Welp, if you're going to tell the story of a young Norman Bates growing up to become the 'Psycho' we all know and love, it wouldn't make a terrible amount of sense to quit after the second season. A&E officially renewed Vera Farmiga's Norma and Freddie Highmore's Norman for 'Bates Motel' season 3, set to open up for business in 2015.
'The Walking Dead''s post-airing talk show, 'Talking Dead,' changed the landscape for event TV, as 'Breaking Bad,' 'Sons of Anarchy' and even Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' dabbled in their own post-shows. The latest to follow the trend is none other than A&E's prequel drama 'Bates Motel,' which will now air its own live talk show after the March 3 premiere, dubbed 'Bates Motel: After Hours.'
The second season of A&E prequel drama 'Bates Motel' won't officially open for business until March 3, though the footage and photos we've glimpsed of the new episodes have been largely fleeting. Tension is a slow boil as always now that A&E has scared up a brand new trailer for the premiere that highlights just how tense things will get this season at the 'Bates Motel.'
Indelibly damning our 'Back to the Future'-built appreciation for "Mr. Sandman," 'Bates Motel' season 2 has irreparably appropriated the pleasant little ditty for its first formal trailer. Drinking, drugs, sex and murder await in our latest look at the A&E prequel drama's sophomore season, but will Norman finally be outed as the killer we all know?
We've still got February standing between us and our March 3 reservation for the 'Bates Motel' season 2 premiere, but that shouldn't stop the iconically creepy property from laying out a few fresh spoilers now and again! The full synopsis for our second year in White Pine Bay has hit, along with an exciting interactive website full of 'Bates Motel' secrets, so take a look at the latest from what A&E's psychological thriller has to offer this year!
For as much as we know of Norman Bates' ultimate 'Psycho' destiny, that hasn't stopped A&E's surprisingly compelling 'Bates Motel' from conjuring up a bit of mystery around the character's burgeoning psychosis. We know the first season finale left one character in a pool of blood, but does a new creepy home video teaser reveal the culprit?
To date we've heard plenty of casting news from 'Bates Motel' season 2 on A&E, even a photograph or two, but nothing all-that revelatory from series stars Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga. That all changes today, as we have our first look at season 2 and its new characters with a behind-the-scenes featurette and promos of 'Bates Motel' re-opening for business!
Well, so much for that. Following A&E's controversial move to "ban" 'Duck Dynasty' patriarch Phil Robertson from future filming after his comments on homosexuality in a recent GQ interview, and the resulting media circus, the cable network has officially reneged on its decision to bar the reality star from the highly-rated series.
It's been quite a day for the 'Duck Dynasty' scandal over family patriarch Phil Robertson's controversial homophobic comments, with everyone from Sarah Palin to the Louisiana governor chiming in amid a petition of over 90,000 signatures demanding A&E lift Robertson's suspension from the series, but the Robertson family has reached out with their own reaction that threatens the future of the series.
