Alycia Debnam-Carey will return to The CW drama “The 100” in the show’s upcoming third season, it was announced Friday at San Diego Comic-Con.
Executive producer Jason Rothenberg made the announcement during the show’s panel in Ballroom 20, where he was joined by cast members Eliza Taylor, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos, Isaiah Washington, Lindsey Morgan and Ricky Whittle.
Debnam-Carey recurred on Season 2 as Lexa, the Commander of the Grounder army who fell for Taylor’s character Clarke. After a kiss, Lexa betrayed Clarke and her friends, leaving them to die at the hands of their common enemy, the Mountain Men.
Rothenberg did not specify when Debnam-Carey will return nor for how many episodes, but her return had been in question because the actress is a series regular on AMC’s zombie spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead,” which is already currently in production.
The EP also teased that the third season of the show will begin after a time jump of several months following the events of the finale, which saw Clarke leave her people and walk off into the woods alone.
Filming on Season 3 begins on July 15, with the show scheduled to return for a 13-episode season in 2016 on The CW.
Debnam-Carey most recently appeared in Warner Bros.’ disaster thriller “Into the Storm.” She is represented by UTA and Management 360.
