“We’re excited to tell more stories about the mystery of the dome and the secrets in Chester’s Mill and are thrilled to have the master storyteller himself, Stephen King, tell the first one of next season,” CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said in a statement on July 29.
The series tells the story of a small town who suddenly finds a large dome dropped over it, sealing it off from the rest of the world.
The cast and crew are currently shooting the season finale right now and it ends with “a hell of a cliffhanger,” executive producers Brian K. Vaughan recently said at Comic-Con on July 21, so we’re happy to hear the series won’t end without some closure.
‘Under The Dome': A Ratings Hit
Under The Dome premiered to 13.5 million viewers with a 3.3 demo rating on June 24. The most recent episode attracted 11.4 million viewers.
The series stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris and Britt Robertson. Under The Dome airs Mondays, 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
