Bates Motel’s third season will arrive in the UK in April just weeks after it airs in the US.
The show will pick up after Norman (Freddie Highmore) managed to cheat a lie detector test whilst being quizzed about the death of his teacher. Norma (Vera Farmiga) and Dylan (Max Thieriot) were as surprised as we were but Norman gave a knowing smile and it’s clear he’s progressing to the Norman Bates we know from the Hitchcock movie.
The first episode of the season is A Death in the Family. Norma exerts her authority over her son, Norman, to keep in line, while Norman and Emma (Olivia Cooke) grow closer and begin to discuss their future.
Ahead of the season starting we’ve put together a gallery featuring all of the publicity shots for the show. Some of the shots recreate classic images from the original Hitchcock movie promising that the show will get even darker this season.
Tune in to Universal Channel at 9pm on Wednesday 1st April to see the season premiere. Preview the new season with our gallery below:
