The CW network has officially announced the upcoming 7th season outing for The 100 will be the series’ last, ending the show on a high note after an ironic 100 episode run. Series creator Jason Rothenberg confirmed that the show’s previously rumored last seventh season will indeed be the end of the series.
“With #The100 Season 6 finale just days away, I have some bittersweet news to share: Season 7 will be our last,” Rothernberg tweeted. “We are eternally grateful to WB & CW for always allowing us to tell our story the way we want to & to wrap the show on our terms. What an incredible ride this has been!”

Morgan further weighed in on the news:
What a tremendous run! Thanks to @JRothenbergTV, @The100writers, and the incredible cast and crew for seven innovative, mind-bending, electrifying seasons. It was a privilege to watch my space delinquents go on such extraordinary adventures with you. https://t.co/oH2TQDMC74

For five seasons, our heroes did whatever it took to survive on Earth… and nothing worked. Their inability to overcome the instinct to fight caused the destruction of the planet. Now, after 125 years in cryosleep, traveling through the stars, our heroes wake up to a new home, a final gift from their dearly departed friend Monty. A place where they can try again. They’re given one simple task: do better. Be the good guys. With this credo in mind, Clarke and Bellamy lead a group down to this mysterious world, hoping to start anew, to finally find peace. But old habits die hard, and when they discover an idyllic society, it quickly becomes clear that not everything on Sanctum is as perfect as it seems. Despite their determination to do better, threats both seen and unseen, internal and external, will once again force our heroes to fight for their lives and the future of humanity.
Back in April, the series’ seventh season renewal was announced in tandem with other shows in the network’s current line-up such as freshmen series: All American, Roswell, New Mexico and In The Dark. Other CW staples such as Arrow and Supernatural will also be ending during the 2019-2020 season, while iZombie, Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend end their series’ runs after this season.

Rothenberg, Leslie Morgenstein executive produce the show, with Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos, Lindsey Morgan, Richard Harmon, Shannon Kook, JR Bourne and Tasya Teles, all starring in major roles.
