CBS has officially confirmed the premiere date for their drama series, “Under the Dome.” The show is based on the novel of the same name written by Stephen King.
“Under the Dome” returns for a second season on Monday, June 30 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). The premiere episode will be written by the novel’s critically acclaimed author, King. “Under the Dome” was last summer’s #1 program, averaging 15.06 million viewers and 3.9/11 in adults 18-49, ranking as the most-watched scripted summer series in 21 years.
“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. 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.
The show is produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television.
