One of the most-anticipated projects in all of television right now is A&E’s Psycho spin-off. Ever since its announcement, audiences have been devouring anything related to Bates Motel, and there is finally something to show for all the hype. Behold the first two teasers for the prospective horror series from Lost co-showrunner Carl Cruise and Friday Night Lights’ Kelly Ehrin. Not much is being shown from the prequel series, but the following are definitely more intense than the ones spammed out annually for American Horror Story which is likely the inspiration for these first spots.
Stars of the series include Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore as Norma and Norman Bates respectively. Farmiga may not be a household name; however, many of us have seen her before in movies like The Departed, Up in the Air, and Safe House. Highmore on the other hand may be best remembered for his role as the title character in Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory update seven years ago.
Bates Motel premieres in the Spring of 2013.
