A&E have released an impressive new TV spot for Bates Motel Season 2, and here we finally get to see Norman Bates start to go a little mad. The calm, sinister build up of the first series would appear to be giving way for a much more frantic and nasty second series, and I am excited!
A&E Network premieres Season 2 of the critically acclaimed original drama series “Bates Motel,” starring Vera Farmiga in her Emmy-nominated role as Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore as Norman. The series premieres Monday, March 3 at 9 PM ET/PT.
In Season 2 of “Bates Motel,” executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights”) dig deeper into the twisted world of the Bates family. Picking up from last season, 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.
Guest stars checking into “Bates Motel” throughout the new season are Michael Vartan (“HawthoRNe,” “Alias”), Kathleen Robertson (“Boss”), Paloma Kwiatkowski (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Rebecca Creskoff (“The Practice,” “Hung”), Kenny Johnson (“Sons of Anarchy”), Michael Eklund (88 Minutes, “Supernatural”), and Michael O’Neill (Dallas Buyers Club, “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The West Wing”).
“Bates Motel” is produced by Universal Television for A&E Network. Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin serve as executive producers for Carlton Cuse Productions and Kerry Ehrin Productions, respectively.
Below you’ll find characters posters for series regulars Freddie Highmore (Norman), Vera Farmiga (Norma), Max Thieriot (Dylan), Nestor Carbonell (Sheriff Romero), and Olivia Cooke (Emma). Not sure where Nicola Peltz (Bradley) is; we’ll keep our eyes open in case she pops up.
