The 100 Season 4 Trailer Shows Nuclear Apocalypse; Relates To Real Life Problems

The 100 season 4 has been much anticipated by loyal followers of the show. The newest trailer for the CW’s dystopian-future series features a gleeful background music to put you at ease, yet things quickly get intense. The preview for the new season showed a gloomy picture of Clark & Co.’s future, with the former Wanheda asking, “How do we tell these people that the world is ending after everything they’ve been through?” Read on to find out what to expect in the upcoming season.

The 100 Season 4 Trailer Shows Daunting Apocalypse

Given the premise of the show, the preview was naturally dark and serious. In fact, the synopsis even highlighted how Clarke and her friends will struggle to move forward after the fate of the world was revealed. As the trailer opens, a voice over warns, “the end is coming.”

The upcoming season picks up where it left off; nuclear plants that made it out from destruction are slowly melting. When season 3 ended, Clarke learned that all the fighting was actually just a prelude to see the bigger problem headed their way.

After she thwarted A.L.I.E.’s plan to send everybody to the City of Light, she realized that the environmental disaster was still going to happen. Clarke has a limited time to figure out a way to save Arkadia and the Grounders of the 12 clans from the radiation.

The 100 Season 4 Synopsis Shows Real-life Environmental Concerns

Inverse reports that this season will follow Clarke, Raven, Bellamy, and the rest of the gang. Now, the Sky People and Grounders will take on the environmental apocalypse together. It will show what the consequences will be after the nuclear meltdown happens. There will be lack of potable water, people getting fatal lesions, the presence of black rain and consequentially, dying.

Most of the problems in the trailer echoes the real issues the world is experiencing today. The lack of drinkable water points to the situation in Michigan; toxic rain points to the melting ice caps, the increase of hurricanes, or the quality of air in China.

The 100 Season 4 premieres on Feb. 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
