Bates Motel premiere date, Damien premiere date set by A&E
A&E will be checking back into Bates Motel come March.
The contemporary Psycho prequel is set to return on March 7 at 9 p.m. ET, followed by the debut of new drama Damien at 10 p.m. ET, the network announced at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Wednesday.
The 10-episode fourth season of Bates follows Norman’s (Freddie Highmore) continued downward spiral, as Norma (Vera Farmiga) becomes increasingly fearful of her son and seeks outside help. Could this be the season he finally snaps and kills mommy dearest?
Damien, meanwhile, follows the adult life of Damien Thorn (Bradley James), the child from the 1976 horror film The Omen. Previously unaware of the satanic forces around him, Damien will finally face his destiny: he is the antichrist. Damien, which hails from former Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara, also stars Barbara Hershey and Robin Weigert.
In other A&E news, the network has renewed docu-series Born This Way, which follows a group of young adults born with Down syndrome. Born This Way currently airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
