The 100 Season 6 will premiere Tuesday, April 30 at 9/8c on The CW.
In Canada, where to watch the show depends on where you live. I watch it on Netflix, one day after it airs on The CW Network. Some cable subscriptions may offer it so check with your service to see if they carry the show.
For viewers like me, who have watched since the beginning, we know from the season five finale that Clarke, and gang, arrived at a new planet after traveling for more than 100 years while in cryo-sleep.
The trailer for season six gives us plenty to worry about over the fate of the new arrivals. Everything looks beautiful, but you know there’s trouble ahead. The 100 just can’t catch a break.
Are you looking forward to the return of this series?
The setting is 97 years after a devastating nuclear apocalypse wipes out almost all life on Earth. Thousands of people live in a space station orbiting Earth, which they call the Ark, constructed of connecting space stations and spacecraft. Three generations have been born in space, bringing the population of the Ark beyond carrying capacity. The future is jeopardized by over-population.
100 juvenile detainees are sent to Earth in a last attempt to determine whether it is habitable. They discover that some survived the apocalypse: the Grounders, who live in clans locked in a power struggle; the Reapers, another group of Grounders who have been turned into cannibals by the Mountain Men; and the Mountain Men, who live in Mount Weather, descended from those who locked themselves away before the apocalypse. Under the leadership of Bellamy and Clarke, the 100 attempt to survive the harsh surface conditions, battle hostile Grounders and establish communication with the Ark.
Most of the remaining 48 of the 100 are captured and taken to Mount Weather by the Mountain Men. It is eventually revealed that the Mountain Men are transfusing blood from imprisoned Grounders as an anti-radiation treatment as their bodies have not adapted to deal with the remaining radiation on Earth.
Medical tests of the 100 show an even more potent anti-radiation efficacy: their bone marrow will allow the Mountain Men to survive outside containment. The inhabitants of the Ark have crash-landed various stations on Earth and begun an alliance with the Grounders to save groups of people, naming the main settlement at Alpha Station “Camp Jaha”.
Alpha Station, renamed Arkadia, comes under new management when Pike, a former teacher and mentor on the Ark, is elected as chancellor and begins a war with the Grounders. Pike uses very dangerous methods, which further damages their already fragile relationship with the grounders.
An artificial intelligence named A.L.I.E. – who was commanded to make life better for mankind – is revealed to have responded by solving the problem of human overpopulation by launching the nuclear apocalypse that devastated Earth. The AI takes over the minds of nearly everyone in Arkadia and Polis, the capital city of the Grounders. In the season three finale, Clarke manages to destroy A.L.I.E.
Hundreds of nuclear reactors around the world are melting down due to decades of neglect that will result in 96 per cent of the planet becoming uninhabitable. Clarke and the others search for ways to survive the coming wave of radiation. When it is discovered that Nightbloods, descendants of first, original Nightbloods, including Becca – the creator of A.L.I.E. and the first Grounder commander – can metabolize radiation, Clarke and the others attempt to recreate the formula, but fail to test it.
An old bunker is discovered that can protect 1,200 people for over 5 years from the new apocalypse; each of the twelve clans select a hundred people to stay in the bunker. A small group decides to return to space and attempt to survive in the remnants of the Ark. However, Clarke, who is now a nightblood remained on the Earth’s surface alone.
Six years after the meltdown of the nuclear reactors, a prisoner transport ship arrives in the only green spot left on Earth, where Clarke and Madi, a Nightblood Grounder who also survived the wave of radiation that swept the planet after the meltdown, have been living. Those who survived in space and in the bunker have returned safely on the ground.
A struggle for the Shallow Valley between the prisoners and a new, united clan, known as Wonkru, begins. Later, the heroes must find a way to prevent another disaster. In the fifth-season finale the valley is destroyed, rendering Earth uninhabitable, and the remaining humans travel to a new planet to begin their lives.
