The 100 prequel is not dead. At least not yet. Recently at the CW Upfronts, network president Mark Pedowitz stated that the prequel has no physical development, but is still a topic of discussion.
In a quote released by Deadline, it was disclosed by the network head that the prequel is still very much in the open.
“There are still discussions going on — it is not done in any way, shape or form,” he said during The CW’s upfront press call. “The discussions are still happening.”-Mark Pedowitz
The backdoor pilot, Anaconda, aired as the eighth episode in the seventh and final season of The 100 last August. The chapter revealed the history of the nuclear war ninety-seven years prior as well as the Grounder culture and its mythology. Its founder, Callie Cadogen invented the language Trigedasleng that is still presently existent.
Whether the original cast of the pilot will return for the potential prequel is unknown as their contracts have since expired.
In the gritty series finale, Clarke is nearly left alone (with Picasso), but her friends returned to human form after giving up transcendence. They’ll spend the rest of their days together, and as the last of the human race. The show ended with a bittersweet message that war will have consequences and negative effects. There should be hope for the future because, without it, life will serve no purpose.
And never ever doubt Bellamy’s trust and love for his people.
If picked up, the prequel will have Jason Rothenberg as executive producer with The 100 EP Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo of Alloy for The 100 producers, Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. TV and CBS Television Studios.
The 100 ended with exactly one hundred episodes and some emotional marks.
Do you think the pilot will be eventually picked up? Why or why not?
