Fans are excited for the return of The 100 Season 5 on the small screen.
The post-apocalyptic science fiction drama’s executive producer Jason Rothenberg inked a deal with Warner Bros. Television, and viewers are hoping to see more projects from the showrunner. It is the same television production company behind the hit CW series.
Now, as The 100 Season 5 is expected to be seen in the early part of 2018, fans are gearing up to watch 13 new episodes of the series.
According to J-14, the new season of the television show can be watched on Hulu’s new service called Hulu Live TV. As The CW has ended its contract with Hulu, its users can only watch the series through its Live TV subscription. However, it will be a little pricier compared to a regular Hulu account.
Aside from the new season, viewers can also start binge-watching the series’ previous episodes on Netflix before The 100 Season 5 airs. The entire series, from the first to the fourth installment, are on the streaming network, so fans can see it again without paying anything extra. The release of the new season has yet to be announced.
For viewers who don’t have subscriptions to any of these streaming networks, the last five episodes of the previous season are still up on The CW’s official website.
Meanwhile, Jason Rothenberg will continue doing new seasons of The 100 after signing a “multi-year overall deal” with Warner Bros. Television, Deadline reported.
Aside from the CW television show, the writer-producer will also be doing other projects for the network and cable channels, streaming, and digital platforms through Warner Bros. Television and Warner Horizon Scripted Television. Also, he could produce content via Warner Bros. Animation or through Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital venture, Blue Ribbon Content.
Rothenberg developed The 100, which is based on Kass Morgan’s 2013 novel of the same title. Aside from this series, he also has two other television shows that premiered on The CW. The first one was his 2009 television movie, Body Politic, led by Minka Kelly, Jay Hernandez, and Gabrielle Union. The other was another television movie, Searchers, starred by Marc Blucas, Jeanine Mason, and Zane Holtz.
