Seriously, how has FX not picked this up to series yet? Guillermo del Toro certainly has much to prove at the box office this weekend with the release of 'Pacific Rim,' but his upcoming FX pilot adaptation of 'The Strain' is proving monstrous in its own right. 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Goonies' star Sean Astin is the latest high-profile star to join the cast, but will he prove friend or foe?
'Bates Motel's first season has come to a close with tonight's finale episode "Midnight," and never has it been more apparent that Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) has a dark future in front of him.

Get the inside scoop on future 'Bates Motel' from showrunner Carlton Cuse himself inside!
Just yesterday we were wondering what had become of FX's Guillermo del Toro-helmed pilot 'The Strain,' after HBO announced their own del Toro project 'Monster,' and now we have our answer.

Hear what FX has to say about a live-action 'The Strain' inside!
A&E's 'Psycho' prequel 'Bates Motel' has grown far beyond a simple origin tale of Norman Bates in only six episodes, but last night's revelatory "The Truth" threw some major curvature into what we think about the development of Alfred Hitchcock's iconic cinema killer.

Get the latest 'Bates Motel' spoilers inside!
With the Television Critics Association press tours ongoing, earlier today we were treated to the reveal that A&E would in fact premiere its upcoming 'Psycho' prequel TV series 'Bates Motel' on March 18. The series has a considerable amount of buzz going for it, particularly with former 'LOST' show-runner Carlton Cuse at the helm, but Cuse spoke out today that the 'Bates Motel' story in its modern context may not necessarily treat Hitchcock's film as canon. Find out how 'Bates Motel' differs from the source material inside!
We've been keeping our eyes on A&E's forthcoming 'Psycho' prequel TV series 'Bates Motel,' which to date has assembled an impressive cast and put together some seriously creepy teasers of its 2013 premiere.

Showrunner Carlton Cuse has announced a new contest that lets fans get their 'Psycho' on, designing the title sequence to be featured in the show itself! Will you be the one to design the look of 'Bates Motel'?
The moment that A&E first announced that 'LOST' co-creator and show-runner Carlton Cuse was headed back to TV, we started counting the days until a former 'LOST'ie turned up on the project.

Man, with elements like that in the title, what more do you need to know? Oh, alright. With TV ever more the burgeoning medium these days, more and more prolific film names are getting into the development game. Guillermo del Toro has certainly had his hands in a few TV pots, everything from the delayed 'Hulk' series to a new HBO venture, but could a new vampire series at FX with 'LOST' executive producer Carlton Cuse be the next big thing? Get ready for a wildfire spread when 'The Strain' trilogy hits the tube!
