‘The 100’ season 3 spoilers: First look at premiere, Shawn Mendes appearance

The 100 -Fans of “The 100” have certainly been waiting for a long time already to see the third season; The CW didn’t put it on the fall schedule, and this is after season 2 ended at midseason last year.

Luckily, the wait is almost over, and we’ve got some of the first details below for “Wanheda: Part One” below (per SpoilerTV):

“Three months have passed since the tragedy at Mount Weather and our heroes learn that a bounty has been put on Clarke’s (Eliza Taylor) head. Unbeknownst to Clarke, a team led by Bellamy (Bob Morley) and Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) journeys deep into Grounder territory to save her. Meanwhile, Murphy (Richard Harmon) finds his way to the mansion and discovers a very different Jaha (Isaiah Washington) on a very different mission.”

You probably heard already that singer Shawn Mendes is going to be guest-starring in what is probably a move to court some additional viewers to the show, and we’re all for that if it turns out to be a success. This is one of those shows that seems to be perennially on the bubble for The CW, and it needs to deliver a solid performance this time around to compete. The network is in an interesting place right now in that it has some low-rated shows in “Jane the Virgin” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” but there may be a certain hesitancy to actually cancel them because of critical acclaim.

One thing that could help “The 100” out? Getting to premiere after “Legends of Tomorrow,” one of the most-hyped series of the year.
