Bates Motel renewed for season 3

News Louisa Mellor 8 Apr 2014 - 07:25

A&E will be returning to White Pine Bay for a third season of its Psycho prequel drama, Bates Motel...

Bates Motel was one of the first to arrive in the recent glut of movie-inspired TV shows (see FargoFrom Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, the recently commissioned 12 Monkeys...), and it's a bet that paid off for its network.

Season two of the Psycho origin story starring Freddie Highmore as a young Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his, er, overbearing mother Norma has attracted a healthy viewership and continued to win critical applause, hitting the jackpot for A&E.

A third ten-episode season of Bates Motel has thus been ordered, and is due to arrive in spring 2015.
