With less than a month until the premiere episode of "Under the Dome" season 3 airs on CBS, the network released a series of photos that teases fans about what to expect when the mystery sci-fi drama returns. 

Based on the pictures, the answers to the questions that have been baffling viewers since the series began in 2013 will finally be revealed.

The executive producers also said that all of the pending issues that surfaced in the past seasons will be addressed when the show returns next month. 

"Why was there 25 years to pass before the dome came down? What was in play 25 years ago that set all this in motion? That's one of the biggies we're going to address," Schlattmann revealed in an interview with TV Line. "You'll see how these puzzle pieces form a puzzle that may be different from what you thought it would be."
