A contemporary prequel to Psycho, giving a portrayal of how Norman Bates' psyche unravels through his teenage years, and how deeply intricate his relationship with his mother, Norma, truly is.
When Ryan Hurst was offered the role of Chick Hogan, he thought it was too similar to other characters he had played before, so he told showrunner Kerry Ehrin that he would accept the role if he could make it personal.
Mother, are you sure we shouldn't call for help?
Norma Louise Bates: No one's ever going to help us, Norman. No one's ever helped us.
In "Psycho" Norman tells Marion that he only stuffs birds. He stated he could never do a dog or a cat like other people. However, in "Bates Motel" he first acquires his interest in taxidermy with a dog and is seen working on other mammals as well.
Names in the main credits have one letter (in each part of the name) in blue neon, like the Bates Motel sign. The letter is usually at or near the middle of the name.
