Event series Under the Dome returns for a third season with a special two-hour premiere on its new night, Thursday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT before moving to its regular time period on Thursday, July 2 at 10 p.m. immediately following Big Brother. CSI alum Marg Helgenberger joins the cast “in an extended story arc, beginning with the premiere episode, as the town’s inhabitants figure out the Dome’s purpose and what it wants from them.” Under the Dome was last summer’s most-watched (11.32m) and highest-rated scripted program in adults 18-49 (2.8/09) and adults 25-54 (3.7/10).

Two familiar characters will die in the opener of Dome, which is going beyond King’s book. However, the series also will add new people: Sam Verdreaux (Eddie Cahill), a reclusive man who is the brother-in-law of Big Jim Rennie (Dean Norris); Rebecca Pine (Karla Crome), a teacher who works with Big Jim and brings a science perspective; and Melanie (Grace Victoria Cox), a character pulled from the lake by Julia Shumway (Rachelle Lefevre) just after she throws the mysterious egg into the water at the end of the first-season finale.
Eddie Cahill is returning to the CBS family, but he’ll have to go Under the Dome to do it.
The former CSI: New York star has been cast in a series regular role as the “reclusive” EMT brother-in-law of Dean Norris’s Big Jim, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Cahill’s character Sam will reportedly form a bond with Rachelle Lefevre’s Julia, and it’s worth noting that a recent installment of Ask Ausiello described him as “the crazy drunk who lives alone in the woods.”
