RIP: CBS Cancels UNDER THE DOME TV Series

CBS’ Under the Dome is officially making Season 3 the final season of the Under the Dome TV series based on Stephen King‘s novel Under the Dome. The TV series has been struggling with weak story plots that have been attributed to CBS’ decision to stretch the TV miniseries into multiple seasons. All is not lost as the season finale episode airing Thursday, September 10, 2015, will answer all questions and reveal of the mysteries. Are you sad to see Under the Dome come to an end or have you been waiting for this to happen since season 1?

CBS announced today that the Dome in Chester’s Mill will come down and its mysteries revealed during the series finale of UNDER THE DOME on Thursday, Sept. 10. Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, UNDER THE DOME debuted Monday, June 24, 2013 and has been one of the most-watched shows on television for the past three summers.

In the series finale, 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.

"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."

All three seasons of UNDER THE DOME will continue to be available for unlimited streaming to fans and members of Amazon’s Prime Video, which has been the exclusive subscription video on demand (SVOD) home for DOME since the show premiered.

UNDER THE DOME is produced by CBS Television Studios and Amblin Television.
