Norman Bates Will Creep You Out for Two More Seasons!

What does it say about us that we're pumped for this multi-season renewal?

A&E has ordered two more seasons of Bates Motel, the network announced Monday.

"The vision of our incredible creative team has exposed the steady breakdown of the relationship between Norman and Norma Bates," A&E and Lifetime's Executive Vice President and General Manager Rob Sharenow said in a statement. "We are thrilled to bring fans two more seasons to witness the next stages of Norman's transformation into the most notorious psychopath in cinematic history."

Bates Motel, which recently ended its third season, will go back into production later this year on 20 more episodes, which will air over the two seasons beginning in 2016.

Unfortunately, new series The Returned wasn't so lucky. A&E confirmed the show will not return (heh) next season.
