"Bates Motel" will be open another season.
A&E ordered a second 10-episode season of the thriller series on Monday after premiering in March to strong ratings and good reviews.
The series, designed as a sort of contemporary prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 masterpiece, "Psycho," stars Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his mother, Norma.
As anyone who has seen the film knows, young Norman will eventually wander around his house dressed like his dead mother, whom he keeps in his bed as a mummified skeleton. But that will be a few seasons down the road.
