The teasers get inside and out of the famous “Psycho” lodging as A&E gears up for the debut of the 2013 series from showrunners Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin. What kinds of horrors will young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) be subjected to by his famously manipulative mother (Vera Farmiga)?
The new teasers don’t do much to illuminate the series beyond making clear that “Bates Motel” will have a body count and it might get a little grisly. Like the teasers for the second season of “American Horror Story,” these are all about setting the mood without giving away too much of the plot. Still, I was hoping to see the incredible Farmiga (I could point to specific titles, but just watching anything with her in it), but I guess we’ll have to wait until closer to the premiere in the spring to see more.
