“The 100” left us with yet another nuclear apocalypse on our hands at the end of Season 3, and now the cast and showrunner, Jason Rothenberg, are hitting San Diego Com-Con to share details on what this latest catastrophe will mean for Season 4.

Are we headed back to space or underground for refuge from the radiation? Will Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy (Bob Morley) finally make Bellarke a reality, or should we be more excited about more epic Kabby kissing?

We’re live blogging the panel, so stay tuned for spoilers, news on trailers and premiere dates and updates on what we can expect from “The 100” Season 4.
