Under the Dome: Season 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

Under the Dome: Season 2 (2014)




Critic Consensus: Though it reins in some of the first season's absurdity and shows potential for improvement, Under the Dome's second season still feels like a ride with no closure.

Tv Season Info

Season 2 of the sci-fi drama (based on Stephen King's novel of the same name) about a town that is cut off from the rest of the world by a gigantic transparent dome begins with the citizens of Chester's Mill discovering that the Dome is magnetised. Making matters worse is the town's rapidly declining food supply. The situation becomes so dire that Big Jim (Dean Norris) and Rebecca (Karla Crome) propose the extreme measure of population control. Additional woes include a massive dust storm and acid rain that threatens everyone it touches. But a glimmer of hope shines when a mysterious tunnel is located under the town that could possibly prove to be an escape route. Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre and Eddie Cahill also star.

Critic Reviews for Under the Dome: Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

Fans of Dome, and there are many, have never expected the acting to reach award-level, largely because of the dialogue, and hey, a lot of times it's more entertaining that way.

For those who hung in, and may be considering heading back Under, there are glimmers of hope for season two.

Poor, silly Dome has been breeding like a drunken rabbit. Does anyone else have an itchy trigger finger yet?

Under the Dome has assuredly stepped back into its place as one of the most frustrating and dim-witted shows on television.

July 1, 2014 | Full Review…

Under the Dome is definitely going for a new "no one is safe" vibe. Though it would help of any of the characters who were no longer safe were characters I actually care about.

July 1, 2014 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

At least it's not a lame reality show or a procedural rerun.

Audience Reviews for Under the Dome: Season 2

Season 2 of Under the Dome was quite a disappointment with a ridiculous plot and random violence that served no purpose.
