It was confirmed a while ago that The 100’s seventh and final outing would feature a spinoff, giving fans a glimpse of the nuclear apocalypse that led to the destruction of Earth in the first place. The episode would be set before the start of the first season of The 100 and will delve into some of the mysteries and origin stories of the drama.
In the “Anaconda” chapter of The 100, viewers were introduced to a new group of characters trapped at the end of the world, with the keyword “Anaconda” referring to missiles in the air. While viewers will have to wait for confirmation, Rothenberg already has some ideas about the direction of travel for the story.
With that said, let’s take a look at the characters we saw arriving in the last chapter of season 7.
