The Bates Motel is open for another season. On Monday, April 7 TVLine broke the news that the A&E television drama "Bates Motel" has been renewed for a third season. The new ten episode season will be filmed in the fall with a spring 2015 release. The series takes the original story and puts a new spin on the characters before the events of the film.

The series is a modern day retelling of the novel turned movie "Psycho," with a teenage Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) taking over a hotel in White Pine Bay, Oregon. The horror series is one of the highest rated shows for its Monday times slot, and brings in between two and three million viewers each week.

The current ten episode season will finish airing in May. Filming for the show takes place near Vancouver and the series was created by Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin who have worked on shows like "Friday Night Lights" and "Lost."

There are still five episodes left in the second season, which introduced new characters including Norma's brother and a love interest for Norman. The new series would extend on the drama surrounding the drug business and the town politics, while exploring Norman's ever changing psyche.
