Overview

Intended as a prequel to the events depicted in Alfred Hitchcock's iconic film "Psycho," "Bates Motel" follows Norma Bates' (Vera Farmiga) attempt to start a new life running a small town motel with her son, Norman (Freddie Highmore), after the death of her husband. Her hopes are almost immediately dashed when she is sexually assaulted by the motel's former owner, which starts a chain of events that leave her both desperate for income and under the watchful eye of Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonelle). The family's twisted dynamics become clearer as time passes, particularly with Norman, whom she constantly manipulates, though her relationship with Norman's brother Dylan (Thieriot) is also far from healthy. Norman, despite suffering from hallucinations and blackouts, tries to have a somewhat normal high school experience, and attracts the attention of Emma (Olivia Cooke), an intelligent classmate who suffers from cystic fibrosis. Though Norman is fond of Emma, he becomes obsessively drawn to Bradley (Nicola Peltz), a pretty, popular student who opens up to Norman in the aftermath of a death in her family. When Norma's relationship with police deputy (Mike Vogel) goes terribly wrong, Norman's behavior becomes increasingly disturbing, and before long he finds himself suspect in a shocking act of violence.From the producers of Lost and Friday Night Lights comes a modern day prequel to the iconic horror film Psycho. After finding his father dead, teenager Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and his mother, Norma (Academy Award® nominee Vera Farmiga), purchase a motel and move to White Pine Bay in search of a new life, but they soon discover this idyllic seaside town hides some deadly secrets. Unable to trust anyone but each other, the two indulge in a deeply twisted relationship that raises the question: does mother really know best? Watch every episode back-to-back and uninterrupted of the murderously suspenseful drama that tells the story behind one of the most iconic characters in movie history.
