US broadcast network CBS has renewed its summer drama series Under the Dome.
A 13-episode second season has been ordered for 2014, with writer Stephen King, upon whose book the show is based, will pen the first episode of season two.
Under the Dome, produced by CBS Television Studios and Amblin Television, tells the story of a small town that is suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome.
The executive producers are King, Neal Baer, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Stacey Snider, Jack Bender and writer Brian K Vaughan.
The series also airs on Amazon’s Prime Instant Video in the US and has been picked up by Channel 5 in the UK.
