Last week, the first photo from Bates Motel was released, offering our first look at Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore as her loving son Norman. Today, we have 16 more photos from this upcoming A&E series that is currently shooting in Vancouver. The series follows this mother and son as they relocate to a new town, setting up what will become the infamous title locale, several years before the events that unfold in Alfred Hitchcock's seminal horror classic Psycho. Along with more photos of Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore, these shots offer our first look at Max Thieriot as Dylan Bates, Norman's older brother, newcomer Olivia Cooke as Norman's high school classmate Emma Decody, Mike Vogel as Deputy Zach Selby, Nestor Carbonell as Sheriff Alex Romero, and Nicola Peltz as Norman's potential love interest Bradley. Check out these photos and their captions which offer more information about the series, before it debuts on A&E in 2013.
