A&E has released five alarming teaser posters for the upcoming series Bates Motel. The show acts as a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s horror classic Psycho, as it centers on the relationship between a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother (Vera Farmiga). These posters show that there’s much more going on at Bates Motel than meets the eye, and it’s putting off a strong Twin Peaks vibe. Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Friday Night Lights alum Kerry Ehrin are running things behind the scenes, so there’s a lot of talent behind the show.

The series also stars The series also stars Nestor Carbonell, Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, and Mike Vogel. Bates Motel premieres on A&E on March 18th.

As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn’t quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive – and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets.
