New ‘Bates Motel’ Trailers: Murder Has Already Begun
Certainly one of the stronger pilots we’ve had our eye on all season is that of A&E’s forthcoming ‘Psycho’ prequel TV series ‘Bates Motel,’ which re-imagines one of cinema’s most famous killers in a modern context that charts his development from mama’s boy to murderer. As much as we love the creepy posters and teasers, they’ve only taken us so far, so how would you like to see ‘Bates Motel’ open for business a bit early? Get a sneak peek with a new trailer and clip inside!
Even though A&E’s upcoming ‘Bates Motel’ will explore the troubled youth of famed ‘Psycho’ killer Norman Bates, the series won’t waste much time in getting the blood flowing. New trailers and a sneak peek of the Carlton Cuse (‘LOST‘)-fronted series from A&E show off much of the murder, mystery and intrigue created by the Bates’ initial ownership of their new motel, as well as the disturbingly close, and literally close relationship between Norman (Freddie Highmore) and Norma (Vera Farmiga) Bates.
In addition to Highmore and Farmiga as the titular Bates clan, the series also includes Max Thieriot as long-lost Bates brother Dylan (also seen in the new clips), ‘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, and ‘The Last Airbender’s’ Nicola Peltz as high school it-girl Bradley.
Catch an early sneak peek of ‘Bates Motel’ via the embedded clips below, and tell us in the comments if you’ll watch the new series when it premieres on March 18!
