A&E's "Bates Motel" is only two months away; are we excited yet? The prequel series to PSYCHO premieres on Monday, March 18 at 10 PM ET/PT, and in an effort to prep you for your stay, the channel has passed along three new promos for the show, which you can watch below.
Called, in order, "Hand," "Breath" and "Dance Party," all three give varying looks at the weird world Norman Bates and family will be inhabiting. The "Dance Party" ad is particularly interesting, as it shows off a side of the series that we haven't seen before.
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”).
