On March 18th A&E will be unleashing their Psycho prequel series Bates Motel starring Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga. To me it looks like more of a reboot because he’s got earbuds and all the tech seems modern. Still, I’m pretty excited about the new show.
Along side them in the cast are Nestor Carbonell, Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, and Mike Vogel.
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.
