Under the Dome got kinda ridiculous kinda fast over the course of its first season, but it got great ratings. And despite the fact that it really has very little in common with the Stephen King novel anymore, the author is actually becoming more involved with the show's second season.
He wrote the first episode, and a video of him on set as production begins today has been released, showing him "tweeting" and getting great WiFi on his typewriter. Who needs all that new-fangled technology?
That's Barbie (Mike Vogel) and Joe (Colin Ford) with him. Under the Dome comes back for season 2 on June 30th on CBS and will reportedly begin killing characters off immediately.
