It’s been some time since we’ve checked in for a stay at A&E’s Bates Motel, and it seems another famous horror property will be setting up shop nextdoor this March. The network has officially set a March premiere for the fourth year of Norman Bates’ descent into madness, as well as The Omen sequel series Damien.
