A&E renews "Bates Motel" for second season
(Posted on 4/8/13 at 2:13 pm)
I've enjoyed it so far, so I'm glad it's getting a second season. Hope "Hannibal" does too, although I'm not optimistic in NBC's ability to continue good programming.
quote: From Universal Television, the Psycho prequel ranks as A&E's most-watched scripted drama in network history among adults 18-49 and 25-54. The series premiere drew 4.5 million total viewers and 2.5 million in both 18-49 and 25-54 when factoring in Live+7 figures. The series held up well in its second airing, jumping 6 percent among the 25-54 set against increased competition in its Mondays at 10 p.m. slot.
The second season will again feature 10 episodes and come from showrunners Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, who use Psycho as a inspiration to help tell the story of Norman Bates' (Freddie Highmore) formative years growing up with his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga).
