Attention Hitchcock fans: your favorite mother and son is back!
After an excruciatingly long wait, the critically acclaimed drama, Bates Motel, will return for a second season on Monday, March 3 at 9 PM ET/PT on A&E.
Series regulars are set to return as well, with Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore reprising their roles as Norma and Norman bates, respectively.
A&E recently released the official synopsis (potential spoilers below):
“Norman (Freddie Highmore) is fixating on Miss Watson’s death while Norma’s mysterious past starts to haunt the family with the introduction of her brother. Meanwhile, Norman’s brother Dylan, (Max Thieriot), gets more entrenched in the familial drug war that fuels White Pine Bay and finds himself right in the middle of the danger as Bradley (Nicola Peltz), who remains on the hunt to uncover her father’s killer, is driven to precarious extremes. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell), is caught up on all fronts as everything in town escalates and Emma (Olivia Cooke) complicates her relationship with Norman as the duo explore new love interests, bringing new and old characters along for the ride.”
Season one of Bates Motel attracted 3 million viewers and garnered Vera Farmiga an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series in 2013.
One can only imagine the plans executive producers Carolton Cuse (“Lost”) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights”) have in store for the second season.
