Bates Motel renewed for two more seasons by A&E

Cuddle up with your momma, Bates Motel fans! There's good news coming your way.

A&E Network has ordered twenty episodes of the acclaimed drama series Bates Motel from Universal Television, according to a press release. New episodes of the series, which stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore, will begin production later this year and will air over two seasons, starting in 2016.

The press release doesn't specify if these will be the last two seasons of the prequel series, but one would have to imagine twenty more episodes might be more than enough to wrap up Norman Bates' pre-PSYCHO years.

In case you didn't know...

Bates Motel serves as a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film Psycho and provides viewers with an intimate portrayal of how Norman Bates unravels through his teenage years.
