‘The 100’ Schedule: When Does ‘The 100’ Return with a New Episode?

The 100 is a rerun tonight

CW The 100 is a rerun tonight.

If you tune in tonight to watch The 100, you’ll be disappointed to see that Season 7 Episode 10 isn’t airing. Instead, you’ll see a rerun. When does the show return with the newest episode? Read on to learn more about The 100‘s schedule.

‘The 100’ Won’t Return with a New Episode Until August

Tonight, instead of a new episode of The 100, you’ll see a rerun of “Anaconda” (Episode 8), the prequel episode. The series won’t return for the newest episode — Episode 10 — until August 5.

Some people might enjoy watching the prequel again, so this could be a treat. Jason Rothenberg, executive producer, shared a screenshot of a scene that was deleted from tonight’s episode.

Since Rothenberg is currently trying to get an official prequel series picked up based on “Anaconda,” reairing the prequel can be a way to bring more attention to the prequel idea.  The episode would serve as a backdoor pilot if the prequel is picked up.

On July 8, one person tweeted about the prequel, writing: “How is #The100Prequel not already ordered? #the100 is one of the smartest, morally educating, women-sensetive show, not only on @TheCW but on American tv as a whole! Get it on!” 

It’s not unusual for The 100 to have a long hiatus. In fact, hiatuses typically happen once or twice during a season. The CW often builds hiatuses strategically into its series to make sure they can take advantage of sweeps. Two seasons ago, The CW put The 100 on a three-week break in April because of sweeps. This year, the sweeps period already happened from June 25-July 22, 2020, so the prequel episode fell within the July sweeps. The show’s current break is overlapping with the end of sweeps.

Here’s a preview of the new episode when it does air on August 5:
