The 100 Season 7 Trailer: The Final Battle for Sanctum Begins

The seventh and final season of The 100 is almost upon us, and as you’ll see in the just-released trailer, it’s going to be a bloodbath.

The 100‘s last hurrah kicks off on Wednesday, May 20 (The CW, 8/7c) with a premiere appropriately titled “From the Ashes.” Per the official synopsis, this first hour finds “Clarke and her friends [attempting] to rebuild Sanctum as a new threat rises in the woods.” Additional (vague) synopses hint at other obstacles to overcome, including uncovering the truth about grown-up Hope’s mysterious past, easing dissent among opposing factions within Sanctum, and investigating a few troubling disappearances.

In addition to the (few) surviving characters fans know and love, we’ll also be introduced to quite a few new faces in The 100‘s final season, including a grown-up version of Hope Diyoza (played by newcomer Shelby Flannery), a former bank robber and spree-killer named Nikki (Supernatural‘s Alaina Huffman), and a charming convict named Hatch (Siren‘s Chad Rook).

The final season also includes a backdoor pilot (titled “Anaconda”) that will turn back the clock and set the stage for a potential prequel spinoff. In that episode, we’ll meet a “whip-smart” rebel named Callie (Carnival Row’s Iola Evans), her competitive twin brother Reese (The Bold and the Beautiful’s Adain Bradley) and an unrelated musician/radical environmentalist named August (Why Women Kill’s Leo Howard). Evans and Bradley could reportedly become series regulars if the The 100’s potential spinoff is ordered to series.
