It has been a while since fans saw the first teaser trailer for “The 100” season 5. Something new should have been released by now. Acknowledging the delay in releasing new promo material, show creator and executive producer Jason Rothenberg has promised to rectify the situation soon.

There is a “ton” of new material planned to promote the next season, Rothenberg teased in an online post (see below). The trailer, interviews, photo shoots, posters and a press tour are all being lined up.

Viewers also don’t have to wait too long for the premiere of next season. Rothenberg joked that the light at the end of the tunnel is not a train, later adding that, yes, it could be a train.

The producer did not reveal, however, when the next trailer for the series will be released. However, since the premiere date of the next season is close, fans can expect to start seeing teasers and promotional material very soon.

What can viewers expect? There is little scope for love stories, even though all factions seem to have put aside their differences and unified to stand together and survive. On Valentine’s Day, Rothenberg pointed out how this particular celebration was long forgotten in the show's post-apocalyptic world. He shared a poster of a heart symbol made of blood (see below).

The plot of next season will focus on the new threat posed by the prisoners that have just landed on earth. Clarke (Eliza Taylor) may be the first to take up arms against these newcomers to defend her turf. The newcomers, on the other hand, will need a place to stay in the radioactive world.
