The Premise
It’s been 97 years since nuclear Armageddon decimated the Earth, destroying civilization.  The only survivors were the 400 inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were lucky enough to be in orbit at the time.  Since then, three generations have been born in space and the population has swelled to the thousands on the “Ark” ─ the 12 stations now linked together and repurposed to keep the survivors alive.  Life on the Ark is hard.  Population is tightly controlled, resources are severely rationed and all crimes, no matter how petty, are punishable by death—unless you’re under 18.  Perhaps, they weren’t so lucky after all.

As our story begins, life in space has just gotten even harder.  Unbeknownst to the general population, the Ark is dying.  In a desperate attempt to prevent the extinction of humanity, a group of 100 juvenile prisoners are secretly exiled to the ground to test whether the atmosphere can once again support life.  The youth have quite literally inherited the Earth.

The Cast
Among the 100 young exiles are Clarke (newcomer Eliza Taylor), the bright teenage daughter of the Ark’s chief medical officer; the daredevil Finn (Thomas McDonell, “Suburgatory”); the brother/sister duo of Bellamy (newcomer Bob Morley) and Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos, “50/50”), whose illegal sibling status has always led them to flaunt the rules; the lighthearted Jasper (Devon Bostick, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules”); and the resourceful Monty (Christopher Larkin, “Squad 85”).

Technologically blind to what’s happening on the planet below them, the Ark’s leaders — Clarke’s widowed mother, Abby (Paige Turco, “Person of Interest,” “Damages”); Chancellor Jaha (Isaiah Washington, “Blue Caprice,” “Grey’s Anatomy”); and his shadowy second-in-command, Kane (Henry Ian Cusick, “Scandal,” “Lost”) — are faced with difficult decisions about life, death and the continued existence of the human race.

Who’s Running The Show
Based on the book series by Kass Morgan, THE 100 is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Jason Rothenberg (upcoming “Twilight Zone” feature), Elizabeth Craft & Sarah Fain (“The Vampire Diaries”), Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries”) and Gina Girolamo (“The Lying Game”).  Matthew Miller (“Chuck”) serves as consulting producer.

The 100 Season 2 premiering October 22 and airing Wednesdays at 9/8c on The CW.
