Fans of the Bates Motel series have little time to wait: the first episode of the fifth season will be shown on February 20. The next one - exactly one week later, on February 28th. The rest of the series will be released with the same frequency - once a week. In total in the fifth season - 10 episodes.
The other day, the creators of the multi-part thriller posted new promotional materials on the network. The plot of the posters echoes the promos of the previous seasons, but this time the main characters of the series - Norma Bates and her teenage son Norman - look very ominous.
Almost nothing is known about the plot line of the fifth season. Earlier, representatives of the crew mentioned that it would be very similar to the famous film Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho". At least the characters in the film (played by Marion Crane and Sam Loomis) will appear in the final episodes of The Bates Motel.
