The fate of Ice Nation King Roan (Zach McGowan) on The 100 has been revealed.

The CW's post-apocalyptic series has promoted McGowan to series regular for season four, EP Jason Rothenberg announced Friday during the show's Comic-Con panel.

Roan's fate was left up in the air by the end of season three. In part one of the finale, "Perverse Instantiation," Roan tried to help Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and set up a tentative Ice Nation/Arkadia truce. But their plan was doomed from the start since A.L.I.E. (Erica Cerra) had convinced Jasper (Devon Bostick) to eat a City of Light chip, so she already knew what they were attempting to do when they walked into Polis.

When they realized that their plan wouldn't work, Roan tried to give Clarke a head start in her escape, and a chipped Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) shot him. He was last seen seriously bleeding, being dragged away by other chipped Grounders. McGowan's promotion to series regular means that Roan will survive his gunshot injury and will play a bigger part moving forward as the King of the Ice Nation.

In addition to The 100, McGowan is best known for his roles on Black Sails and Shameless. He was most recently seen on an episode of UnREAL.

The 100 returns for season four in midseason on The CW.
