'Under The Dome' To End This Season, Not To Be Renewed

Many Stephen King fans probably thought the TV series of King's book, Under the Dome went too far off the mark and was dragged out way beyond its usefulness.

While originally dubbed "the summer mini-series event," its initial popularity caused CBS to drag it out over a couple more seasons and while some die-hard fans continued to follow Under the Dome, others just gave up in boredom.

Now CBS has decided to put both the residents of the fictional town of Chester's Mill and Stephen King fans out of their misery by ending Under the Dome in the current season, two years after the series was originally planned to finish.

Residents were left with virtually no radio communication with the outside world as well as no access to cell or Internet services and it was eventually revealed that the dome had been dropped over the town by mysterious alien forces.

Now CBS is telling fans that the September 10 episode will be the finale and the end of the Under the Dome series.

Reportedly Nina Tassler, chairman of CBS entertainment, teased that the dome was going to come down at the end of the current season, releasing the residents of Chester's Mill from their confinement.

She also mentioned that "two groups of residents engage in one final conflict that some won't survive" and that the dome's "mysterious origins will be revealed."

"Dome's event storytelling and multi-platform business model paved the way for more original summer programming with the successful roll-outs 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."

However, the end is the end and apparently there are no plans to try and sell Under the Dome to another network or streaming company.

According to EOnline, the finale of Under the Dome can be seen on CBS on September 10. RIP. For die-hard fans of the series, you just have to hope you get closure.

For those who didn't watch the series, a trailer is included below.
