The time has come to meet again.

Christmas has come early for the ravenous fans of The 100, the CW's criminally underrated drama, as the network has dropped the first look at season three, which premieres Thursday, Jan 21.  So how highly anticipated was this trailer? Well, "THE 100 TRAILER TODAY" was trending worldwide for several hours of Twitter,  that's how excited fans were.

And man, did The 100 deliver with the trailer, which is almost three-minutes of non-stop action, emotion and epic moments. Seriously, you're doing to want to take a seat, have a glass of water and a paper bag to breathe into at the ready before pressing play on  the video above.

The biggest moments for us during the trailer? The introduction of a new big bad (played by Sons of Anarchy star Michael Beach), seeing how damaged Jasper (Devon Bostwick) is, a lot of Raven (Lindsey Morgan) tears, a badass new look (Is that red hair we see?!) for Clarke (Eliza Taylor), who left the Sky People at the end of season two and is in hiding as it seems like she's being hunted by a whole lot of people, and the start of a whole new war.

But it may just be a civil war as the conflict between siblings Bellamy (Bob Morley) and Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos), is front and center in the trailer, resulting in the latter beating the crap out of her brother, telling him, "You're dead to me." 

But it's not all blood and battles, as we see a shocking new hookup, a tender moment between Octavia and Lincoln (Ricky Whittle), the return of Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey). 

Oh, and a and a "Bellarke" reunion hug that is sure to see some action on Tumblr. "It's clear to me that these two people have come to need each other and respect each other and love each other on some pretty deep level," executive producer Jason Rothenberg told E! News after Bellamy and Calrke's goodbye in the season two finale. "Obviously it's not romantic, certainly for Clarke anyway, and it's never been vocalized that it is for Bellamy either. You could read as much as you want in their body language and their eyes, but that's something that is being put off again as a result of Clarke's walkabout."

The 100 returns Thursday, Jan. 21 at 9 p.m. on the CW.
