Even as The 100 prepares for its Season 6 premiere on The CW, a spinoff prequel series may be in development to show the early days of the nuclear apocalypse, taking place decades before the events of the first season.
Appearing on a panel with the cast at WonderCon 2019 last weekend, creator and showrunner Jason Rothenberg fielded a question from the audience on what sort of spinoff they would like to see.
"I think I would want to see one where... the beginning of the spinoff is the first bomb going off," star Richard Harmon answered. "And everything of like the people who become the Grounders, the people who survive, them dealing with kind of everything. I think that would be spinoff I'd want to see."
Harmon's response led to Rothenberg alluding that a potential spinoff may be in the works at The CW. "We may be working on something. Can't talk about it," Rothenberg teased. "I'll probably get in trouble for saying that."
With traces of humanity surviving after a nuclear holocaust, rebuilding civilization in the wilderness, a spinoff in that era would certainly have plenty of material to cover, should it get the green light.
The 100 returns on The CW for its sixth season starting April 30 at 9 pm ET/PT. The series stars Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Marie Avgeropoulos, Bob Morley, Henry Ian Cusick, Lindsey Morgan, Richard Harmon, Shannon Kook and Tasya Teles.
