TV show description:      
This TV series is based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King and revolves around the people of Chester’s Mill, a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by a massive transparent dome. They include:

An Army veteran, Dale “Barbie“ Barbara (Mike Vogel) is a handsome and enigmatic traveler who was passing through Chester’s Mill when the dome came down. He has a mysterious past that includes the reason why he was in the area.

Julia Shumway (Rachelle Lefevre) is the editor of The Independent, the local newspaper. She’s an investigative reporter who recently moved to town recently with her husband, Peter, a doctor at the medical clinic who’s now disappeared.

“Big Jim” Rennie (Dean Norris) is the owner of the region’s largest used car lot. He either commands respect or just buys it. He’s the only elected official left under the dome and his love for Chester’s Mill is surpassed only by his desire for power.

James “Junior” Rennie (Alexander Koch) has spent his life growing up in the shadow of his father. Despite the scholarship he earned to play college football, he’s willing to throw that all away to stay at home with his one real passion, Angie, his date to the junior prom. When Angie rejects him, a hidden side of Junior erupts, just as the dome comes crashing down around Chester’s Mill.

Angie McAlister (Britt Robertson) has had one goal — to leave Chester’s Mill forever. In the meantime, she’s been biding her time working the lunch shift at Sweetbriar Rose and as a candy-striper at the local health clinic. When the dome comes down, she finds herself trapped in a place she never imagined.

Joe McAlister (Colin Ford) is very smart and has an adventurous spirit. He becomes entranced by the dome. His truck-driver father and his mother are both trapped on the other side of the wall, and his older sister, Angie, is missing. Joe may have a connection to the dome that he, and no one else, can quite explain.

Sheriff Duke Perkins (Jeff Fahey) is the stoic face of this town who’s also had a hand in the town’s dirty laundry. For years, he’s mentored Linda Esquivel (Natalie Martinez), a young deputy with a soft smile but a hard edge. She’s trapped under the dome while her fiancé, Rusty Denton, is on the other side.

Norrie Calvert-Hill (Mackenzie Lintz) is a 16-year-old girl who’s en route to a tough-love camp with her parents when the dome comes down. She’s a world away from her home in California, with a town of strangers. Like Joe, she also has a strange connection to the dome.

Norrie’s parents are Alice Calvert (Samantha Mathis) and Carolyn Hill (Aisha Hinds), a pair of strong professionals from California. As they realize that there’s no way out of this strange town, they discover that they already know the other trapped people of better than they ever knew their neighbors back home.

Phil Bushey (Nicholas Strong) is the DJ at Chester’s Mill’s only independent rock station and finds himself in charge of the only radio station able to reach the town. Dodee Weaver (Jolene Purdy) is the station’s brainy engineer, and possesses technical skills unmatched by anyone in the dome, which proves to be a great resource.

Rose Twitchell (Beth Broderick) is the owner of the local diner, Sweetbriar Rose, where everyone seems to gather. Rose keeps the biscuits hot and the coffee fresh, and knows the comings and the goings of the town better than most anyone.

    I really can’t believe you would leave us hanging like that. Although I have seen other series that did just that. Not good tv. I have read the book and it is truly a great book, long but worth the read. Please keep it going so we can see how people would really feel if they were the ants.

    It makes no sense to just stop it. Those of us who have followed it deserve some closure, even if the show is cancelled. It needs to have at least one last episode to allow closure.

    I hope to see it return. It was a good show that can be enjoyed by the whole family, one that didn’t have shoot ups and/or sex in every other scene. Hope to see it return in the fall.

    I do think it should be renewed ,but w/ the direction it is going I hope Mr. King gives us a good dose of the suprenatural otherwise just another evening soap /w out the zombies .

    The big networks wonder why they are loosing viewers to the other forms of entertainment and the cable channels. I am just fed up with the networks putting on shows and you get interested in them and then they pull the plug on what you were watching.
    If the networks start a show at least finish it. Every time I find a show that I get interested in and start to watch. They quit producing it. Can’t stand watching television much anymore. I enjoyed, Under the Dome, and they pulled the plug. They shouldn’t tease you
    and give you a taste and then try to call it a full meal. BRING UNDER THE DOME BACK!!!

      I know where you are coming from. I have watched countless shows just to get really wrapped up in them and then there’s not ending. Really bad TV. BRING BACK THE DOME. This is our picket sign. Thank you John.

    I love it. Read the book to see what happens but it’s so different to the programme. Make more, I want to see it end properly.

  7. says

    Needs to come back. Interesting plot with someone to hate and someone to like and someone to pity. Story is intriguing and should at least have a season finality.
