CBS announced today that Under the Dome has been renewed for a third season. The sophomore drama will continue to air as a summer series in 2015 along with Extant, which was just renewed for a second season.

"We're committed to delivering our viewers and advertisers year-round programming with a wide variety of storytelling," said CBS Entertainment Chairman, Nina Tassler. "We continue to see summer as a great place for unique concepts, innovative business models and passionate television audiences."

Season 2 of Under the Dome continued to draw healthy viewership despite lower ratings than its freshman run. The show was once again the summer's top scripted series in total viewers and key demographics.
