[TV] “Bates Motel’s” Grand Re-Opening In 2014


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.

    Your for sure not in the minority. I loved season 1 of Bates Motel. Im also biased though because I love every and all things Psycho related! I did enjoy it though (already have the Bluray waiting to re-watch!) I can’t wait for season 2 to start. Oh, Im upset that Vera Farmiga didn’t win last night at the Emmy’s. She should have one, her portrayal of Norma Bates is excellent.

    I really liked this show, I kept wanting to give up on it, but it kept on reeling me in 🙂 Farmiga is simply amazing, and they cast Norman prefectly.

    • K-Dogg

      that was perfectly, not too sure what pre-fectly is ?!?!

  • Can’t wait for it to comeback. I really fell in love with this show, and I’m always looking forward to new horror shows to get into! 🙂 Hopefully Farmiga wins an Emmy, Golden Globe, or something for her work on the show this time around. lol.

    I enjoyed the first season as well, there was a few minor things that i thought could have been better but overall it was pretty good. Plus Vera and Freddie were both great in their roles.

    Vera Farmiga was robbed at the Emmys last night. Bates Motel was one of my favorite shows this year, so I am ANXIOUSLY awaiting its return.
