“A lot of people said, ‘How do you maintain a show under a dome year after year?'” he said. “They’ve come up with a really exciting and interesting way of broadening the scope of our world. I think everyone’s in for a real treat once that happens.”

Under the Dome” is airing its second season Monday nights on CBS (10 p.m. EDT).

Cast member Rachelle Lefevre said viewers will also see more about how the outside world is reacting to the dome.

“This season you will get your first glimpse of what the impact of the dome has been,” she said.

“When you’re dead, you’re dead, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be an avatar at some point and come back,” teased executive producer Neal Baer.
