Watch: The Teaser for A&E's 'Psycho' Prequel Series 'Bates Motel' Features Freddie Highmore as Norman and Vera Farmiga as His Mom

“Norman has been through a lot. He’s a sensitive boy.”

A&E’s just released the video below featuring clips and behind-the-scenes footage from its highly anticipated new series “Bates Motel.” A prequel to “Psycho” that shifts the story to the present day, the drama stars Freddie Highmore as a young Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his darling mother Norma.

“Bates Motel,” which is being executive produced by Carlton Cuse of “Lost,” represents a move back toward smart scripted fare for a network that’s become better known, in recent years for reality shows like “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” “Intervention” and “Storage Wars.” The 10-episode series, which has nothing to do with the 1987 TV movie/failed pilot of the same name starring Bud Cort, also features Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell and Olivia Cooke and is set for a 2013 release.

wow. I'm only 16, and i have to say this looks fantastic! I am really excited to see how this all plays out! :) i found then website when looking up "independent films to watch on Netflix" . not sure what this has to do with that, but i'm glad i stumbled upon this !


This is what is wrong with America. I don't know the exact timing of when this clip was released, but I can't help feeling disgusted with A & E. It should be pulled.

Dec.14, 2012 RIP the beautiful children of Newtown. Our prays are with all the victims and their families. We pray for change.


Unsure of what to make of this. It looks good, but part of me feels uneasy seeing them do Psycho this way. I also don't like the fact that someone from Lost, one of the most overrated shows of all time is fronting this series. But If it impresses me then I'll be surprised.


Rather than to say it's the prequel, would say it's the Norman version in adolescent since it's background is now. Freddie Highmore is figure-alike a teen Norman; his acting skill is also reliable. Obviously it's not the only job for Vera Farmiga to play minor's troubled mom since Goats. Max Thieriot has shown some dark side of similar role. Meanwhile, when writing this, just happened this country's worst shooting tragedy in Connecticut. Nothing would say right now, except the real world is more schizophrenic, although the arts reflects reality. R.I.P all the victims.
