I seem to be in the minority of those who enjoyed the first season of A&E’s “Bates Motel” – although, I’ll admit I was completely dissatisfied with the season finale.
With my adoration for Vera Farmiga as “Norma Bates,” and the acting prowess of Freddie Highmore as Norman, I have high expectations for the second season, which unfortunately doesn’t arrive until 2014.
A&E started the PR Monday with the following teaser poster. It’s not much, but I’m sure more interesting stuff will follow closer to the season premiere.
A modern re-imagining and prequel to the movie Psycho (1960), this story begins with the earlier years of a teenage Norman Bates and his mother Norma who live in an old house overlooking the adjoining motel which they are renovating. The house and hotel both come with secrets of their own as does the new town which the Bates’ now call home.
