Who said main titles are dead?
After a season without one, The CW’s post-apocalyptic drama The 100 premieres its brand-new opening during Wednesday’s episode. Can’t wait until then? You’re in luck because The Hollywood Reporter exclusively premieres the new opening, with music written by show composers Evan Frankfort, Doc Dauer and Liz Phair and put together by L.A.-based design company Royale.
At the moment, everyone is spread out on Earth — in Jaha’s case, he’s alone in space — and the main titles certainly capture the scope of the season, even providing useful context to where things are in relation to each other.
There is even a slight resemblance to The Hunger Games arena with its varied terrain and mapped-out locations, almost to suggest there’s someone controlling them all.
“I wanted to use the titles to expand the universe — show us glimpses of the world of the show from above. All of these shots are places we’ve seen in the show or places that we will see someday,” executive producer Jason Rothenberg explains. “There are Easter eggs throughout.”
And here’s a cool fact: The opening and closing shots will change depending on the episode.
Check out the new opening above.
The 100 airs 9 p.m. Wednesdays on The CW.
