As we’ve known for a while now, Bates Motel will end after Season 5 in 2017.
While A&E still hasn’t confirmed it, EP’s Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin maintain that as far as they’re concerned, they wont be taking the series into Season 6, per TVLine:
TVLINE | So, I have to ask. Is next season really the final season? Because A&E hasn’t confirmed that it is…
EHRIN | It’s our final season. [Laughs]
CUSE | We’ve said for a long time that we wanted the show to be five seasons and done. I think that is the plan. It’s always painful because the show is successful…
EHRIN | … and we love it…
CUSE | … and we love it. But it really should end while it’s still good. And the power of these last two episodes is all part of the five-year plan. To take those big, narrative turns can only be done if you’re moving towards an endgame. It’s what’s best for the show. We have a really great Season 5 planned.
EHRIN | It’s going to be pretty epic.
It’s a very good show but after Norman kills his mother this would lead up to the story in the movie. We all know Norman finally gets caught and is institutionalized and that’s the end of the story. Trying to stretch it out into multiple seasons wouldn’t make sense. It just wouldn’t do the story justice.
But maybe Norman was hallucinating and really didn’t kill his mother at this time. I think there is more of the story to be told. I love the show and the actors!
that is a really good show even though it is sick and twisted a mother and son sleeping together how very very sick is that but it is now just getting interesting normen did not kill his mother she had an heartattack but he can,t servive without her so he steels her body from the morgue takes her home and puts her upstairs and that is the beginning of the movie physco with Anthony perkins
i no it has 2 end lake that
personally when norma died.. for me.. they might as well end the show now… I dont plan on watching it anymore now that norma is dead..they didnt have to kill her I dont care if she comes back in dreams or whatever.. its not ever going to be the same.. her and romero were really good together and now thats done with …it sucks when shows bring back people that are dead. leave them dead already
