CBS is taking four shows – hits Under the Dome, Person of Interest and The Big Bang Theory; and the new thriller Scorpion – to Comic-Con 2014.
Under the Dome will figure in the Con beyond its panel and exclusive sneak peek – CBS will be offering fans free rides in Under the Dome Pedi-Cabs; The Big Bang Theory brings back its popular Writers’ Room panel for a look at its new season; and Person of Interest will present a special video presentation and Q&A – as it tackles a season in which there are now two operational Machines.
Scropion, though, gets a world premiere screening and panel to introduce the fast-paced, nerds-save-America thriller and branded giveaways that include exclusive, superhero-inspired art.

Last summer’s biggest hit drama, Under the Dome (CBS, Mondays, 10/9C) returns with an episode called Heads Will Roll – written by Stephen King. It does get around to where the first season cliffhanger left off, but not immediately – if there’s one thing this show does, it’s tease and tantalize.
CBS has released its schedule for Summer 2014 – two new series, the mystery-thriller Extant (starring Halle Berry) and the sultry legal drama Reckless (starring Anna Wood, Cam Gigandet and Shawn Hatosy), and three returning shows – Big Brother, Under the Dome and Unforgettable.
For series descriptions, casts, premiere dates and times, check out the press release after the jump.
Last summer’s big hit for CBS, Under the Dome will return for its sophomore season Monday, June 30th (10/9C); this season’s new CBS event series, Extant – starring Halle Berry – will premiere Wednesday, July 2nd (9/8C).
