We knew the upcoming fifth season would be the show’s last and tie up the Norman Bates we meet in Hitchcock’s original movie but just how do we get there?
Well it seems we have jumped ahead about two years since the shocking ending of season four:
Returning stars include Freddie Highmore playing Norman Bates, Vera Farmiga starring as his “Mother” Norma, Max Theriot as Norman’s half-brother/cousin Dylan Massett, Olivia Cooke as Emma Decody, and Nestor Carbonell as Alex Romero. Also returning are Kenny Johnson and Ryan Hurst. Newcomers to the show this season include Rihanna, Isabelle McNally, Austin Nichols, and Brooke Smith.
Bates Motel opens for its final season on February 20th 2017.
