Is The 100 doing a musical episode this season?! We've got an exclusive bit of casting news for the CW's most underrated show that has us thinking maybe...
E! News can exclusively reveal that recording artist Shawn Mendes is heading to The 100 in season three! The "Stitches" crooner, coming off a hugely successful year with a debut album that hit No. 1 on the charts, a tour with Taylor Swift and his own sold-out headlining tour, is set to appear in the season premiere. He's playing a scrappy young Ark survivor who gets into a tricky situation and uses his particular talents to get out of it.
Seeing as how Mendes has the voice of an angel, we're pretty sure this "young Ark survivor" might be busting out his pipes onscreen because otherwise that'd be such a waste of Mendes' talents...meaning The 100 is totally getting musical. And we could not be more excited about it!
"Shawn is a big fan of the show, and reached out to me on Twitter about potentially working together," executive producer Jason Rothenberg tells E! News. "He's a very talented artist, and we knew we wanted to do something special and different for the premiere. Shawn gave us a unique opportunity and I can't wait for our fans to see our collaboration."
Yeah, it's sounding more and more like our suspicions are correct. We love nothing more than seeing our favorite TV shows go musical for an episode, and we've been dying to see that happen for some time now. But we never thought the next show to take on that particular TV trope would be The 100!
