Under the Dome is set to be one of CBS’s main summer events. Its second season will premiere on June 30th. Based on the book by Stephen King, the series is about a small Maine town that has become trapped under a mysterious force field–or dome–as seen here in the featured original season trailer. The season premiere for season 2 will be written by Stephen King himself.

It seems some fans haven’t been particularly pleased with the changes that show runner Brian K. Vaughn has made to the story in his efforts to adapt it to TV. King, who also serves as the series’ executive producer, has made it abundantly clear that the changes are all okay with him. Hopefully by writing the season 2 premiere himself he will appease those disgruntled fans and assure them that his presence will definitely lend itself to future episodes.

Under the Dome was a huge hit for CBS. It ranked as the network’s top-rated summer show–and it even received Variety’s Breakthrough of the Year Award for television.

Very actively engaging fans via Twitter, those behind Under the Dome are busy dropping hints and asking viewers what they want to see in season 2.

If you’re an Under the Dome fan you’re no doubt thrilled to hear that there will, in fact, be a second season, but perhaps a bit disappointed that you have to wait until June to watch it again. In the meantime, of course, you can engage in a bit of dialogue via the show’s Twitter account, and surmise how you believe Stephen King’s opener will draw in even more fans.
