A new trailer for Under the Dome’s second season has arrived, promising bigger mysteries and a few brutal deaths. You know, pretty much what you’d expect from this breakout sci-fi hit.
Based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, Under the Dome’s second season looks to build on the story the author tracked in the book. Producer Brian K. Vaughan promises the new season is “going to take us to places where the book never got to go,” and confirms that King actually chimed in on the direction of year two. Plus, King wrote the season premiere. Woohoo.
The bigger reveal? The producers promise two major deaths will occur in the season premiere, and judging by where the season-one finale left things, we could think of more than a few candidates. It’s nice to see the writers aren’t afraid to mix things up, and after a shaky first season, here’s hoping some big changes can give the story some oomph.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:
The series returns Monday, June 30, on CBS. The premiere episode is titled "Heads Will Roll." Judging by the promised carnage, it sounds fitting.
