CBS announced Monday that it has renewed their popular new drama Under the Dome for a second season.

Under the Dome will be returning for 13 more episodes in the summer of 2014. The series averaged 13.8 million viewers per week since it began on June 30 and has regularly been the most-watched show on Mondays at 10 p.m.

In addition to the announcement of the show's renewal, CBS also revealed that author Stephen King, who wrote the 2009 novel of the same name, would be writing the premiere episode for season 2.

"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," said CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler in a statement Monday.

As for the current season, there have been a few details that have been either released or leaked about future episodes. Episode 8, which is called Thicker Than Water, will feature Junior (Alex Koch) discovering the truth about his mother and confronting his father, Big Jim (Dean Norris), according to a CBS press release. The episode will also find Julia learning the extent of the "mini-dome's" powers. It will air on Monday, Aug. 12.

Episode 9, titled The Fourth Hand, will include Junior witnessing Angie (Britt Robertson) having a seizure while chanting "Pink stars are falling in lines," according to a report Thursday from SpoilerTV. The seizure will remind Junior of a memory from his childhood in which his mother painted a picture of pink stars falling from the sky. Additionally, Big Jim will help Angie become the owner of the Sweetbriar Rose diner.

Under the Dome will air its sixth episode of the season, titled The Endless Thirst on Monday at 10 p.m. on CBS.
