The CBS summer series Under the Dome has been a (fairly entertaining) hot mess its first two years, but producer Neal Baer promises they’ll soon finally start doling out some answers. As anyone who has stuck it out the first two seasons can attest, it’s about time.

While speaking at a press tour, Baer noted they’ve been carefully laying the foundation for the show’s mythology across the first two seasons. All that stuff that connects the origins of the dome back to something that happened 25 years ago, and the mysterious portal exit? Yeah, it’s all (hopefully) going to make sense soon.

Check out an excerpt from Baer’s comments via TV Line below:

"We will tell you why the dome came down and what it’s about. By the end of the season, you’ll know exactly why this happened the way that it happened … We promise you we will answer why the dome is there, but of course we’re going to ask more questions.

Why was there 25 years to pass before the dome came down? What was in play 25 years ago that set all this in motion? That’s one of the biggies we’re going to address. You’ll see how these puzzle pieces form a puzzle that may be different from what you thought it would be."

The first two seasons have made for some fun sci-fi in the summer, but it’s nice to see Baer & Co. realize you can’t keep adding layers and layers without peeling back a few along the way. The show has several cool ideas bouncing around, and we're hoping they can finally put all the weirdness together into something better than the sum of its parts.

The third season of Under the Dome is set to debut June 25 on CBS.

What do you think is the real reason behind the dome?
