Bates Motel lands third season on A&E

One of the most popular shows that A&E has ever aired is the recently show called Bates Motel that is in its second season right now. Word has now surfaced that the show has been picked up for a third season already reports Variety .

The third season will reportedly, have ten episodes and production on them will begin this fall. Bates Motel is a prequel to the Hitchcock classic, Psycho. Actor Freddie Highmore plays a teenage Norman Bates in the series.

“The incredible writing team and talented ‘Bates Motel’ cast has made this series one of the most compelling original dramas on television,” McKillop said in a statement. “The brilliant twists and turns of the past two seasons keep its loyal fanbase coming back for more. We are so proud of the show.”

Bates Motel continues to be the most popular show A&E has in the 18-49 demographic. The show drew 4.6 million viewers to the season two premiere. Metrics show that 2.6 million of those viewers were adults 18-49.

Early in season 2, Bates Motel moved to a 9 pm time slot to support the launch of another A&E show called Those Who Kill. However, Those Who Kill was cancelled after two low rated airings and Bates Motel moved back to its 10pm slot. I've never watched this show, but the movies based on Psycho creeped me out as a kid.

Bates Motel counts Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin as executive producers. Vera Farmiga is Norma Bates.

It’s been a pretty great season of Game of Thrones, with plenty of new characters (and plenty of killing off of old/new characters) to keep us busy on “A Cast of Kings.” As each season wraps up with several consequential episodes, it’s often easy to forget how much insane stuff happened during the earlier episodes. Thus, I decided to revisit Season 4 and run down some of the moments that made a big impact on me. Find my Top 10 moments ...
