‘Bates Motel': A&E Officially Announces Premiere Date

Bates Motel Premiere Date

Certainly one of the more intriguing new series we’ve been keeping an eye on is that of A&E’s forthcoming ‘Psycho’ prequel TV series ‘Bates Motel,’ re-imagined for the modern day with Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga as Norman Bates and his mother Norma, respectively. Previously the network has announced that the series would make its debut in March 2013, but how would you like to find out the official premiere date? Learn when you’ll check into ‘Bates Motel’ inside!

‘Bates Motel’ fans, prepare to go ‘Psycho.’ After months of speculation, A&E has finally announced that it will premiere its Carlton Cuse-helmed ‘Psycho’ prequel TV series ‘Bates Motel’ on Monday, March 18. The announcement came only minutes ago from the ongoing Television Critics Association press tour.

In addition to Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga as the titular Bates clan, the series also includes Max Thieriot as long-lost Bates brother Dylan, ‘LOST’s’ Nestor Carbonell as “edgy” Sheriff Alex Romero, Mike Vogell as his deputy Zach Shelby, Olivia Cooke as Norman’s handicapped friend Emma Decody, and ‘The Last Airbender’s’ Nicola Peltz as high school it-girl Bradley.

Granted a 10-episode straight-to-series order, the initial script was written by ‘Friday Night Lights‘ writer Kerry Ehrin. Check out a behind-the-scenes trailer of ‘Bates Motel’ below, and tell us if you’ll tune in when the show premieres on A&E March 18!
