Creepy ‘Bates Motel’ Season 2 Trailer: Mr. Sandman Brings Norman a Dream
Indelibly damning our ‘Back to the Future‘-built appreciation for “Mr. Sandman,” ‘Bates Motel‘ season 2 has irreparably appropriated the pleasant little ditty for its first formal trailer. Drinking, drugs, sex and murder await in our latest look at the A&E prequel drama’s sophomore season, but will Norman finally be outed as the killer we all know?
The first official trailer for ‘Bates Motel’ season 2′s March 3 premiere sees Norman (Freddie Highmore) innocently singing with his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga), though the accompanying clips tease a far darker season to come. We see Norman unlocking memories and making a few new dangerous friends, while Bradley (‘Transformers 4‘ star Nicola Peltz) drinks and drives, and of course, let’s not forget the blood and bodies. Both dead and alive, of course!
Says A&E’s official synopsis of ‘Bates Motel’ season 2:
In season two of “Bates Motel,” executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights”) dig deeper into the twisted world of the Bates family. Picking up from last season, Norman (Freddie Highmore) is fixating on Miss Watson’s death while Norma’s mysterious past starts to haunt the family with the introduction of her brother. Meanwhile, Norman’s brother Dylan, (Max Thieriot), gets more entrenched in the familial drug war that fuels White Pine Bay and finds himself right in the middle of the danger as Bradley (Nicola Peltz), who remains on the hunt to uncover her father’s killer, is driven to precarious extremes. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell), is caught up on all fronts as everything in town escalates and Emma (Olivia Cooke) complicates her relationship with Norman as the duo explore new love interests, bringing new and old characters along for the ride.
Guest stars checking into “Bates Motel” throughout the new season are Michael Vartan (“HawthoRne,” “Alias”), Kathleen Robertson (“Boss”) Paloma Kwiatkowski ( Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Rebecca Creskoff (“The Practice,” “Hung”), Kenny Johnson (“Sons of Anarchy”), Michael Eklund ( 88 Minutes, “Supernatural”) and Michael O’Neill (“Dallas Buyers Club,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The West Wing”).
There’s plenty more to see in the first-look trailer of ‘Bates Motel’ season 2 above, so take a gander and tell us if you’ll make a reservation for the March 3 premiere on A&E! Do you think Norman Bates will finally go full-on ‘Psycho’ this time around?
