The Sign Lives On






The haunting sign from Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 thriller has been reimagined in A&E's prequel take. The cable network used a take on the creepy image as a teaser to promote the series at the Emmys.









Now Accepting Reservations






A&E is currently filming the series in Vancouver, for an early 2013 premiere.

"We think our take on the Bates family will both be surprising and subvert expectations. We can't wait for people to check in," Cuse told The Hollywood Reporter of his take.

by Samuel Zimmerman
Nov 30, 2012



Dead bodies everywhere! The contemporary prequel series to the Hitchcock classic is setting a murderous tone.

A&E's "Bates Motel" premieres this spring and on the heels of recent photos, two brief teasers are presenting evidence of some starkly violent events.

"Bates Motel" Hits a Drama Debut High for A&E
by Matt Webb Mitovich
3/19/13



A lot of people checked into "Bates Motel" on Monday night, as the dark drama took a stab at an A&E record.

With its initial 10 pm airing, the Bates family origin story drew 3 million total viewers, with 1.6 mil landing in the 18-49 sweet spot. That demo delivery marks an A&E high for an original drama series debut.

"Breakout Kings" was the previous record holder, with 1.5 million in the demo, while "Longmire" last summer delivered a larger premiere audience (4.1 mil) but skewed older, with less than a million aged 18-49.



For the night, "Bates Motel" checked in 4.6 million total viewers, with 2.4 mil in the 18-49 demo.

Bates Motel represents the very best of quality storytelling with an incredible cast led by Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore, A&E boss Bob DeBitetto said in a statement. We are extremely pleased with the initial viewer response to this edgy and provocative series and are confident that it will continue to draw in new audiences.

The show is set in current day. The Bates Motel looks like it's from the 1950s; nothing's been done in terms of decorating for decades.

Watched the first 2 episodes. Don't like it. I don't have a problem with the changes made, I just find it dull.

It was an interesting concept, sort of a horror version of The Love Boat set at the motel. And Bud Cort was good in it.

Really like this show. The finale was great. Hope it returns next year. Norma Bates is one sexy woman.
