The 100 Season 8: Is it Officially Cancelled? Everything You Need To Know!
The future of the post-apocalyptic series, The 100, has been uncertain since its season 7 finale. In 2014, the first season of the American sci-fi, action, and drama series debuted, and it immediately acquired popularity. Based on the same-titled novel series by Kass Morgan, the series received favorable reviews from both audiences and critics. The 100 has a 7.6/10 rating on IMDB.
Fans have been left wondering if there will be a season 8 to follow. With such a long wait between seasons and no official news from CW, viewers are anxious to know whether the season 8 beloved show is coming back.
Is Season 8 of The 100 Cancelled?
The hit CW network series The 100 has recently been receiving a lot of attention for its upcoming eighth season. Unfortunately, the news is unsuitable for show fans. According to premieredates.com, it appears that Season 8 of The 100 is officially canceled.
According to a Deadline interview with series creator Jason Rothenberg, he and his writers had planned to end the program after the seventh season for a long time.
“Once, it started to seem like it was in it for the long haul. We weren’t sure about that ending until approximately the end of season five.”
The COVID-19 pandemic sadly stopped the seventh season’s production. After eight episodes, Season 7 should have a total of 16 episodes. We cannot guarantee when it will be available for viewing. The series will be unable to air in May 2020 owing to the outbreak. However, the last season of the popular series is still slated to debut in the fall.
With #The100 Season 6 finale just days away, I have some bittersweet news to share: Season 7 will be our last. We are eternally grateful to WB & CW for always allowing us to tell our story the way we want to & to wrap the show on our terms. What an incredible ride this has been!

This news is a surprise to fans eagerly awaiting the eighth season since the seventh ended in September 2020. After seven successful seasons and loyal fan bases across the globe, viewers were expecting another thrilling installment to follow in 2021. However, this will not be happening, as CW network executives recently announced the cancellation of The 100’s eighth season due to creative differences between them and showrunner Jason Rothenberg.
Season 8 of The 100 may never occur, but there is always a chance for a revival given how widespread the practice has become, and The 100 has been a consistent performer for the network. However, fans may now anticipate the prequel series to The 100, which had a backdoor pilot in season seven.
