This weekend will mark the end of EUE Screen Gems Studios seasonal tours—making it the last chance for the public to visit the sound stages featuring sets from season three of the CBS television show “Under The Dome.”

CBS is breaking down sets that will not be used in future seasons of the show. It is still undetermined if this will be the last opportunity for “Under the Dome” fans to see the remaining sets in Wilmington. CBS has not commented on multiple reports the show will decamp to another state if it’s picked up for a fourth season.

The tours, which resumed last year after a three-year hiatus, picked back up in March to once again give visitors an inside peek at the largest studio complex east of California and learn about EUE/Screen Gems’ three decades of production.

The tours take film buffs around the 10-stage working lot and through “Under the Dome” sets, such as the crowd-favorite diner, a centerpiece for the show’s activity.

The final tours are approximately one hour long and are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 15 and 16 at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m., both days. Those attending are advised to wear comfortable shoes and bring along rain gear if appropriate.

Guests should arrive at the studios, 1223 23rd St., 15 to 20 minutes ahead of time to purchase tickets (cash only). Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for students, seniors and military with a valid ID; $5 for children 5-12; and free for children under five.
