The CW’s ‘The 100’ Sparks the Return of the Bellameme

It’s been a long eleven months since the season four finale of The CW’s The 100 aired. In its wake, fans of the post-apocalyptic series have grown bored. Thankfully, the end is within sight as we’re now four — FOUR — days away from The 100’s return on April 24.  In the lead up to its return, The CW has released character posters every couple of days as a fun countdown. Little did they know (or did they) the April 20 release would stir up the fandom in a way that can only be described as MEME-orable. April 20 will go down in fandom history as the day the “Bellameme” returned with the season five character poster of Bellamy Blake (Bob Morely).

It’s…hilarious. My very first reaction was, “Oh….” followed by immediate laughter. In short….I LOVE IT! And much like The 100 when they first landed on Earth in season one, I am not alone. It took approximately five minutes before jewels like these started gracing my twitter timeline.

Showrunner and creator Jason Rothenberg got in on the fun, retweeting his favorite memes that have been making the rounds and even Bellamy Blake himself, Bob Morley has changed his twitter layout to reflect this hilarious day in fandom.

This isn’t the first time a meme of Bellamy has made the rounds in fandom. Does anyone recall “Confused Bellamy?”

And let’s not forget the Blake Triplets:

Meanwhile, keep the new meme’s coming. We’re in the home-stretch before The 100 comes back and this should keep us all entertained for a few more days.

The 100 returns back April 24th 9/8c on The CW. Stay tuned to TV Source Magazine for weekly reviews and more fun features throughout the season.
