A&E Network has released the trailer for series finale of “Bates Motel.” The final episode of the contemporary prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 horror film “Psycho” will air on Monday, April 24, immediately followed by “Bates Motel: The Check Out,” a half-hour special where the main cast will answer questions from fans of the series gathered from social media.
The fifth and last season saw Norman (Freddie Highmore) dealing with the aftermath of his methodical killing of his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga). Norman struggled with his violent blackouts as his deceased mother came back from the dead and threatened to take complete control of his mind. As Norma is heard saying on trailer, “there is no going back” for Norman.
