Bates Motel Renewed For Two More Seasons by A&E

Bates Motel

A&E Network has ordered twenty episodes of the acclaimed drama series Bates Motel from Universal Television according to a press release. New episodes of the series, which stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore, will begin production later this year and will air over two seasons, starting in 2016.

The press release does not specify if these will be the last two seasons of the prequel series, but I would venture to guess that the series may be done after that. Things already seem to be coming very close to Norman finally snapping.

Bates Motel serves as a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film Psycho and provides viewers with an intimate portrayal of how Norman Bates unravels through his teenage years.
