There’s still a few more episodes left in, Season 2, but will A&E’s Number 1 drama series of all time come to a dead end after the season finale in a few more weeks?
It definitely won’t considering Season 2 continues to receive great ratings and the network is fully on board to invest in another season. A&E has officially announced yesterday that they have picked up a third season of the critically acclaimed original series Bates Motel, a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock.
Executive Vice President and General Manager David McKillop of A&E Network said:
The incredible writing team and talented Bates Motel cast has made this series one of the most compelling original dramas on television. 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 this fall and will continue with a 10-episode format on A&E on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET.
