“Bates Motel” returns to A&E Network on February 20th for its fifth and final season and a new trailer is available to let all the fans know what Norman has been doing in the meantime. If you are expecting a quick-cut montage, think again. The trailer is filmed more closely to single-shot format even though there are a few cuts throughout. This format shows us a great walk-through of the house and what has been going on since last season. Don’t expect much dialog either. In fact, there are only six words total. Regardless, the trailer can be best described as “chilling.” Check out the synopsis and the trailer below.
Synopsis: The haunting fifth and final season of the critically acclaimed drama, “Bates Motel,” from writers and executive producers Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) and Carlton Cuse (“Lost, “The Strain”) will premiere on Monday, February 20 at 10PM ET/PT on A&E. Fan favorite and Emmy-nominated actress Vera Farmiga returns for double duty as executive producer while also reprising her role as ‘Mother’ who is very much alive and well but only in the twisted, complicated mind of ‘Norman Bates’ played by Freddie Highmore. In addition, eight-time Grammy Award winner and series super fan Rihanna checks in to play the role of ‘Marion Crane,’ putting a newly reimagined and contemporary spin on the iconic character.
