We’ve got great news for those looking to travel to White Pine Bay this spring. “Bates Motel” is reopening its doors for a fourth season on Monday, March 7.
The 10-episode fourth season of “Bates Motel” will find Norman (Freddie Highmore) continuing to spiral out of control. When viewers last saw him he was having severe hallucinations and channeling his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga). His blackout ultimately led to him killing Bradley (Nicola Peltz) in the Season 3 finale.
It’s not clear where fans will find Norman when Season 4 premieres, but his condition will have a great effect on his family. The synopsis for the upcoming installment adds that the Bates matriarch will actually become “fearful and desperate.” She’ll attempt to get Norman the “professional help he needs” – but will Norman go willingly?
As for Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell)? The White Pine Bay officer will continue to get wrapped up in the affairs of the Bates family. Fans will have to wait and see if Romero and Norma finally take their relationship to the next level – or if Norman will complicate that as well.
Newcomers this season include Damon Gupton (“The Player”),who will be playing Gregg Edwards, a resident doctor at Pineview Mental Institution, and Jaime Ray Newman (“Wicked City”), who will be portraying Rebecca Hamilton, an old love interest of Romero’s. Ryan Hurst will also be reprising his role as Chick, the gun and drug dealer that had issues with Caleb (Kenny Johnson) and Dylan (Max Thieriot).
A&E made the announcement about the “Psycho” prequel on Wednesday, revealing that the series will be paired up with the network’s brand new drama, “Damien.” Since the American version of “The Returned” was not renewed for a second season last year, A&E is launching a show based on the 1976 horror film “The Omen.” It will air directly after “Bates Motel” on Mondays at 10 p.m. EST.
