CBS has set its summer slate, with return dates for "Big Brother" and Stephen King's "Under the Dome" announced -- among others -- and a slight delay for the Halle Berry-Steven Spielberg limited-run series "Extant."

The end of June kicks off the rollout. "Big Brother" will return Wednesday, June 25. New legal drama "Reckless" will make its debut a few days later, on Sunday, June 29, finished off by the third season premiere of "Unforgettable."


Then, on Monday, June 30,  it's time to gear up for people trapped in a bubble, with the return of "Under the Dome." As previously announced, the premiere will be penned by Stephen King, who wrote the bestseller on which the series is based.

Meanwhile, Berry's debut as a TV topliner has been pushed back a week. Sci-fi drama "Extant," which boasts Spielberg as an executive producer, was previously scheduled to premiere July 2; it will now get a post-Fourth of July debut on Wednesday, July 9.
