Under the Dome, a serialized drama based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, is the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome.
The town's inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers about the dome, where it came from and if and when it will go away.
When the residents of Chester's Mill find themselves trapped under the massive transparent dome with no way out, they struggle to survive as resources rapidly dwindle and panic quickly escalates.
In Season 2, Barbie's fate lies in Big Jim's hands and the Dome presents a new threat when it becomes magnetized.
Meanwhile, Julia seeks out the help of a stranger to save the life of a mysterious girl who may hold clues to origin of the Dome, on the second season premiere of Under the Dome.
