‘Bates Motel’ to Return on A&E on March 7

Ten New Episodes Ordered for this Upcoming Fourth Season

The upcoming fourth season of “Psycho” prequel “Bates Motel,” featuring Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore, will open on A&E on Monday, March 7 at 9 p.m. ET. Ten new episodes have been ordered for this coming season, and “Bates Motel” is already confirmed to return for season five in 2017. As for the ending we are all expecting, there could be an alternate conclusion according to series creator Carlton Cuse.

The logline for this fourth season: Norma (Vera Farmiga) becomes increasingly fearful and desperate, going to great lengths to find Norman (Freddie Highmore) 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?
