A&E kicks off the second season of “Bates Motel” on March 3rd, continuing its story of Norman Bates and his mother Norma. For a bit now, we’ve been craving an official synopsis for the sophomore season and, today, we finally got one!
Picking up from last season, Norman (Freddie Highmore) is fixating on Miss Watson’s death while Norma’s mysterious past starts to haunt the family with the introduction of her brother. Meanwhile, Norman’s brother Dylan, (Max Thieriot), gets more entrenched in the familial drug war that fuels White Pine Bay and finds himself right in the middle of the danger as Bradley (Nicola Peltz), who remains on the hunt to uncover her father’s killer, is driven to precarious extremes. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell), is caught up on all fronts as everything in town escalates and Emma (Olivia Cooke) complicates her relationship with Norman as the duo explore new love interests, bringing new and old characters along for the ride.
Guest stars checking into “Bates Motel” throughout the new season are Michael Vartan, Kathleen Robertson, Paloma Kwiatkowski, Rebecca Creskoff, Kenny Johnson, Michael Eklund and Michael O’Neill.
