“The 100” season 5 is ready to air. The show creator and executive producer Jason Rothenberg also teased a behind-the-scenes picture, celebrating cast member Lindsey Morgan’s (Raven Reyes) birthday.

Fans get a glimpse of the season 5 sets in the new picture that Rothenberg shared online (see below). The plot of the show will focus on life on earth six years after the second nuclear apocalypse. There will also be flashbacks that will reveal what happened at the bunker and the Ark during this time jump.

In a previous tweet, Rothenberg had said he was going to watch the finale of season 5. The producer may have been reviewing the final cut of the episode. He had a bottle of vodka ready, and he promised to take a shot of the drink every time someone says “my people” on the episode, and two shots for every “I go this.”

“See you in the emergency room,” Rothenberg joked, suggesting that there may still be quite a few repetitive dialogues on the show this year. The producer may cut at least some of the scenes he feels are unnecessary, but at the moment, it looks like they are ready to go on air.

The next season is set to premiere on April 24, but the producers are yet to start promoting the show in earnest. Viewers have already seen the setup of the next season in the preview that was part of the season 4 finale, in which Clarke (Eliza Taylor), in her new hairstyle, witnesses the arrival of new prisoners from space.

The first few episodes of “The 100” season 5 are expected to focus on the fight between Clarke’s people and the newly arrived prisoners. Viewers will get to see the home Clarke has built for herself, which is being referred to as Eden.
