The Bates Motel will soon be closed. But before that happens, the series will be returning for its fifth and final season on February 20 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on A&E.
Actress Vera Farmiga returns for double duty as executive producer while also reprising her role as Mother who is very much alive and well but only in the twisted, complicated mind of Norman Bates, played by Freddie Highmore.
Here’s what we know about season 5: “New faces find their way to the Bates Motel this season to further complicate Norman’s life and threaten to unearth his dark secrets. Viewers will finally meet the iconic Marion Crane played by Rihanna. In addition, a new couple in town, Madeleine Loomis, played by Isabelle McNally and her husband Sam Loomis, played by Austin Nichols, as well as Sheriff Dana Greene, played by Brooke Smith become entangled in Norman’s life causing a chain of events that could blow the lid off Norman’s secret life. Lastly, fans will be greeted by familiar faces when Caleb Calhoun and Chick Hogan return with agendas of their own.”
