CBS announced today that its new sci-fi drama Under the Dome has been renewed for a second season. The freshman summer series has been pulling in solid ratings since its premiere last month, making it an easy decision for the network to issue today's pickup for another 13 episodes in summer 2014.
It was also announced that Stephen King, who penned the bestselling novel of the same name, will write the premiere episode for Season 2.
UPDATE: Season 2 of Under the Dome will premiere on Monday, June 30, 2014.
Season 1 was good, This season is getting tired. The plot is running so thin the viewers are becoming critical of the acting abilities. Remember the ending in the book? This would be a great time to end it that way. I was affected by it for weeks! I still can't look at an ant farm without feeling guilty!

The storyline has gone way to far off the mark and gotten much to weird bringing back a dead person ? Really ? And a mad scientist ? Get back on track already ! And you're killing some of the wrong Ppl

Season 2 is nothing but a soap opera where logic, reason, personalities, and attitudes towards ANYTHING changes episode to episode in order to fit whatever the writers feel. There's absolutely no stability in the character development. Mom's alive! The radio DJ is a cop! Email suddenly works for 30 minutes. It's ludicrous.

This comment isn't about the show, per se, but the fact that I personally feel lied to by CBS. They billed Under the Dome as a summer miniseries with tons of ads about just watching a summer escapist series with a conclusion. That meant no worries about renewal, and they were vocal about letting the whole thing run despite whatever ratings were achieved. I still have TV Guides with some of that info in them!
I wonder how many other people watched the show because of the promise of a beginning, middle, and end. It seems kind of dishonest to get high ratings by promising one thing and then change it to something else, but that is to be expected by most networks I guess.
I'm glad it was renewed since it is a good show, but I just like to know the truth about what I'm getting into. Does anyone else have an opinion about this?

lol at you haters dont have anything better to do in life other than hate on a TV SHOW. Here is a bit of friendly advice. since you apparently dont know,but,you dont have to watch this show. there are about a million other shows you can watch,or things that you can do.that is if you can stand up and get off that couch long enough for spring cleaning it.

I love this show. It's different. Everything else on tv is either cops Dr's or reality crap.
