Today, CBS has revealed that the show, which is based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, will have the dome come crashing down on it in the series finale on Thursday, Sept. 10.
"Two years ago, UNDER THE DOME broke new ground in the summer and became an instant hit on CBS, as well as with viewers around the world," said Nina Tassler, Chairman, CBS Entertainment. "DOME's event storytelling and multi-platform business model paved the way for more original summer programming with the successful rollouts of EXTANT and ZOO. We're excited to present the final chapter in Chester's Mill as the story comes full circle, with the Dome coming down as dramatically as it went up."
The series finale plot: "When the Dome comes down, many questions about its origin and power will be answered, as two groups of residents engage in one final conflict that some won't survive."
Under the Dome tells the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. Combating Dome and man-made threats daily, the residents of Chester's Mill rose to new heights of ingenuity, courage and, for some, darkness, in order to survive their post-apocalyptic isolation. Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Eddie Cahill, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Mackenzie Lintz and Kylie Bunbury star. UNDER THE DOME is produced by CBS Television Studios and Amblin Television. Steven Spielberg, Neal Baer, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Stacey Snider, Tim Schlattmann and Peter Leto are executive producers.
