Those poor people of Chester’s Mill aren’t getting out just yet. CBS has renewed their Under the Dome TV show for a third season. It’s expected that the new episodes will run next summer and that there will be 13 installments once again.
Under the Dome revolves around residents of Chester’s Mill in Maine after a large transparent dome cuts them off from the world. Those on the inside must work to survive with limited resources and rising tension. The large cast includes Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Nicholas Strong, Colin Ford, Mackenzie Lintz, Jolene Purdy, Aisha Hinds, Dean Norris, Eddie Cahill, and Karla Crome.
Though the ratings for season two dropped quite a bit, Under the Dome remained CBS’ top-rated scripted series of the summer and remains profitable for the network, mostly because of deals with Amazon and overseas distributors. Episodes supposedly make the network $2.5 million each in profit before they even air.
What do you think? Are you glad that Under the Dome will be returning? Should this be the end or could you see it running for a fourth season?
