‘Under the Dome’ Canceled By CBS

It’s curtains for one of network TV’s key summer.

CBS has announced that Under the Dome has been canceled after three seasons, with the finale on Thursday, Sept. 10 serving as the final episode. This news apparently isn’t a surprise to the people running the show, as the season finale had been tailored as a series finale for some time now. In particular, the official press release states that “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.” It basically sounds like this cancellation was anticipated.

Still, CBS had nothing but kind things to say about the Stephen King adaptation in its cancellation announcement.

“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.”

Fans of the show will still be able to access Under the Dome for unlimited streaming through Amazon’s Prime Video, which has been the exclusive subscription video on demand (SVOD) home for Under the Dome since its premiere in 2013.
