A&E has released five impressive teaser posters for their upcoming new series Bates Motel. The show acts as a prequel to Hitchcock’s classic Psycho, as it centers on the relationship between a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother (Vera Farmiga). The series also stars Nestor Carbonell, Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, and Mike Vogel with co-showrunners Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights) running things. Bates Motel premieres on A&E on March 18th.
In Bates Motel, following the tragic death of her husband, Norma Bates buys a motel on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of White Pine Bay, seeking a fresh start. As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn’t quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive – and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets.
