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.
