The first season of A&E’s drama series Bates Motel will receive its UK premiere on Universal Channel on Thursday September 12th at 9pm, it has been announced.

Created by Carlton Cuse, Bates Motel was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho and picks up as Norma Bates, following the tragic death of her husband, buys a motel on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of White Pine Bay, seeking a fresh start. As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn’t quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive – and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets. Bates Motel is produced by Universal Television and stars Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga, Max Thieriot, Nicola Peltz and Olivia Cooke.

    I think Norman has had some sort of mental fracture and he has caused or even physically killed his farther, mother is protecting son but she scared of him, of what he is capable of.

    this show about mrs and master bates is utter garbage and an insult to the late great hitchcock

    The program would be better with less adverts, 10 past the hour, 20 past the hour an 33 mins past the hour? ??

    Well, back to the Bates Motel we go. From the Hitchcock classic, and the sequels that followed, we get this new makeover featuring two of our most notorious screen icons, Norma and Norman. It is anyone’s guess as to whether this new incarnation will hold up today as a modern series presentation. I would assume all Psycho fans in general would be prepared to give this it’s chance.
