The best TV picks for the week ahead, June 27-July 3

Among the big TV moments of the upcoming week: HBO debuts a new series based on the Tom Perrotta novel “The Leftovers” and the Wilmington-filmed “Under the Dome” returns for a second season.

The Wilmington-filmed “Under the Dome” series, based on the novel by Stephen King, returns for its second season Monday night at 10. Monday’s episode was written by King and we’ll finally get to see what happened after the explosion of pink stars in the Season 1 finale – and also, if Big Jim (Dean Norris) will actually let Barbie (Mike Vogel) hang. I’m guessing Barbie is safe, but King recently told reporters that he’s loving the new television trend in which no characters are safe, and that he “jumped at the chance to kill off a couple of loved series regulars.” Hmmm.
