A&E has released a new trailer for Bates Motel Season 5 featuring a first look at Rihanna as Marion Crane. Check out the trailer for Bates Motel Season 5 below!
Bates Motel Season 5 will begin two years after the death of Norma (Vera Farmiga). Publicly happy and well-adjusted, Norman (Freddie Highmore) struggles at home, where his violent blackouts are increasing as “Mother” threatens to take him over completely. Meanwhile, Dylan (Max Thieriot) and Emma (Olivia Cooke), now with lives of their own, find themselves drawn back into Norman’s world, while Romero (Nestor Carbonell) hungers for revenge against his stepson.
Vera Farmiga will executive produce and return in her Emmy-nominated role as Norma Bates after her epic death near the end of Season 4. Max Thieriot will make his directorial debut, and Nestor Carbonell will direct for a third time. And Freddie Highmore will write his second episode alongside executive producers Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse.
Bates Motel is a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film “Psycho,” and gives a portrayal of how Norman Bates’ (Freddie Highmore) psyche unravels through his teenage years. Fans discover the dark, twisted backstory of Norman Bates and how deeply intricate his relationship with his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga), truly is.
Bates Motel Season 5 will premiere on A&E on February 20, 2017.
