The story of this apocalyptic drama series revolves around criminal adolescents who are sent to earth from Ark, a spaceship.

Besides all these, season 7 also explores a wormhole that connects 6 planets. It is called Anomaly. After showcasing a few more big turnovers, it finally ended on a remarkable note. So is it an indication that The 100 won’t be returning to screens? Well, let us find out in this article.

It has been a long decade since the earth was hit by a nuclear apocalypse wiping off human life. Those who survived the attack now live in Ark, a space station which is revolving around the planet. 3 generations have been born in this space station. But now the living conditions here are becoming impossible due to malfunctioning of life support mechanisms. Witnessing such problematic conditions, around 100 young people are sent to earth with a motive to know whether there are any possible conditions left to lead a life or at least to pick resources that would prove beneficial to the people remaining in Ark.
When these young juveniles enter the earth and start exploring for the mission they have been sent for, they discover people who have survived the post-apocalyptic attack. These people are formed in different groups – the Grounders living in clans, the Reapers who have become flesh-eating of other beings by Mountain men. They reside in Mount Weather and have originated from those who have secured themselves before the massive destruction took place. The juveniles follow Bellamy and Clarke leading the group and indulge in the hardcore struggle for survival in severe situations. They pick up challenges in combating aggressive grounders and developing links with the spaceship Ark.
