Developed by ‘LOST’ showrunner Carlton Cuse, the show chronicles the early days of famed ‘Psycho’ killer Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) examined in a modern context, but is his relationship with mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) every bit as twisted as we imagine? Check out a creepy new teaser for ‘Bates Motel’ inside!
Though still largely shrouded in secrecy, we have a strong feeling ‘Bates Motel’ may prove to be one of the creepier TV series in years, judging by the recent string of teasers. A&E has released yet another brief snippet from the series, which debuts on Monday, March 18 the first that allows the mother-son pair to truly channel the unnerving relationship that will one day produce the titular ‘Psycho.’
In addition to Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga as the titular Bates clan, the series also includes Max Thieriot as long-lost Bates brother Dylan, ‘LOST’s’ Nestor Carbonell as “edgy” Sheriff Alex Romero, Mike Vogell as his deputy Zach Shelby, Olivia Cooke as Norman’s handicapped friend Emma Decody (seen in the first poster), and ‘The Last Airbender’s’ Nicola Peltz as high school it-girl Bradley. ‘LOST’s’ Carlton Cuse acts as showrunner to the series, with ‘Friday Night Lights’ scribe Kerry Ehrin writing.
