It seems the fifth and final season of Bates Motel, which begins airing on February 20, is going to be the darkest the series has ever known, and viewers can't wait to find out how it will all end for Norman Bates. In addition, eight-time Grammy Award victor and series super fan Rihanna checks in to play the role of "Marion Crane", putting a newly reimagined and contemporary spin on the iconic character.
For a multi-episode narrative, it's clear that Bates Motel will be expanding upon the role originally played by John Gavin, especially since this trio of newcomers will be used to further draw out Norman's deepening psychosis, now that he's in Full Mother Mode. Also returning are Max Thierot as Dylan Massett, Olivia Cooke as Emma Decody, and Nestor Carbonell as Alex Romero. Fans watched as Norman's unsafe transformation came full circle when he methodically murdered his beloved mother, Norma, in the final gut-wrenching episodes of season four. After her death, Norman completely lost his mind, dug up his mother's corpse and proceeded to take it home with him.
The fifth and final season picks up nearly two years after Norma's (Vera Farmiga) death and finds Norman (Freddie Highmore) living a double life. Viewers will finally meet the iconic Marion Crane played by Rihanna.
Still, fans can see more of Austin Nichols, although he'll no longer be playing Spencer. Lastly, fans will be greeted by familiar faces when Caleb Calhoun (Kenny Johnson) and Chick Hogan (Ryan Hurst) return with agendas of their own. But considering that series' executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin always planned a five-season arc for the show, what can fans expect from season 5?
