We all go a little mad sometimes, but it’s always better to be happy, right? Bates Motel fans will be very happy to know that A&E has renewed the horror drama for a 10-episode third season, even though the sixth episode of Season 2 only aired on Monday night. It’s a confident move for the network,
A&E will bring Bates Motel back for its second season in exactly one month, so the timing seems perfect for them to release the new poster for Season 2. Much in the way the Season 1 art had Vera Farmiga's Norma Bates sitting just a bit too close to her son Norman (Freddie Highmore), this new bit of key art puts mother and son head to head over the words "Blood is Thicker."
Are you ready to check back into Bates Motel? The drama series is set to return to A&E for its second season on Monday, March 3 at 9:00 p.m. A&E offered up some details about what's ahead for the series, in the form of a plot synopsis. They've also laid out the list of guest appearances for Season 2.
If you were looking to check into A&E’s reimagining of the world behind Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, now’s the chance, as the network has released two new teasers for the upcoming second season of Bates Motel, slated to hit the network on March 3, 2014. And, hoo lawd, are they unsettling as all get out. Not that Vera Farmiga has to do much to creep us out, but still: these new clips don’t hurt that feeling either.
Horror’s on the rise in television these days, with numerous TV shows giving us a scary alternative to the funny or dramatic fare that TV usually offers. With Halloween just a day away, we thought we’d share our list of the current -- meaning they've aired new episodes at some point this year -- TV shows that scare us the most, whether it be because they tap into our deepest fears, cause our stomachs to turn or simply because they keep us on the edge our seat, holding our breaths and wondering what might happen next, here are our five favorite scary shows.
One of the reasons we tune into award ceremonies is because we want to see our favorite talented TV personalities rewarded for the good work they do for our entertainment. As fans, the only thing we really stand to gain out of their victory is the satisfaction of knowing that we're not the only one who appreciates how awesome they are. With that in mind, here are our personal picks for who want to see take home an award at the Emmy's this Sunday night.
Horror on television has gotten better and better in recent years, with A&E’s suspenseful and well-developed series, Bates Motel becoming one of the latest additions to the genre. The series is a re-imagining of sorts of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, set in the present and following a young Norman Bates and his relationship with his mother, Louise. The first season became a critical and ratings success for the network and has already earned a Season 2 renewal on A&E.
To some of us, she'll always be a little bit Clare Arnold from Beverly Hills, 90210, but more recently, Kathleen Robertson showed off her sexy, confident side in Starz's Boss, and coming soon she's headed to A&E's Bates Motel, playing another sexy, confident character from the sound of it. Robertson joins Michael Vartan among the newcomers to the creepy, suspenseful cable drama.
Hearing word that three actors have signed on for roles in Bates Motel, I automatically begin to feel sympathy for their characters, especially when it's announced that these characters will be involved with Vera Farmiga's Norma Bates. After just one season of the Psycho prequel series, we're already starting to see how badly things seem to work out for some of the people whose paths cross with Norma and Norman Bates.
We're close enough to Comic-Con that those of us planning to attend are likely getting anxious awaiting the finalized schedule of panels and events set to take place at SDCC this year. In the meantime, networks and studios continue to make individual announcements for panels to be featured. Among the recent announcements are BBC America's Orphan Black, History's Vikings, A&E's Bates Motel and Yahoo!'s comedy Ghost Ghirls.
Last night’s Bates Motel finale wrapped up some plotlines and left others in the lurch. Luckily, if you haven’t caught the A&E series’ big wrap-up, this isn’t a recap. Instead it’s a rundown of the show’s good ratings. As it turns out, Bates Motel did quite well during its finale, up 8% from the penultimate episode.
Bates Motel may have only put together 10 episodes in Season 1, but a lot has gone on during the A&E drama, which has introduced murders, pot plots, love triangles, and plenty of family hatred. The freshman drama is gearing up for an epic Season 1 finale on Monday that will shake things up in the Bates family universe. But first, Norma and Norman have to fight over some stupid socks.
One of the up sides to cable programming is that we don't always have to wait until the season is nearly wrapped up to find out of the show will be back for another season. Such is the case for Bates Motel. A&E's creepy new drama series has only aired three episodes so far, with the fourth ("Trust Me") set to play tonight, and A&E has already announced word that they've given the order for a second season of the series.
There is nothing quite like Bates Motel on television right now. I'm not only referring to the Pyscho-inspired source material, but also the tone of the dark and creepy new A&E series, which somehow manages to blend a modern age with a 50s-style and tone that makes the town of White Pine Bay, Oregon seem like something out of an alternative universe, and yet just accessible enough to make the series feel real. It's the perfect setting for bad things to happen, and bad things are most certainly happening.
Included as one of our ten reasons to watch television in March, the highly anticipated Bates Motel finally premiered last night on A&E. Despite being a 'prequel' to Alfred Hitchcock's classic slasher flick Psycho, the new take from Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin takes place in modern times and features a young Norman Bates, not to mention his very much alive Mother named Norma. It's not weird, as she says, boys take their father's names all the time.
