    The Tribe is a New Zealand/British post-apocalyptic fictional TV series primarily aimed at teenagers. It is set in a near-future in which all adults have been wiped out by a deadly virus, leaving the children of the world to fend for themselves. The shows focus is on an unnamed city inhabited by tribes of children and teenagers. It was primarily filmed in and around Wellington, New Zealand.

    The series was created by Raymond Thompson and Harry Duffin (from an original idea by Raymond Thompson) and was developed and produced by the Cloud 9 Screen Entertainment Group in conjunction with the UK's Channel 5. It has aired on over 40 broadcast networks around the world.

    It debuted on Channel 5 on 24 April 1999 and quickly gained a large fan base. From 1999 to 2003, five series and 260 half-hour episodes were produced. Series 6 was scheduled to begin filming in 2003, but Nick Wilson, of Channel 5, and Raymond Thompson felt that "although the show was still performing well, the cast was getting too old and the series was beginning to stretch the core proposition." They felt the characters were not kids fending for themselves without adults any more. As a result, the show was canceled. Channel 5 aired the final two episodes on 6 September 2003.

    The opening theme "The Dream Must Stay Alive" was sung by Rosalind J. for series 1. For series 2-5 the theme was sung by Meryl Cassie, who played Ebony in the show.
    The ending theme for series 1 was also "The Dream Must Stay Alive" sung by Rosalind J. For series 2-3 the ending theme was "Abe Messiah" which was sung by The Tribe cast. Series 4-5 ending theme was "Tribe Spirit" sung by The Tribe Sister. These are real-life sisters Meryl Cassie, who played Ebony in the show, Monique Cassie, who played Siva in the show, and Megan Alatini, who played Java in the show.

    The cast recorded an album called "Abe Messiah" and later a remix of the album called "Abe Messiah Remix".
