‘Bates Motel’ Season 4 Poster: Norman or Norma?

Bates Motel Season 4 Poster

Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates is featured front and center on the new poster for season four of Bates Motel, clutching his mother’s pearls. That smile is so wicked… Season four is obviously going to be a wild one for the Bates family. Bates Motel is written and executive produced by Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, with season four set to premiere on March 7, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT.

The Bates Motel Plot:

Bates Motel, a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film Psycho, will return with ten new episodes that further reveal Norman’s continued downward spiral and the effect it has on the family. This season Norma (Vera Farmiga) 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 Norman’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?
