She joins previously announced cast members Natalie Martinez (CSI: NY) and Alex Koch and Colin Ford (Supernatural).

Under the Dome is produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and will premiere Monday, June 24, at 10/9c.

  • Britt Robertson? This show is doomed.

    • Why? Because her last show got cancelled and the one before that lasted 2 seasons? I wouldn’t quite say “doomed”, as she’s proven to be a really talented actress, and we can all see she has the looks to go far too.

    • Well, if it sticks close enough to the book, the show isn’t quite as doomed as… nevermind. X)

  • @jimbo Well..it’s not going to get cancelled as it’s only 13eps. Kid has had tough luck so far.

    • With the luck she had so far, CBS is probably going to pull the plug after airing six or so episodes. I sincerely hope she finds herself a successful and long-running show, she’s one of the most beautiful actresses in TV.

  • Why do casting directors keep hiring this girl? She’s not that talented and the two shows she starred in were canceled pretty quickly.

    She’s like the Taylor Kitsch of T.V!

    • Bite your tongue, the girl is beautiful AND talented. Go watch “The First Time” and say she isn’t talented.

      I’m really happy for her and hope she finds success. If not, then I can’t wait to see her in more movies. She’s already working on another one.

      • I agree that she’s talented, however I do also agree that she’s the Taylor Kitsch of TV.

  • Hopefully it will be a good show. It’s a very good book.

  • Hmm..it’ll be interesting to see how they do this show in comparison to the book. Like, is season one going to follow the book for the most part and then branch out in season two? I wonder if the same characters will die/live as in the book? Really curious!

    • I don’t think they’re planning on a season 2. It sounds like it’s only going to be 13 episodes then done.

  • What are they thinking? The girl is a showkiller and can’t act.

    Comment by Mary – January 25, 2013 02:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Wow how about no?? She’s a fantastic actress and can play a whole host of characters very well.

  • It isn’t exactly a tv show it is a long miniseries. There is only going to be the one season so it won’t be canceled or anything like that. If they make it they will air it and it is planned for summer so I think it will be fine.

    • Has this been confirmed? You know, American Horror Story is a “long miniseries” as well, so it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to end after the initial 13 episode run. They very well could leave a door open for another season if it does well ratings wise.

  • I think I’m going to end up watching this. They’re certainly assembling an interesting cast.

  • Every show she is on gets cancelled. It’s cursed now.

    • Csi and law and order : SUV ran for long enough! Enough with the show killer line.

      Comment by Henman – January 25, 2013 03:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Each of those series she only appeared in an episode, which is hardly enough time to kill those shows. The 3 shows that she had a starring role in have been canceled, and she’s certainly responsible for 2 of those cancelations.

        • You are a might presumptuous aren’t you? You for a fact know that she is the sole reason the shows she was on were cancelled. Apparently you know exactly the reason why each and every person did not watch the shows was. You are mighty talented, can you please tell me what the lottery numbers for this weekend are too?

          I for one only watched the Secret Circle, but her acting was no worse than many other young actors. I enjoyed her and the other characters on that show and will watch shows they are in again. People really need to get over all of the negativity towards many of todays actors and actresses, they are hard working people just like the rest of us.

  • Keeping her in the family then! I’ve enjoyed her other shows so I’m in.

  • Poor Brit. Talented yet unlucky. I think the trend will stay the course sadly.

  • Well I don’t understand why anyone is complaining since…

    SPOILERS

    She dies even before the dome comes down, and in the first pages of the book, so I guess she’ll die in the pilot…
