CBS has started to put together a pretty compelling summer lineup. Today, the network announced that three of its original programs will be returning this summer, along with a brand new TV series based on a bestseller by James Patterson.
Under the Dome has proven time and again that no character is genuinely safe in this series, as numerous characters have already been killed off. But is one of them going to come back? During the Under the Dome panel at Comic-Con in San Diego today, executive producer Neal Baer dropped a pretty strong hint about the potential return of one of two specific characters.
The ratings are in, and while Under the Dome's Season 2 premiere performed well, it's still down a bit from the series premiere last summer. While it came close to a series low, the "Heads will Roll" episode of Under the Dome did manage to beat out other network TV competition last night, including 24: Live Another Day.
If you weren't already excited for the return of Under the Dome, the above video should do a nice job of whetting your appetite, especially if you're a Stephen King fan. The author of the book on which this CBS drama is based penned the first episode of the second season, and executive producer Neal Baer admits to hoping that this will be a sign to fans that Stephen King "sanctions the show.
CBS has announced their Fall TV premiere schedule, calling it a "multi-phase rollout." The schedule begins with NFL Thursday Night Football on September 11, while the scripted series don't start rolling out until the week of Sunday, September 21. Among the returning shows lined up for premiere week are The Good Wife, Person of Interest and Hawaii Five-0...
Under the Dome returns for Season 2 in less than a week. CBS has released a couple of previews for the series to give us an idea of what's head. More dome mayhem awaits the residents of Chester's Mill. From the preview above, which has some of the cast -- Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Mike Vogel, Alexander Koch -- talking about Season 2, it sounds like the second season will pick up pretty much exactly where the first season left off.
The Summer TV season is upon us. With new shows like Extant, Rush and Tyrant -- among others -- joining the lineup, and returning series like True Blood, Doctor Who, Under the Dome, Defiance and Graceland lined up, TV has plenty to offer us this summer.
Though Season 2 of CBS’ Under the Dome doesn’t really have anything to do with King’s source material anymore, TV audiences can still expect for the prolific author's influence to be felt. Especially since he’ll have his very own cameo in the first episode.
CBS has updated their Summer schedule and includes the premiere date of Season 16 of Big Brother. The reality competition series will kick off nearly a year to the date from last season's premiere, which got off to an earlier start than usual. Also on the schedule is CBS's new drama Reckless, and a slightly updated start date for the sci-fi series Extant.
What better way to kick off the start of production for the second season of Under the Dome than with a video of Stephen King calmly "Tweeting" from an old typewriter on the set. Because that's how Stephen King would Tweet, right? The teaser from the set also features Under the Dome stars Mike Vogel and Colin Ford throwing Dean Norris's character under the bus as they plead for him to be the one to not be safe this season.
ER alum Sherry Stringfield has been cast in CBS's drama Under the Dome in what could prove to be a pretty crucial role in the story. As was the case with the recent casting of Grace Victoria Cox in Season 2, this role isn't directly connected to a character from Stephen King's book. But given how far the series has already drifted from its source material, that's to be expected at this point.
At this point, it's probably fair to say that if you're a Stephen King fan who read Under the Dome, you're about as in-the-dark about what's coming up on the CBS series as any other viewer anticipating the show's second season. The small screen adaptation has already deviated so much from the source material in terms of character development and story that even the dome seems to be playing by its own TV-land rules.
Are you ready to return to the Dome? Well, we still have a while to wait for Under the Dome to return to CBS for its second season, but the network did announce the official premiere date for the series, along with the debut date for their new drama Extant, starry Halle Berry. Also announced today were the return dates for The Amazing Race: All Stars and Survivor.
Remember last summer when Amazon Prime made each new episode of CBS’ hit summer drama Under the Dome available just days after it aired? Awareness of this may be contingent on whether or not you were a Prime subscriber at the time or had any interest in Under the Dome. Regardless, it was a new approach for CBS and Amazon Prime in quickly distributing the series on the streaming video service one episode at a time...
Well, the first season of Under the Dome didn't end quite like I hoped it would, but I'll admit, I was on the edge of my seat for those last few minutes, and actually issuing orders to Julia to move faster, because her dramatic pause was killing me. Let's insert the spoiler alert here. If you haven't seen the season finale of Under the Dome read no further!
