The line between prequel/sequel and fan fiction blurs further.

There have been several Psycho movies following Alfred Hitchcock’s standard-setting 1960 original, and we’ve wondered just how the prequel TV series Bates Motel would exist in relation to them. Is this a prequel, a reboot, or something else? The movies don’t have the clearest story path with respect to what is “official” or canon story, and with the series charting the purchase of a motel by Norma Bates with her son Norman in tow, we’ve wondered just what to expect.

At an event debuting elements of the show today for the Television Critics Association press tour, the show’s premiere date was announced (10 p.m. Monday, March 18 on A&E) and producer Carlton Cuse (Lost) explained that, when it comes to the film series, “We don’t really view any of that as canon.” Read More »

As a prequel to one of the most revered horror movies of all time, A&E’s Bates Motel has some pretty big shoes to fill. And while it’s unlikely to reach the same iconic status, it’s heartening to see that the first trailer actually looks pretty good. (Unlike, say, the one for the ill-received 1987 pilot of the same title.)

The new series, by Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights), follows Norman through adolescence in the present day. Freddie Highmore plays the future murderer as a sweet, shy teen, while Vera Farmiga plays the mother who literally drives him insane. The family is eager for the fresh start promised by the new motel she’s just purchased, but as we all know from Psycho, their plans don’t really go as planned. Watch the trailer after the jump.
