I absolutely love this show. So, I went and looked up the answer to your question, and this is what I found. "On April 8, 2013, A&E renewed Bates Motel for a second season. It is set to air in 2014 and filming will begin in the summer (July/August) of 2013." Wow, almost a whole year that we have to wait, that stinks! But, Wow Hoo, I can't wait!
