The Earth was significantly damaged due to an apocalypse that had occurred ninety-seven years ago. Those people, who managed to survive, had to live on twelve stations. All the stations form one large station “The Ark.” Because the resources are very limited, all crimes regardless of what they have they done are ejected into space unless they are under eighteen years old.
Because of the problems with supporting life systems of Ark, one hundred prisoners are sent to the Earth in order to help determine whether it is possible to live on the planet. The program is called “The 100.” Finally, the teens appear on the planet for the first time. They found a military station where they hoped to find any supplies. However, there were other problems that they encountered during their attempt to form a community. The teens discovered that there were other people living on the planet who had managed to survive. Those were the Grounders looking for a permanent power supply. There was also a group of Grounders who started eating people.
The group of teens is getting smaller because some of them die due to different circumstances. By the season 2, there are only forty-eight of them remaining. At the same time, the residents of the Ark launched several stations throughout the Earth and created a union with the Grounders. What next is going to happen on the suffering planet?
