A couple of tantalizing teaser trailers for A&E’s upcoming Psycho prequel series Bates Motel have been released. We just recently saw a batch of images from the show that gave us a look at Freddie Highmore as the legendary Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his mother, Norma, and at the time I noted a bit of a Twin Peaks vibe. That comparison seems even more valid after these two trailers, which tease a couple of haunting scenarios and hint that everything might not be what it seems at the eponymous Bates Motel. The series comes from Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Friday Night Lights alum Kelly Ehrin, so I’ve got high hopes for this one.
Hit the jump to watch the teaser trailers. The series also stars Nestor Carbonell, Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, and Mike Voel. Bates Motel premieres on A&E in Spring 2013.
We recently got our first look at A&E’s highly anticipated Psycho prequel series Bates Motel by way of a couple of images of stars Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga as Norman and Norma Bates, and now a large batch of new images from the series has landed online. The drama from Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Friday Night Lights alum Kerry Ehrin centers on the relationship between a young Norman Bates and his mother, and the show looks to feature an appropriately colorful cast of characters. There’s a bit of a Twin Peaks feel from these images, so hopefully Cuse and Ehrin have crafted a creepy and fun take on the burgeoning serial killer. A&E ordered Bates Motel straight to series instead of waiting to see a pilot first, so the show is poised to debut in Spring 2013.
Hit the jump to check out the images which feature Max Thieriot as Norman’s older brother Dylan, Olivia Cooke as classmate and fellow outcast Emma Decody, Mike Vogel as Deputy Zach Shelby, and Lost alum Nestor Carbonell as town Sheriff, Alex Romero.
