As part of his spoiler roundup, Michael Ausiello at TVLine told fans this week that while there are still a lot of details to be worked out, summer ratings king Under the Dome will be back for a second season. "Yes. Although nothing's official, rest assured there will be a second season of Under the Dome," Ausiello told a reader who wrote in to ask. "The only question is whether CBS will hold it until next summer or bring it back in-season (i.e. next spring)." The series, based on the huge novel by Stephen King, follows the events in a small town after a massive, transparent dome is suddenly dropped around them and they're unable to access the outside world. It was adapted for television by Saga and Y: The Last Man author Brian K. Vaughan.
