The CW has just ordered a fifth season of The 100 which is to premiere sometime in the 2017-18 season.
CW president Mark Pedowitz made the renewal announcement Friday, though an episode count for Season 5 has yet to be determined.
Based on the book series by Kass Morgan, “The 100” is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Jason Rothenberg and Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries”). The series stars Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos, Christopher Larking, Devon Bostick, Isaiah Washington, Henry Ian Cusick, and Zach McGowan.
The 100 is the ninth CW series to score a renewal for the 2017-18 season, joining the likes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural, Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Riverdale. No word yet on the fates of iZombie and The Originals, both of which have new seasons on the way. Additionally, freshmen series Frequency and No Tomorroware not expected to return, though neither has been officially cancelled.
