The Hollywood Reporter: Under the Dome started with good critical buzz, but that quickly faded. Are you happy how the show ended creatively?
Brian K. Vaughan:
Sure. For me, my concern has always been is one audience member in particular happy and that's Stephen King. He's been thrilled. We're so excited to have him on board especially for the beginning of next season. The show is going to take some very unexpected new directions next season but I'm very proud of what we've accomplished so far.

There were a lot of story detours and extraneous characters that defected from the central premise of the show -- a town trapped under the dome. Is there anything you would have done differently?
Sure. I think there are always things -- the speed that you'd put together a new show with and the fact that we had 13 episodes just about completed in their entirety before one had even aired. Looking back, sure, there are always things you'd do differently. For the most part, we concentrate on the parts of the show that we really liked and challenge ourselves to do something new next season.

Is the pace something you'll be looking at to step up next year? Anything specific that you're looking at doing differently in season two?
It's hard for me. I never like to back-check the show. There are some things that maybe didn't work for me that may turn out to be some audience member's favorite part of the show so that's why I'm being coy about what could have worked better or didn't work.

Are there any specific things that will be different next year?
This first season is based on the framework of the novel. Next season is what always excited King most about the possibility of doing this as an ongoing series. If you've read King's novel, it takes place over the course of a couple of weeks. King's dream was always how will things change when we go beyond that, when we talk about people who aren't trapped together for days or weeks on end but potentially years on end. That's the biggest change that will happen next season: we're no longer dealing with immediate aftermath of the dome. This season the challenge was to establish the tone of the town, and you're dealing so much with the town coming to terms with if they're really trapped and if there's a chance they're going to get out. Next season is exciting for us because it's a season where everybody knows they're not getting out and they're clearly trapped and this is the new normal. We'll get to go to some places that the book never got to go to.

Will there be a time jump?
I don't want to spoil too much because King will saw off my head if I ruin anything, but there will definitely be answers to the cliffhanger that we left. We will give you some immediate answers to that as well. But there is a possibility that there's a bit of a time jump as well.
