It is about the mysterious occurrence that involved the entire town of Chester’s Mill being cut off from the outside world because of an indestructible dome.

The return of “Under the Dome” will also mark the absence of Brian Vaughn. According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), the writer/executive producer had arched Season 2 with showrunner Neal Baer before he left. He previously worked on adapting King’s novel into series, writing and producing some of the episodes including the show’s pilot and season finale.
“Right after we finished season one of Under the Dome, our showrunner Neal Baer and I had the amazing honor of working with Stephen King himself to help plot the new direction of our second season. It was one of the best experiences of my creative life, but it was also a really long time to be apart from my family, who I’ve seen way too little of since I started helping to develop Dome years ago, so I decided to step away from the show,” said Vaughn in the THR article.
