season’s events and the continued co-existence between the Grounders and the Sky People. However, according to TV Line, fans can expect that Jaha will be a major player this season, and will have some big moments.
With regards to Clarke, Eliza Taylor mentioned that when viewers see her again, she’ll still be on her “walkabout” and will be on the verge of losing her mind. Rothernberg teased that Alycia Debnam-Carey, despite her commitment to AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” will be back for the third season. The actress said that Clarke is still mad at Lexa for betraying her at the last minute, which means that a Lexa versus Clarke showdown will prove to be very explosive.
Rickly Whittle, who portrays the Grounder Lincoln, also hinted that more of the politics within the Grounder factions will be seen. He also said that Lincoln and Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropolous) will be trying to find a home for themselves at Camp Jaha. However, this will prove to be challenging, as the actress admitted that she had found a little bit of herself when she joined the Grounders in the second season. The actress then hinted that both Octavia and Clarke will have some issues to resolve from the past season, and that both will be in “positions of leadership” come the third season.
Actress Lindsey Morgan said that Raven Reyes will be slowly rebuilding her life, and recovering from the injuries that she had incurred during the second season finale. According to TV Line, the actress is looking forward to portraying a character with a disability, as Raven will have to learn how to do things with her new limitations.
Bellamy Blake (Bob Morley) will still be at Camp Jaha. Morley believes that Bellamy has been managing to lead without Clarke, although he still sorely needs her as a partner.
