'Bates Motel' Checks In for a Season 3 Renewal


'Bates Motel' Checks In for a Season 3 Renewal


Let's hope you all have your reservations in order because 'Bates Motel' is officially checking in for a 10-episode third season on the A&E network. Mother will be so very pleased, indeed.

This psychotic thriller — which is only midway through its second-season run — tells the story of a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his slow descent into becoming a full-fledged...well...psycho, thanks in large part to his twisted relationship with his smothering mother, Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga).

After last month's shocking plot reveal regarding the identity of Dylan's father, it's hard to imagine what other terrifying storylines the writers have in store. But one thing's for sure — it's bound to give us all nightmares, in the best way possible of course.

“The incredible writing team and talented 'Bates Motel' cast has made this series one of the most compelling original dramas on television,” A&E's Executive Vice President and General Manager, David McKillop, said in a statement. “The brilliant twists and turns of the past two seasons keep its loyal fan base coming back for more. We are so proud of the show.”

Production on Season 3 will begin sometime later this fall. Meanwhile, the series will wrap its second season on May 5.

A brand new episode of 'Bates Motel' airs Monday, April 7 (that's tonight!) at 10/9c on A&E. Don't anger Mother by missing it.

It can be done! This is what happens when you take a property, respect it and build on it. I thought this show was a terrible idea but the writing and acting is first class. A well written journey of a young man with mental problems and a mother who tries to bury it instead of getting him the help he needs. We know the results. Excellent news for an excellent show.
