Series mastermind Brian K. Vaughan (“Lost”) has long said he wants to do more seasons and “Dome” is the most watched show of the summer and ties the Stern-fueled “America’s Got Talent” as the summer’s top show in the key (adults 18-49) demo.

Les Moonves also announced at CBS’ TCA presentation that Stephen King, whose novel forms the basis of “Dome,” would write next season’s first episode.
