CBS’ summer slate of programming will feature the return of Extant for season two, a third season of Under the Dome, and the premiere of Zoo based on James Patterson’s bestselling novel.

Details on the 2015 Summer Lineup, Courtesy of CBS:


In the series, a wave of violent animal attacks against humans begin taking place across the globe. As the assaults become more cunning, coordinated and ferocious, a young renegade biologist (James Wolk) is thrust into the race to unlock the pandemic’s mystery before there’s no place left for people to hide.

Zoo stars James Wolk, Kristen Connolly, Billy Burke, Nonso Anozie and Nora Arnezeder.

Under the Dome:

Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, Under the Dome 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. This season, Emmy Award winner Marg Helgenberger will guest star in an extended story arc, beginning with the premiere episode, as the town’s inhabitants figure out the Dome’s purpose and what it wants from them.

Under the Dome stars Dean Norris, Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Alex Koch, Colin Ford, Mackenzie Lintz and Eddie Cahill.


This season, astronaut Molly Woods (Berry) discovers she has unwittingly put the human race on a path to destruction, and that she and mysterious stranger J.B. Richter (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) may be the only hope for survival.

Extant stars Halle Berry, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Pierce Gagnon and Grace Gummer.

Big Brother:

Big Brother follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with more than 53 cameras and 97 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, the House Guests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining House Guest will receive the grand price of $500,000.
