It’s almost time for “Bates Motel” to reopen for business. A&E has released a trailer for Season 2 that teases very little, but still should be enough to get viewers excited.
Like the poster released back in September, the new trailer shows the lights turning back on in the Bates Motel sign. It then shows the simple “re-opening in 2014” log line that the network has been using to tease Season 2’s premiere date.
An earlier trailer showed off Norman’s taxidermy tendencies and gave a hint at the way fans know we will end up going psycho. This one is simpler, and still doesn’t show any actual footage from the upcoming season.
However, a first-look photo of Season 2 did show Norman, Norma and Dylan at Miss Watson’s funeral. When Zap2it spoke with Nestor Carbonell and Norman Reedus earlier this year, they both promised that Season 2 will resolve the mystery surrounding Miss Watson’s death early on, and that it might not be as easy an explanation as people think.
“At that moment with Miss Watson it’s not immediately obvious which conclusion to draw. This show is infinitely more exciting for that, especially when your main characters are so ambiguous, you find yourself almost rooting for Norman despite the fact you know he’s going to become this infamous serial killer,” Highmore said.
“Bates Motel” Season 2 is slated for a March 2014 premiere. Newcomers to the show include Kathleen Robertson, Rebecca Creskoff, Kenny Johnson, Paloma Kwiatkowski and Michael Vartan. The new season will introduce the fruit cellar.
