Viewers will be able to check into Bates Motel for a second season. A&E will be bringing back the dramatic series for a 10-episode season two to air in 2014. Filming will take place on the series later this year.
Bates Motel stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore and is executive produced by Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin. The cast also includes Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, Nicola Peltz, and Nestor Carbonell. The first episode of season one had 4.5 million viewers and is the most watched “original drama debut in the key demos” in A&E’s history.
Announcing the renewal, Bob DeBitetto, President and General Manager of A&E Network and BIO Channel, stated: “Bates Motel has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal audience in its first few weeks. With superb writing and exceptional acting, led by the critically acclaimed performances of Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore, we’re incredibly excited to see where Carlton and Kerry take Norma and Norman Bates next.”
The Plot:
In Bates Motel, following the tragic death of her husband, Norma Bates buys a motel on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of White Pine Bay, seeking a fresh start. As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn’t quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive – and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets.
