Six years have come and gone for the characters of The 100, and the makeup and wardrobe department won’t let you forget it. Photos of the season 5 cast have appeared on Twitter ever since filming began in August, but new snaps give us a definitive look at what your favs will look like come midseason.

Reporters visited The 100 set in Vancouver, giving fans a glimpse at what will change and what will stay the same when the series returns this winter. Clarke (Eliza Taylor), who debuted a shorter ‘do in the final moments of “Praimfaya,” will continue to rock her clipped locks despite an earlier photo of her with her regular cut (second photo.)

Will the premiere hit us with a flashback? With six years worth of backstory to tell, we certainly hope so.

Bellamy (Bob Morley), meanwhile, looks like a young Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) come back to life. Always the oldest of the OG delinquents, Morley’s character will use a little facial hair to set himself apart from his younger cohorts.

As for the rest of the cast? They look as badass as ever. Don’t worry about Murphy (Richard Harmon), he’s just dressed up as Niylah (Jessica Harmon), who also happens to be his real-life sister. 

“The actors are now going to get to play their actual ages which is going to be fun for some of them. Time jumps are tricky,” series creator Jason Rothenberg told IGN. “They’ve been apart now way longer than they were on the ground. You see how much change there has been in so many of these characters, from the pilot to where we are now. Imagine five times that in the various worlds they are siloed in — Underground, on the ring, and Clarke alone with Madi on the ground. You can expect real changes.”
