Variety reports that CBS has set premiere dates for its summer event series “Under the Dome” and “Extant,” with the latter newbie slated for Wednesday.
“Under the Dome” will return for its sophomore season on June 30, remaining in the Monday 10 p.m. timeslot in which it aired last summer. The first episode of season two will be written by Stephen King, whose bestselling novel the series is based on.

Her experiences lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.
The series will be distributed domestically by CBS Television Distribution and worldwide by CBS Studios International.
