(from The CW's press release, May 2014) Season one of THE 100 saw the human race return, after a 97-year exile in space, to a wildly transformed Earth...only to discover that the human race had never truly left. Clarke (Eliza Taylor) found herself forced to lead a band of disposable juvenile delinquents as they faced death at every turn - from a world transformed by radiation, from the fierce Grounders who somehow managed to survive in it, and, perhaps worst of all, from themselves. Alternately challenged and supported by rival leader Bellamy (Bob Morley), the two found common purpose: Survival. Through it all, Finn (Thomas McDonell) was helplessly drawn to Clarke, destroying his long-standing relationship with the brilliant young mechanic, Raven (Lindsey Morgan). Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) got close to a possible enemy Grounder, Lincoln (Ricky Whittle) -- some say too close. Meanwhile, as The 100 fought for their lives on the ground, The Ark's situation was no better. Though Abby (Paige Turco) believed that The 100 were still alive, she didn't have proof and couldn't stop Kane's (Henry Ian Cusick) population reduction. The killing of 320 volunteers and the subsequent realization that it was in error broke Kane and enflamed a revolution on the Ark that Chancellor Jaha (Isaiah Washington), despite his best efforts, was powerless to stop. Both on the ground and in space, the final episodes will reveal the true desperation of their plight, as our heroes risked everything just to stay alive. Noble sacrifices and heartbreaking choices changed everyone forever and left them scattered to the wind. The epic second chapter picks up with the newly returned human race desperate to be reunited. Season two's quest will challenge them beyond anything they have faced before. Hearts will be broken. Lives will be lost. Heroes will be born. 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), Leslie Morgenstein ("The Vampire Diaries") and Gina Girolamo ("The Lying Game").
