Bates Motel Season 4 Poster: The Final Transformation Begins

Bates Motel will have you clutching your pearls in Season 4.

A&E has released the official poster for the Psycho thriller’s fourth season (premiering March 7 at 9/8c), and it features Freddie Highmore’s Norman showing off the mother of all accessories: Norma’s pearls!

The “she wouldn’t even harm a fly” tagline, meanwhile, is a nifty nod to the 1960 horror classic.

Last June, A&E renewed Bates Motel for a fourth and fifth season, a move that will allow co-creators Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse to finish out what they have long billed as a five-season tale.

“The vision of our incredible creative team has exposed the steady breakdown of the relationship between Norman and Norma Bates,” A&E General Manager Rob Sharenow said at the time. “We are thrilled to bring fans two more seasons to witness the next stages of Norman’s transformation into the most notorious psychopath in cinematic history.”

  1. Both perpetrator and accessory to murder. Perfect poster.

  2. The more and more Norman becomes a transvestite, the more likely it is that Social Justice Warriors will lash out at the show, completely ignoring its source material.

      Norman isnt a transvestite. Thanks for trying to bait people tho.

      • He dresses like a woman and thinks he is a woman. Call it whatever you want to call it, people will lash out at it.

        • Spence says:

          People are probably only going to lash out at you, with statements as ridiculous as that. Nobody watches this show thinking anything negatively about his character- everyone is fully aware of the story-wise importance of him becoming more like his mother.

        • hopefruit2 says:

          No – he dissociates into his mother’s personality, and becomes her in his dissociative state. That’s not the same as a guy dressing up in women’s clothing.

    • Steven says:

      Norman doesn’t just believe he’s a woman, he believes he’s his mother. That’s totally different.
