  1. The 100 certainly is the great survivor, each year I think will be its last the show gets a renewal which is good news for Sci-Fi fans. I suspect that the growing Google/Android streaming business may offer a reprieve for other shows in the future as well, especially relatively long running shows with a popular following .

  2. The time jump happened at the end of S4 to reveal that people didn’t die (presumably incase it wasn’t renewed). In S5 they flashback 6 years paralleling then and now. I am getting sick of shows that flashback to irrelevant stuff to try and cover up for the fact that their main narrative has run out of steam. This is what happened to Lost after S1 and is happening to Westword & THT. The CW is coping with Peak TV by increasing the number of hours of original content they broadcast a week. So they have only cancelled Life Sentence and Valour (iZombie S5 is unknown).
