'Under the Dome" coming to CBS summer '13

Hopefully the series won't fizzle out toward the end the way that the novel did...

Quote:
Stephen King is coming back to broadcast TV. CBS is giving the authorís Under the Dome a 13-episode series order.

Based on Kingís bestselling novel, Under the Dome is the story of a small New England town thatís suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The townís residents need to survive the deteriorating post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from, and how to make it go away.

...

The series version was originally developed at Showtime. But in an unusual move, the ambitious project jumped from a cable networkís slate to the major broadcaster (more on that below). Itís also a rather unique title for CBS, since the network has been traditionally more wary about betting on serialized dramas than its rivals. But with AMCís The Walking Dead and NBCís Revolution, apocalyptic serialized dramas have been delivering large numbers lately.

Fans of the novel shouldnít expect an exact retelling of the same story. Last we heard, writer Brian K. Vaughanís (Lost) script for Dome was wisely using the novelís setup as a launch pad for its own TV-format-friendly version of the story and might even lay the groundwork for a different outcome than the novelís ending. Also, the CBS version is definitely a series, not a mini-series, with a finale episode that will leave the story open for more seasons.
Bit more info at the link.

It's funny that you say that. My wife and I both watched it thinking that there was one more episode coming and the ending seemed consistent with that idea. I didn't figure out that it was the season finale until I read this thread.

I wish they would have just used the premise, and made the whole thing a little less cosmic-egg-babysits-cocoon-pink-stars-inside-egg-make-big-dome

Started watching it on Amazon Prime a couple weeks ago... I know it's the same writer as Lost, but is it supposed to be Lost 2? They're doing a great job of it, to the point of practically mocking the whole "give us answers" thing.

Thought season 1 was pretty good for the most part, but season two has the same lack of direction as Lost, with loose ends quickly piling up.
