‘Bates Motel’ Season 2 Spoilers: Preview the Horror With New Synopsis and Interactive Website
We’ve still got February standing between us and our March 3 reservation for the ‘Bates Motel‘ season 2 premiere, but that shouldn’t stop the iconically creepy property from laying out a few fresh spoilers now and again! The full synopsis for our second year in White Pine Bay has hit, along with an exciting interactive website full of ‘Bates Motel’ secrets, so take a look at the latest from what A&E’s psychological thriller has to offer this year!
While we’ve yet to see a proper trailer for the new season of A&E’s Vera Farmiga-Freddie HIghmore horror-drama, the latest word on ‘Bates Motel”s March 3 release promises plenty of White Pine Bay mystery ahead, particularly as Norman becomes fixated on Miss Watson’s mysterious death. Norma will have to deal with a few old ghosts resurfacing, while the town itself seems poised for a war between rival drug dealers.
Says A&E’s official synopsis of ‘Bates Motel’ season 2:
In season two of “Bates Motel,” executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost“) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights“) dig deeper into the twisted world of the Bates family. 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 (“HawthoRne,” “Alias”), Kathleen Robertson (“Boss”) Paloma Kwiatkowski ( Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Rebecca Creskoff (“The Practice,” “Hung”), Kenny Johnson (“Sons of Anarchy“), Michael Eklund ( 88 Minutes, “Supernatural“) and Michael O’Neill (“Dallas Buyers Club,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The West Wing”).
As if that weren’t enough to pique our interest for the March 3 premiere, A&E has set up an official interactive ‘Bates Motel’ website, where you can explore the entire iconic location yourself, unlocking plenty of secret content, footage and teasers among the various rooms for rent.
Well, what do we think? Will ‘Bates Motel’ get a five-star rating in its second season? What murderous mysteries might you unlock when you tour the old place for yourself? Check out the latest on season 2 above, and give us your predictions for the March 3 premiere!
