The CW Renews 'The 100' for Season 5
The CW is continuing to solidify its future with its ninth renewal for the 2017-2018 TV season. The latest show to join the list is The 100, which has been renewed for season 5.
The 100, currently in its fourth season, has become a solid mid-season staple for the CW. There is no official word on how many episodes the fifth season will last, but the show has typically received either 13 or 16 episodes per season.
With this latest renewal, the CW has almost completely finished its decisions for the current season. Eight other shows have already been renewed: Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural, Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Riverdale. This is the final season for returning shows The Vampire Diaries and Reign, while freshman shows from the Fall ( No Tomorrow and Frequency) are very unlikely to return.
That only leaves two shows left from this season, neither of which has even premiered yet. The Originals and iZombie are the last two pieces of the puzzle for the CW before deciding on which new shows to order.
The 100 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on the CW.
