Bates Motel checks out after five seasons, but showrunner Kerry Ehrin has refused to close the door on a future sequel series, telling Yahoo TV:
“[I haven’t given thought to a sequel] today. It’s a world I love, so I would never say never.
While Bates Motel was envisaged as a five-season story, was Ehrin ever tempted to extend the series into Season 6? Only briefly:
“Yeah. There was a part of me that wished that was true, but I very strongly felt, as did Carlton, that we were telling the story in the right amount of episodes, and that we didn’t want to ruin it by stretching it out. We wanted every episode to have an impact and be meaningful.
Will Bates Motel revive for a sequel series in years to come? Stay tuned…
