‘Under the Dome’ season 3 will be the last as ‘answers’ emerge

CBS is now confirming that the season 3 finale of Under the Dome will be the series finale, offering up a conclusion with answers.

“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.”

Per CBS, “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.”

CBS has officially decided to not order a fourth season of the series, which is based on the Stephen King bestseller.

Deadline noted the ratings drop since the first season: “Under The Dome was a phenomenon when it launched in June 2013 with 17.8 million Live+7 viewers tuning in for the premiere, the highest summer drama debut in 21 years and the second-highest-rated opener of the 2012–13 season. The adaptation of the Stephen King novel could not sustain the initial ratings highs and has been on decline ever since.”

Of course, Dome was originally conceived as a limited series, but the strong ratings led creators to contrive a story to keep the show going.

Under The Dome stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Eddie Cahill, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Mackenzie Lintz and Kylie Bunbury star.
