‘Under the Dome’ season 3 premiere details emerge, synopsis and video

Under the Dome fans are excited to hear that the Stephen King inspired drama returns next week with a two-hour premiere. Season 3 of the CBS thriller will kick off with twice the chaos as our favorite Chester’s Mill residents attempt to cope with the new obstacles created by the Dome.

According to the synopsis for episode 1 and 2, which will air Thursday, June 25, audiences can anticipate the townfolk of Chester’s Mill to face new, dangerous threats “following their mysterious encounter in the tunnels beneath the town.”

During the Season 2 finale of Under the Dome, Barbie (Mike Vogel) and the residents of the trapped city attempted to escape the entrapment of the Dome through a crater. However, not everyone was able to flee Chester’s Mill after the chasm widened, leaving Julia (Rachelle Lefevre), Junior (Alexander Koch) and crazy Big Jim (Dean Norris) stuck behind.

During a CBS summer press event, executive producers Neal Baer and Tim Sclattmann announced that the supernatural series would finally answer the burning questions of fans in the third installment.
“We will tell you why the dome came down and what it’s about,” Baer confirmed, adding that by the Season 3 finale, “you’ll know exactly why this happened the way that it happened.”

But answers will only lead to more questions and according to reports, viewers can expect their fair share of head-scratching moments when new residents begin to emerge. The newcomers will throw a wrench into the storyline as surprising alliances begin to form.

Former CSI star Marg Helgenberger joins the cast with Eddie Cahill, Mackenzie Lintz, Colin Ford all returning to reprise their roles.

Under the Dome will air its Season 3 premiere, “Move On” and “But I’m Not,” on Thursday, June 25, at 9 p.m. EDT on CBS. Following the two-hour premiere, the series will return to its regular airtime of 10 p.m. EDT.
