A&E brings back “Bates Motel” in just one week. Starring Vera Farmiga in her Emmy-nominated role as Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore as Norman, the series returns for a second season Monday, March 3 at 9 PM ET/PT.
That’s not the only programming they’re providing though. Much like AMC does with “Talking Dead” and whatever the hell they called their “Breaking Bad” chat show, A&E will rehash the preceding hour with “Bates Motel: After Hours,” “ a live half-hour special event bringing the highly engaged “Bates Motel” community to life as fans interact with the show’s stars and creators sharing behind-the-scenes analysis and exclusive content” Series stars Vera Farmiga (Norma Bates), Freddie Highmore (Norman Bates), Max Thieriot (Dylan Massett) and executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin will be on hand for the initial episode.
“Bates Motel: After Hours” will be broadcast in front of a live studio audience in New York on Monday, March 3 at 11PM ET/PT immediately following the series premiere of “Those Who Kill” at 10PM ET/PT and the season two premiere of “Bates Motel” at 9PM ET/PT.
Maybe Marilyn Manson will stop by?
