Fans of “The 100” on The CW more than likely know at this point that they’ve been facing at least some bad news for a little while now. How else do you describe the fact that the show is currently on a rather-lengthy hiatus? It ended early during the season, and it is also not going to be coming back until at some point in midseason. Given the events at Mount Weather and the new direction the show teased going out of season 2, that makes the waiting period just a little more horrendous.
Hopefully, we can at least alleviate some of that today with a pretty fantastic look at both the show’s past and future. In a recent post on Tumblr, writer-producer Aaron Ginsburg posted what appears to be the official logline for the upcoming third season. While it may not reveal much in terms of character spoilers, it is a reminder of everything we’ve seen, and also what will be coming up next:
“For two seasons, the refugees of The 100 sent to Earth have been at war. First with themselves, then with the Grounders, and finally with Mount Weather. Many have lost their lives along the way. All have lost their innocence. They have learned the hard way that in the fight for survival, there are no heroes and no villains. There is only the living and the dead. But now the war is over. The battle against Mount Weather has been won. The prisoners have returned home to a world seemingly at peace, but can they find peace within themselves after what they had to do to escape? And is there more to life than just surviving?
“Unfortunately, their newfound sense of normalcy will be short-lived, and their lives will be changed forever, as threats both old and new test their loyalties, push them past their limits, and make them question what it truly means to be human. First, they fought to survive. Then, they fought for their friends. Now, they will fight for the human race…”
One of the great things regarding “The 100” is that this has always felt like a show with stakes. Regardless of how long the series ends up staying on the air, we greatly admire the fact that they continue to push things to the limit in terms of the storytelling, and they are never willing to just draw things out in hopes of telling something later. There’s always a concrete sense of urgency.
