A&E has confirmed that Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) and Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) will join us for Bates Motel Season 3. I have fallen behind on the latest season but I really liked season 1. The town was crazier than the Bates somehow and I will see if that trend continues in season 2 of the Bates Motel. Not sure if Max Thieriot will be returning because TV characters especially in horror TV shows are not immune to the writers killing characters.
