The prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” “Bates Motel” finally comes to an end with its 5th season. Fans are up to witness through their TV screens how a seemingly normal teenager in the name of Norman Bates will lose his mind and turn into one of the most horrifying serial killers in the history of movies. Executive Producers of the show promises a beautiful and emotional ending.
When the showrunners to the critically acclaimed Motel Bates announced in Comic Con San Diego that they are officially ending the series in Season 5, fans were surprised and that is an understatement.
But the producers insisted that when Season 1 took off, they immediately thought that they’d only stick until Season 5 as they already thought about the perfect ending.
Although a specific date for its release hasn’t been confirmed yet, Motel Bates Season 5 is expected to air sometime in March 2017, Variety reported. The 5th season is also expected to introduce another character in the show’s homage to the “Psycho” franchise.
While “Bates Motel” has succeeded both in honoring the greatest horror movie and being a successful creepy TV series, it will come to an end as it introduces Marion Crane, who will be played by superstar singer Rihanna, Cinema Blend reported.
Rihanna will appear in multiple episodes and the show will perhaps re-enact the famous shower scene that has become one of film’s most iconic moments. “Psycho” is famous for its plot twists and turns but it has climbed into stellar success when Marion Crane stepped into her doomed shower scene.
Vera Farmiga is also expected to reprise her dead character Norma Bates. This season will be the unravelling of Norman and he will be having visions of his dead mother doing simple chores around the motel. In Norman’s mind, his mother is still very much alive and the producers promised this will have bone-chilling moments played out in the entire 10-episode Season 5.
