The BBC has acquired all five seasons of Bates Motel from NBCUniversal Global Distribution.

The series, which aired between 2013 and 2017, is a prequel tale to Alfred Hitchcock’s seminal movie Psycho and depicts the lives of a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga).

Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisitions, commented: “Bates Motel is modern reinvention of the classic spine-tingler. Full of suspense, intrigue and unexpected twists, it will keep BBC viewers mesmerised until the very end.”

Bates Motel will be made available on BBC iPlayer soon.
