CBS has released an extended look at their summer event series Under the Dome, based on the novel by Stephen King. The trailer, which clocks in well over the two-minute mark, begins by introducing us to the residents of a sleepy town called Chester’s Mill and then it drops a giant dome on top of them– that’s when things get interesting.
The highlights include several fantastic sequences where various things ranging from trucks to birds to planes crash into the dome and the welcome appearances of a few faces that should be familiar to genre fans, including Breaking Bad‘s Dean Norris and Lost‘s Jeff Fahey. The trailer also offers hints that there could be a conspiracy responsible for the sudden appearance of the dome. “So do we tell them the truth?” asks Big Jim (Winters). Check it out below!
Under the Dome premieres Monday, June 24th on CBS.
