Wedding bells are ringing for The 100 co-stars Eliza Taylor and Bob Morley. The two announced their nuptials on social media with heartfelt messages to each other as well as requests for kindness and respect from fans.
The 100 is a science fiction television show that began on the CW in 2014. It is loosely based off of the book series by Kass Morgan. The show shares the same name as the first book. The 100 takes place in the year 2149, after a nuclear apocalypse has killed all of Earth’s inhabitants. One hundred criminals, who were born and raised in space stations, are sent back to Earth to test its survivability. Among the one hundred are Clarke Griffin, played by Eliza Taylor, and Bellamy Blake, played by Bob Morley. The two characters struggled with one another and fans loved the tension between them. Fans of the pair had hoped for the two, commonly referred to as “Bellarke”, to have a relationship.
Taylor and Morley appear to value their privacy. The only picture shared from the couple’s special day is an image of their hands, showcasing the dress, rings, and bouquet.

To say fans were surprised would be an understatement. Neither Taylor nor Morley ever confirmed they were dating before sharing their wedding news. It is unclear how long the two have been in a relationship. Fans were shocked by the announcement and quick to share their excitement online.

The 100 is currently airing its sixth season now on the CW. This season shows the characters exploring a new planet that is more dangerous than anticipated. The danger arrives from beings who already lived there. The inhabitants become homicidal during solar eclipses. However, showrunner Jason Rothenberg warned fans at the start of the season, “nobody has any f–king clue where this season is going… the big mystery of the season — the real story — hasn’t even been touched upon.”
A seventh season has been confirmed by the network. The renewal came in January before season six began airing, so little is known about season seven. It is too early to speculate whether or not season seven will be the show’s last. Rothenberg has said, “We tell a different story every year so we don’t get bored with it. I still have an end story in mind, but I don’t know when that end is going to be and I feel very, very confident that I’ll get to tell it eventually.”
