I'll finish the season, but no sure if can go further.
This is latest as of 2 days ago:

While the current season of science fiction drama series "Under the Dome" is winding to an end, CBS Television Network has been unexpectedly quiet regarding its renewal for the fourth installment.

During the recently concluded Television Critics Association (TCA) summer meeting in Beverly Hills, fans finally got some answers about what is in store for the show. Nina Tassler, chairman of CBS Entertainment, told the press that at the moment, they have not made a decision yet about its renewal.

My husband and I are but honestly, it has really gone off the rails. Like into the abyss. Is this the last season? Does anyone know? Moderator?
Steve had told me a couple weeks ago that it would depend on the ratings. If they're good, CBS will likely renew but that's not written in stone yet. At that point he'd said ratings were still good but I haven't heard recently if they've remained so or fallen off.

I am. I almost thought they were gonna pull it out, but the good actors just can't carry the show with all the bad. The acting is just bad with some of these people. And some is very good.
Not sure if you saw last week's episode yet, but...

The whole baby thing in the barn with those women who were killed was creepy, but not in a good way.

. DO NOT OPEN SPOILER_ CONTAINS PART OF FINALE.

The third season of Under the Dome will conclude with a huge change.

CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Monday that — spoiler alert — the dome is coming down.

“The Dome is coming down at the end of this season,” Tassler confirmed.

So Chester’s Mill residents will be free, it seems. But the question is: Does this mean the show will end?

Under the Dome was originally conceived as a single-season limited series, but producers have figured out ways to stretch the story across three seasons now. CBS has not made a decision about whether Dome will get a fourth season. We’re told the finale has some major events beyond the Dome coming down. Also, we’re told producers have written the finale to serve as a potential series finale or a season finale — there is at least one element that opens up a new path how the story could continue.

“[The dome coming down] opens up a host of other storytelling opportunities, you just don’t know what will happen when the dome comes down,” Tassler said.

Also still under renewal consideration: The ratings-challenged Extant, which saw its viewership drop sharply during this summer’s second season. CBS will make a decision on both shows after their respective finales.

I've gone this far, I have to make it to the end (I don't give up easy ;-D). I don't usually watch on Thursdays though. I usually watch it on Amazon a few days after it airs on the network.

The
giving birth to the Queen
story line is beyond ridiculous.

If they are still good, it 's in a train-wreck kind of way.

I think my husband is still recording it at this point....but I 'm not even sure.

Also, Steve's name is no longer keeping me watching at all. It doesn't even remotely seem like his work. When I do watch, it's because I love the actor that plays Big Jim.

Not at all. I wonder what he really thinks of it now? Hmmmm...
