Set to debut in February, the fourth season throws a new curveball at the survivors: Earth is dying, and may not be salvageable.
Taking Supernatural's old spot on the schedule, The 100 will be more visible than ever to comic book fans as Arrow will be the show's new lead-in starting in the spring.
For fans who might want to get caught up, The CW already has the first 3 seasons available in their entirety on Netflix.
When nuclear Armageddon destroys civilization on Earth, the only survivors are those on the 12 international space stations in orbit at the time. Three generations later, the 4,000 survivors living on a space ark of linked stations see their resources dwindle and face draconian measures established to ensure humanity's future. Desperately looking for a solution, the ark's leaders send 100 juvenile prisoners back to the planet to test its habitability. Having always lived in space, the exiles find the planet fascinating and terrifying, but with the fate of the human race in their hands, they must forge a path into the unknown.
Among the show's writers and producers are Julie and Shawna Benson, the sisters who currently pen DC's best-selling Batgirl and the Birds of Prey.
Season 4 of The 100 premieres Wednesday, February 1 at 9:00pm ET/PT on The CW.
