‘Bates Motel’ First Look Brings ‘Psycho’ to TV

The origin of Psycho will be explored in A&E’s new series Bates Motel, a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece starring Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates and Janet Leigh (Halloween: H20) in the most famous shower scene ever filmed. 


 A new trailer for the series was revealed this week, which you can watch in the player below, and then scroll down to view both of the first two teasers previously released and a few character photos.


Freddie Highmore (August Rush, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) is the new Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga (Orphan, The Conjuring) is his mother, Norma.

Executive produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost), Bates Motel will air on the A&E network starting in March 2013.
