Hey, "The 100" fans. We are happy to tell you that it's time to pop a cork on those champagne bottles. The CW gave your favorite show a brand new season 5 renewal order!

It actually happened way back in March 2017 while the current season was still in its early stages, so there was never really any doubt about the show's future. Of course, this wonderful news means that more spoiler scoops, sneak peek clips, cast interviews and so much more is heading your way in the future weeks and months so be sure to keep an eye out for all that good stuff.

They'll probably be back at Comic-Con 2017

One event that comes to mind right off the bat is the big 2017 Comic-Con event in San Diego. It's going down in July 2017 and I would not be surprised if "The 100" crew doesn't show up to do another spoiler-heavy question and answers panel. We'll keep you updated on that.

According to the folks over at TV Line, the episode count for season 5 has yet to be revealed. An educated guess says we'll probably just get another 13 episodes but who knows? We'll get the exact details in late June or early July.

If the show does only get another 13 episodes, we can most likely look for season 5 to premiere in the second half of the 2017-2018 season. The renewal announcement was made by The CW president Mark Pedowitz.

Other CW shows renewed

Other CW shows that have been renewed are: "Arrow," "The Flash," "Supergirl," "DC’s Legends of Tomorrow," "Supernatural," "Jane the Virgin," "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," "Riverdale," "iZombie" and "The Originals."

Some freshman shows that tried to creep into the lineup didn't quite make it. They are: "Frequency" and "No Tomorrow." So any of who that may have grown an attachment to those shows should be aware that they are done for good.

We also need to say a special RIP to "The Vampire Diaries." They decided to end their very successful show with season 8. The show will definitely be missed.

Looking at the ratings numbers for "The 100" for the current season 4, it's pretty hard to see why they got such an early renewal. Here's a look at the numbers.

The season 4 premiere episode scored a 0.43 demographic rating for the 18-49 age groups and brought in 1.2 million viewers.

Those numbers were down a negative 35 percent for the demo ratings and a negative 35 percent for the viewership numbers from the season 3 finale episode.

Below the million mark

The ratings and viewership numbers just kept on dropping as this season went along. The last episode 12 that aired on May 17th,2017 scored a 0.28 demo rating and only brought in 0.83 million viewers.

Their viewership numbers dipped below the million mark which is certainly not good. All I can say about that is CW is very merciful. Or maybe they're hoping those numbers will rebound in the next season. There's also the possibility that they grade it on a different set of criteria since it gets less episodes.

Whatever the case, they'll definitely want to pick those numbers up in season 5. Stay tuned.
