Bates Motel Season 3 Trailers: Norman Is Changing
Young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) is veering into Psycho territory in two new trailers for Season 3 of Bates Motel, debuting Monday, March 9 at 9 PM ET on A&E. Norman admits to his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) that he thinks something might be wrong with him, with the latest footage showing Norman clutching one of his mother's dresses, which alludes to the shocking finale in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 classic Psycho. Could we be seeing Norman actually wearing that dress by season's end? We'll have to wait and see, but his fragile psyche is clearly cracking more and more.
Bates Motel returns for a gripping third season filled with family strife, murder and mystery. This season focuses on the evolution of the Bates family and dives head first into Norman's waning ability to stay in denial about what's happening to him and the lengths he will go to gain control of his fragile psyche. The dramatic events of last season leaves Norma (Vera Farmiga) reluctantly more aware of Norman's mental fragility and is fearful of what he is capable of. After a blissful summer of closeness with his mother, living within the safe confines of home and the Bates Motel, Norman's fears about what really happened with Blaire Watson resurface and Norma questions what really happened.
One of the new Season 3 cast members, Tracy Spiridakos (Revolution) is featured in these trailers, who we know from previously-released footage will be a new guest at the Bates Motel. Other new cast members coming to White Pine Bay this season include Kevin Rahm (Mad Men) and Ryan Hurst (Sons of Anarchy). Take a look at the latest footage before Bates Motel returns next month on A&E.
