The end is on the horizon for The 100.
The post-apocalytic sci-fi drama series will officially be coming to a close at the end of seven 7, which is set to run for 16 episodes and will be airing in 2020.
“With The 100 Season 6 finale just days away, I have some bittersweet news to share: Season 7 will be our last,” series creator and executive producer Jason Rothenberg posted on Twitter. “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!”
During the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, The CW president Mark Pedowitz said that this had always been Rothenberg’s plan. “We’ve been very good at listening to our showrunner creators about the right time to end our series,” Pedowitz said.
With 16 more episodes to come after the season 6 finale, it means that the series will be finishing on just the right number. As Rothenberg posted to Twitter…

Loosely based on the book series by Kass Morgan, The 100 follows post-apocalyptic survivors that are sent to Earth to see if it’s inhabitable once again. The hints of a new society begin to emerge, but of course there seems to be only one bad thing after another in store. The cast includes Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Thomas McDonell, Eli Goree, Marie Avgeropoulos, Bob Morley and Kelly Hu, among many others.
The 100 is one of three big shows on The CW coming to an end. Arrow is going to end with its upcoming eighth season and Supernatural will be wrapping up after a lenghy run of 15 seasons.
