The CW has announced that their post-apocalyptic series, “The 100“, has been renewed for another season. The show, currently in its fourth season, has remained a solid ratings-earner for the network over the years. The bulk of its viewership actually appears to come from DVR viewings, garnering the series a healthy Live+7 score each week.
Odds are that, much like the current run, the fifth season will once again see a 13-episode order. Given that this will bring it close to the much-coveted syndication goal (80+ episodes), chances are that a sixth season will also be granted, providing the ratings don’t dip too far. With “The 100” now renewed, the fate of only four CW shows remains undecided for the 2017-2018 season: “iZombie“, “Frequency“, “No Tomorrow“, and “The Originals“.
In other news, Netflix has renewed its Lemony Snicket adaptation, “A Series of Unfortunate Events“, for a second season. The Neil Patrick Harris-starring series racked up a lot of critical praise upon arrival earlier this year. While the exact numbers have not been made public, as Netflix rarely shares such data, the series was apparently a big hit for them. The streaming giant confirmed the renewal today.
