A&E Releases Promos for <i>Bates Motel</i>

We’re finally going to learn exactly how Norman Bates became so Psycho. A&E has released two promos for its upcoming show Bates Motel, which chronicles the adolescence of Norman Bates and life with his famously overbearing mother Norma. The show is a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Psycho and will give one of the creepiest villains in movie history a backstory.

Vera Farmiga stars as Norma with Freddie Highmore covering the role of Norman. As of now, the show has yet to get a premiere date, but watch for it in early 2013. Check out the promos for Bates Motel below.
