"Under the Dome" season 2 won't be anything like the book written by Stephen King, according to new spoilers. Can we expect new cast members to be introduced to "Under the Dome" season 2 after the air date?

"Under the Dome" season 2 returns to CBS on Monday, June 30 at 10pm ET/PT. According to BuddyTV.com, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said that the new season "goes places the book never went."

Though fans of "Under the Dome" may find this disheartening, Tassler adds that the CBS series is "thrilled to have the master storyteller himself, Stephen King, tell the first [episode] of next season," she said, thereby confirming that King will remain heavily involved in the writing process of "Under the Dome" season 2.

Because the show must introduce new characters to continue the storyline, new cast members will be introduced after the air date, including: Junior's uncle, "who's been hiding out for reasons we find out," and a new teacher who will teach the drama's kids "how to arm and keep Chester's Mill running." The teacher will most likely be a rival for Dean Norris' character, Big Jim.

Speaking of Big Jim: a new teaser trailer hints that he and Sheriff Linda share an intimate kiss!  

"Under the Dome" stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris and Britt Robertson.

"This is the way television should be ... ['Under the Dome' has] been a great new model," CBS Corp CEO Leslie Moonves said of the show and its success, Deadline reports.

TVGuide.com describes the new CBS show: "A small New England town is sealed off from the world by an enormous transparent dome that inexplicably appears and forces the area's inhabitants to deal with the post-apocalyptic situation."
