Ninety-seven years ago, nuclear Armageddon decimated planet Earth, destroying civilization and the only survivors were the 400 inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were in orbit at the time. Three generations have been born in space, the survivors now number 4,000, and resources are running out on their dying “Ark”.
The leaders of the Ark secretly exile a group of 100 juvenile prisoners to the Earth’s surface to test whether it’s habitable and are faced with difficult decisions about life, death and the continued existence of the human race. The 100 must find a way to transcend their differences, unite and forge a new path on a wildly changed Earth that’s primitive, intense and teeming with the unknown.
The 100 premieres on Wednesday, March 19 @ 9PM on The CW.
