Next year A&E are putting together a little show based on Norman Bates and his mother called Bates Motel. So far the show sounds very interesting and will kind of serve as a glimpse into the mind of Norman Bates. Today they released the first image from the show featuring a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga). Check it out below.
“Bates Motel” will give viewers an intimate understanding of how Norman Bates’ psyche developed from his childhood through his teen years. Fans will have access to the dark, twisted backstory and learn firsthand how his mother, Norma, and her lover damaged Norman, helping forge the most well-known serial killing motel owner in history.
Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga, Max Thieriot, W. Earl Brown, Nestor Carbonell, Mike Vogel, Keegan Connor Tracy, Olivia Cooke and Nicola Peltz star in “Bates Motel,” which is currently under way in Vancouver, Canada. It premieres in 2013 on A&E.
