CBS made another announcement today during their presentation at the Television Critics Association. They announced that they have renewed Under the Dome for a second season and that Stephen King would pen the Season 2 premiere episode.
“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,” said CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler in a statement.
It seemed like a no brainer that CBS would bring the freshman series back for another season. It’s the biggest show of the summer and averaged almost 14 million viewers per episode.
