CBS is happy enough with the ratings for their summer series Under the Dome that the network’s given the show a second season order. Which, if you’ve been watching the series, must mean the poor inhabitants of Chester’s Mill won’t be escaping from under the mysterious dome this summer.
According to CBS President Nina Tassler, season two of the dramatic series loosely based – make that extremely loosely / basically just the names of the characters are the same – on Stephen King’s novel will have a 13 episode summer of 2014 run. And speaking of King, he’ll be penning the first episode of season two.
“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,” stated Tassler.
Season one of Under the Dome has been averaging 13.84 million viewers. And according to Amazon, more viewers have tuned into the show via their Prime Instant Video service than any other series they offer.
The Plot:
Under the Dome is a serialized drama from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name. It tells the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from, and if and when it will go away.
