A&E returns to Bates Motel

Cable channel A&E has ordered a second season of Bates Motel, re-committing to the Psycho prequel series that enjoyed a strong premiere last month in the US.

The series by Universal Television debuted to 4.5 million total viewers (live +7) on March 18, holding on to most of them in the episodes since. “Bates Motel has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal audience in its first few weeks,” said A&E president and general manager Bob DeBitetto.

The next 10×60′ run will shoot later this year, going to air in 2014. Though set in the present-day, the series traces the early years of Norma and Norman Bates, the mother-son duo of Alfred Hitchcock’s famed 1960 film Psycho. Bates Motel is exec produced by Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin.
