Tonight, “The 100” is going to be capping off an incredibly-crazy season with what is very much going to be a crazy finale, and with that, hopefully also kicking things off for a crazy season 4. That’s a lot of uses of the word “crazy,” but we like to think that it works.
Unfortunately, we just hope that you’re the patient type for when the show returns. The CW revealed its full fall schedule a little bit earlier today, and for the second straight year, the show featuring Eliza Taylor, Henry Ian Cusick, and others was a complete no-show. We can anticipate it coming back against most likely in January and February with a season that is long enough to work for this show, but shorter than the average network drama.
Do we think that “The 100” could theoretically do 22 episodes without a problem? Possibly, but we understand that The CW has limited real estate, and the feeling we’ve gotten from Jason Rothenberg over the years is that he would rather do smaller seasons that are more packed-in than a longer season that spreads some stories out longer than they really need to be. This will make the show feel more like an event when it returns; whether or not it gets the same great ratings it did to start season 3 remains to be seen.
Rest assured that later tonight, we’ll be back with some other coverage of the series, and that includes a full review of all that happens in the finale, and maybe also some more teases for what lies ahead. You’ll be able to check that out by heading over to this link right now.
