Three new teasers continue to offer brief glimpses into the world of A&E’s upcoming modern day-set PSYCHO prequel series. 

The initial BATES MOTEL teasers were stark and fairly brutal. Having recently seen them with an audience, they very successfully hint at the violent nature of the series, and just what Norman and Norma are up to. The latest three remain stylish looks at a dangerous town/world. Even the “Dance Party” clip is vaguely threatening. We’ve already heard the show will see Norman in a school setting, Just what will he get himself into?

BATES MOTEL stars Freddie Highmore as the iconic Norman and Vera Farmiga as his mother. The series sees Norma Bates buy a motel on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of White Pine Bay, seeking a fresh start after the death of her husband. “As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn’t quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive—and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets.”

BATES MOTEL premieres on A&E Monday, March 18 at 10 p.m.
