Of course on Dome Day, Under the Dome “official” notice of a season 2 came out via CBS: “UNDER THE DOME” RENEWED FOR SUMMER 2014 – Television’s #1 Summer Series to Return with 13 New Episodes.”
And yes what we’ve been buzzing about for months now, Stephen King will finally get what he’s been wanting: to write the Premiere Episode for Season 2.
“We’re excited to tell more stories about the mystery of the dome and the secrets in Chester’s Mill, and are thrilled to have the master storyteller himself, Stephen King, tell the first one of next season,” said CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler.
And you can bet he will be here for that entire episode. Earlier it was reported the UTD crew would be getting everything back in order here in October. But another source said they would run the same schedule as season one, coming back in February 2014. Well, a girl can dream, right? I mean, can you imagine having Stephen King here for Halloween?!
Another great episode last night. Man, every week, the show gets better and better! I have to remind myself to breathe when they break for commercials! We will see what the critics had to say about it later today, and of course we are waiting for those Nielsen ratings. I will get them to you this afternoon! The UTD folks filmed into the overnight just beyond the back lot, some LIVE tweeting from the set! Looks like they will get a late start for the second to last day filming, the folks return to the Ideal cement Factory, possibly on stage again, too.
Danny McBride and his Eastbound and Down posse head downtown today shooting at the fantastic Manna restaurant downtown as well as the Wilmington Convention Center. They have over 100 extras on hand today…I smell fun! Oh, and a quick trip tot he rumor mill. Regardless of this being the “last season,” a source told me talk was heard about HBO really liking what they have seen so far, and it might not be a final season after all. But that is definitely just rumor! Danny and Jody Hill are busy enough with another HBO show plus, Loomis Fargo, but you never know!
Don’t forget to VOTE for Wilmington to get an early screening of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow! The folks are back in New Bern shooting episode 2.
Check out Wilm on Film’s blog about Sleepy Hollow shooting in Havlock yesterday at the Sherwood Motel. Great story Drew!
