The 100 Season 6 exceeded the expectations of the fans when it announced that it had earned around 5 million dollars through its media release reports. Six seasons of this epic show has earned its fair share of admirers.
Various dialogues at different points of the show have been well quoted and used in a variety of other shows, which has aired simultaneously. The creator of the show Mark Pedowitz remarked that the Director Jason Rothenberg always had a finale in mind, which in hindsight led to the beginning of a Season 7.
Jason, in the various interviews that he has done for the show, has already said a lot of times that this show is very close to his heart. Excerpts from some of his interviews are given below just to make the fans understand the passion that the makers have for this particular show.
In an interview, Jason said, “This show has been like my child. I have nurtured each and every component of this show with utmost love, care and diligence. After the filming of Season 6, I felt that I had done most of what I wanted to achieve before starting this show. The characters I developed, the script preparation and the dedication by the cast members has made this venture such a successful one with a global outreach. Thus I decided that I would draw a line to it after I had done directing the 7th season”.
Further Interviews have also found Rothenberg saying,” In season 7, we will explore all the unexplored territories that the show has not been able to venture into. It will be the culmination of all the themes that lie at the ethos of the show and have been touched upon in the previous seasons”.
A variety of statements by the cast members in interviews and other social media handles also prove that the shooting of the last season was a very emotional experience. Shelby Flannery, who plays the character of Hope, said in an interview, “I have been a part of this epic franchise for two years in a row now. It has been like my second home. I being the most junior member of this cast have constantly been subjected to showering of love and affection. Other cast members, my directors have guided me through every step of the process.
During the filming of the 100th episode of the show all of us became pretty emotional. After the Director had said cut, we gathered around hugging each other. A sudden realization dawned upon us that the show which has been such a major part of all our lives is coming to an end”.
The 100 Season 7 Plot Details
The entire TV series is adapted from a novel written by Kass Morgan. Jason Rothenberg, the creator of the show, however, has always believed in adding his tale of a twist to the entire story in order to spice up the storyline and make it more interesting. Season 7 is expected to pick up from the storyline on which Season 6 ended. It will majorly focus on the Anomaly.
Now for those fans who don’t exactly know what an Anomaly is, it is an interdimensional being. Its presence in dangerous as it resides in the gateway to the portal of inter dimension travel and is ready to devour any being that comes across him. Since the show is nearing its end, the 17 episodes in this season would majorly focus around the presence of Anomaly.
Rise of Hope would also give a major lift to the plot component of the show. Jason, in his recent interview, remarked by saying that Hope would be in her early twenties. She is discovering the way around for her kind. Three days ago, she was only a fetus, and just within this short period of time she became a self-sufficient lady. Her journey through the perils of life and encountering Anomaly as a malevolent force would be one of the prime components the show has to offer.
In a long interview scheduled with the creator of the show, Jason Rothenberg, several facts about the show has come to the fore. Jason said that the creative department of the show has taken up the call of killing the characters one by one and ending the premise of the show. He said that a variety of themes were already explored by them and they also found out that they had exhausted all their resources in making the characters as intense and deep as possible. The theory of time travel has also been tested previously and thus, there is a minor chance that the theme will again be looked into by the makers during this season as well.

Jason Rothenberg, in his interview, was talking about the complexity which is brought to the screen by Marie’s character. He said that although he killed off the character, in this inter-dimensional world of beings, there is a fair possibility of resurrection for the characters.
