Although it’s a few more weeks before we get to watch the season 4 premiere of Bates Motel, the folks at A&E decided to give us a Valentine’s Day gift from our favorite (least favorite) couple – Norman and Norma Bates (Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga), with a cleverly titled “Netflix and Kill” video.
Check out that video plus the “Dangerous” teaser tweeted by @InsideBates below.
At first, the video is uncomfortable as we always feel during sexually charged Norma/Norman scenes, but then it gets to the horror and the crazy and the blood- the staples of this series that we know and love.
A&E also posted a teaser video on Twitter that emphasizes the downward spiral of this mother/son relationship, and foreshadows Norma’s inevitable death.
Bates Motel season 4 premieres Monday, March 7th at 9:00pm ET on A&E, followed by the series premiere of Damien.
A&E Network presents the season four return of the critically acclaimed drama, â€œBates Motel,â€ starring Vera Farmiga in her Emmy nominated role as â€œNorma Batesâ€ alongside the brilliant Freddie Highmore as â€œNorman.â€ From writers and executive producers Kerry Ehrin (â€œFriday Night Lights,â€ â€œParenthoodâ€) and Carlton Cuse (â€œLost, â€œThe Strainâ€), this season will showcase Normanâ€™s deranged descent into madness. Directly following â€œBates Motelâ€ will be the series premiere of the original scripted drama, â€œDamien,â€ a continuation of the classic horror film, The Omen from executive producer Glen Mazzara (â€œThe Walking Dead,â€ â€œThe Shieldâ€). Both series will premiere on Monday, March 7th at 9PM and 10PM ET/PT respectively on A&E.
â€œBates Motel,â€ a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film Psycho, will return with ten new episodes that further reveal Normanâ€™s continued downward spiral and the effect it has on the family. This season Norma becomes increasingly fearful and desperate, going to great lengths to find Norman the professional help he needs. This further complicates their once unbreakable trust while Norman struggles to maintain his grip on reality. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell) once again finds himself drawn back into Norma and Normanâ€™s lives. Will things finally heat up between Norma and the other man in her life, Sheriff Romero, and just how much further will he go to protect her?
