Well, the dome is dead over at CBS.
The network announced today that Under the Dome would not be coming back for a fourth season and that the September 10th Season 3 finale will now serve as the series finale.
But fans of the show need not worry as they won’t be left hanging with unanswered questions after the series finale.
“In the series finale, when the Dome comes down, many questions about its origin and power will be answered,” per the episode’s just-released logline, “as two groups of residents engage in one final conflict that some won’t survive.”
Under the Dome premiered to huge ratings for the network with almost 18 million Live+7 viewers.
“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, in a statement. “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.”
