(Relaxnews) – At the TCA Press Tour, CBS announced that its new sci-fi thriller “Extant” will air on July 2, a few days after the Season Two premiere of “Under the Dome.” Both shows are produced by Steven Spielberg.

Last September 16, “Under the Dome” ended its first season with a terrible cliffhanger. CBS will finally put an end to the suspense from June 30 with the science-fiction series’ second season.

At the TCA Press Tour, the network also announced that Stephen King, whose novel provided the inspiration behind the series, contributed as a writer on this much anticipated season premiere episode, in which two characters will die.

CBS is betting that fans of “Under the Dome” will also appreciate “Extant,” premiering July 2. The science-fiction series created and produced by Steven Spielberg will star Halle Berry as an astronaut returning to Earth after a year-long mission in space. While struggling to reconnect with her loved ones after the long absence, the character must also manage certain disturbing occurrences which are seemingly related to her recent mission, and which could change the face of the planet.
