A&E’s Bates Motel will keep the lights on for another year.
The network just renewed the creepy horror-drama for a 10-episode second season. The show has maintained strong ratings since its premiere a few weeks ago. Bates Motel debuted to 3 million viewers on March 18 (now up to 4.5 million counting DVR), making it the network’s most-watched drama debut ever.
