Last week we brought you three new promos for A&E's "Bates Motel", and today we've got five posters for the Psycho show. Using a few images we've seen in the ads like a severed hand and a burning, hanged body, the one-sheets continue to trumpet the idea that this is going to be one disturbing series. And given the subject matter, there's no reason it shouldn't be! (And it seems as though marijuana figures into the plot somehow.)
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.
The series stars Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “The Departed”), Freddie Highmore (“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Finding Neverland”), Max Thieriot (“Disconnect”), Olivia Cooke (“Blackout”) and Nicola Peltz (“The Last Airbender”). Season one also co-stars Nestor Carbonell (“Lost,” “The Dark Knight Rises”) and Mike Vogel (“Pan Am”).
"Bates Motel" premieres on March 18th.
