AFTERBUZZ TV — Bates Motel edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of A&E’s Bates Motel. In this show, hosts Joe Braswell and Du’a Kaissi speak about season 4, episode 5 of Bates Motel.

Bates Motel is an American drama thriller television series developed for television by Carlton Cuse, Kerry Ehrin and Anthony Cipriano, and produced by Universal Television for the cable network A&E. The series, being a “contemporary prequel” to Alfred Hitchcock‘s 1960 film Psycho (based onRobert Bloch‘s novel of the same name), depicts the life of Norman Bates and his mother Norma prior to the events portrayed in the film, albeit in a different fictional town (White Pine Bay, Oregon, as opposed to the film’s Fairvale, California) and in a modern setting.

The series begins after the death of Norma’s husband, when she purchases a motel located in a coastal Oregon town so she and Norman can start a new life.The series is filmed outside of Vancouver in Aldergrove, British Columbia, along with other locations within the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. It premiered on March 18, 2013, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

A&E chose to skip a pilot of the series, opting to go straight-to-series by ordering a 10-episode first season. On April 8, 2013, A&E renewed Bates Motel for a second season,which aired from March 3 to May 5, 2014. On April 7, 2014, Bates Motel was renewed for a 10-episode third season, which will premiere on March 9, 2015. The series’ stars – Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore – have received particular praise for their performances in the series.
