The sci-fi series has performed well for TEN thus far and in the US is averaging 13.84 million viewers as summer viewing.
It will return for another 13 episodes in 2014.
“We’re excited to tell more stories about the mystery of the dome and the secrets in Chester’s Mill, and are thrilled to have the master storyteller himself, Stephen King, tell the first one of next season,” CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler said in a statement.
On the question of how long the show can feasibly run beyond the Stephen King novel, producer Brian K. Vaughan has told press, “When we first started talking to Stephen, we came up with the idea of the town potentially being trapped for years at a time, and that’s something that [King said] you guys could get to do that I didn’t.
“We pitched Stephen a far-out, big-swing idea for this to go several years, a different ending, and he was really excited by it.”
