Under the Dome comes to an end after three seasons with “The Enemy Within,” airing on CBS Thursday, Sept. 10, at 10pm ET/PT. As the Dome over Chester’s Mill comes down, the Resistance makes a final attempt to protect the outside world from the infected townspeople in the Kinship and their new queen, Dawn (Kylie Bunbury).
From a CBS press release:
“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.”
I was intrigued by Under the Dome when it debuted and hung on through all of Season 1 (I did this interview with Alexander Koch, who plays Junior, before the much-anticipated Season 2.) As with a lot of shows in Season 2, Under the Dome slammed on the brakes. Then it just got weird and then silly (and not the good kind), and I bailed on it midway through the season. I didn’t miss it. I still had to write some Under the Dome program descriptions at work, and all I know about Season 3 is that it has something to do with Marg Helgenberger, the Kinship, the Resistance and some kind of sex goo. Seriously, the only real thing that will be missed are i09’s hilarious The Dome Speaks recaps.
Viewers can watch all three seasons of Under the Dome on Amazon Prime Video.
