‘Bates Motel’ Season 4 Sets March Premiere With ‘Damien’
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.
Per A&E’s official word, the already-renewed Bates Motel Season 4 will debut on Monday, March 7 at 9:00 P.M. immediately followed by the series premiere of ex-Walking Dead boss Glenn Mazzara’s new take on Damien. So reads the first official synopsis for Bates Motel Season 4:
This season Norma becomes increasingly fearful and desperate, going to great lengths to find Norman the professional help he needs. This further complicates their once unbreakable trust while Norman struggles to maintain his grip on reality. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell) once again finds himself drawn back into Norma and Norman’s lives. Will things finally heat up between Norma and the other man in her life, Sheriff Romero, and just how much further will he go to protect her?
Meanwhile, starring Bradley James, Barbara Hershey, Omid Abtahi, Arrow crossover Megalyn E.K., Walking Dead patriarch Scott Wilson, Justified alum David Meunier and Jessica Jones player Robin Weigert, so reads the official synopsis for Damien:
“Damien” follows the adult life of Damien Thorn (Bradley James), the mysterious child from the 1976 motion picture who has grown up seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist. Barbara Hershey stars as Ann Rutledge, the world’s most powerful woman who has been tasked with making sure Damien fulfills his destiny. Omid Abtahi portrays Amani Golkar, a close colleague of Damien’s whose fierce loyalty will be tested when he realizes who his brother-in-arms actually is. Meganlyn Echikunwoke plays Simone Baptiste, a woman whose life is thrown into turmoil when tragedy unexpectedly strikes.
