“The incredible writing team and talented Bates Motel cast has made this series one of the most compelling original dramas on television,” said A&E EVP David McKillop.

Bates Motel stars Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore as Norman.

Norma’s other son Dylan has proved to be an integral part of season 2 with some disturbing and shocking twists.

Star MaxTheiriot says Dylan is “totally hurt and repulsed” and he watches Norma continue on, going on a date with George (Michael Vartan).

“It will disrupt their relationship,” he says about Dylan’s relationship with Norma. “This is another thing Norma had been keeping from him and [it’s] the biggest yet. He does understand, but at the same time, he doesn’t understand why she would bring a child into the world that will instantly be despised because of the circumstances.”

Bates Motel airs Mondays at 10/9c on A&E.
