According to Bleeding Cool, the synopsis for the premiere episode has already been released. It confirms that the prisoner ship is going to be a major focus. Also, it hints that Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor) will be the Grounder this time around.

Possible spoilers might be ahead. Do not continue reading unless you want to know what to expect from the post-apocalyptic television show.

The 100 Season 5 premiere synopsis explains that when the show returns, six years will have passed since Praimfaya. It is confirmed that the majority of the human race was annihilated by the second apocalypse. Fans saw in the Season 4 finale that Clarke was waiting for friends in space to return. However, instead of seeing the rocket, a prisoner ship comes down to Earth.

“Following the surprising events of the season finale, join The 100 as the critically acclaimed series returns to San Diego for its annual appearance at Comic-Con. More than six years have passed since Praimfaya ravaged the planet, and killed most of the human race. As Clarke waits to hear from the group on the Ark, or in the bunker, a new mystery drops from the sky. Who is in the arriving ship, and are they friends or enemies? One thing is certain, Clarke is now the Grounder!”

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the synopsis for Season 5 was released. It teases not only the prisoner ship, but that there will be a lot of changed characters due to the time they have been apart. Bellamy (Bob Morley) and his sister, Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropoulos), are just one example of this. Also, Clarke will be taking care of a young Nightblood named Madi. However, when she reunites with her friends, she will be torn between doing what is best for Madi and what is best for the Sky Crew.

It has also been reported that Echo (Tasya Teles) has been promoted to a series regular. Viewers are not huge fans of the character because she has betrayed Bellamy multiple times. However, being up in the rocket with Bellamy, Raven Reyes (Lindsey Morgan) and others may change Echo for the better. At least, that is what everyone is hoping.
