It’s disappointing to hear that A&E’s Bates Motel is coming to a conclusion next season, but it’s exciting to hear that Season 5 is going tie in with Alfred Hitchcock’s classic , Psycho.
That’s right! A&E made a big announcement during the San Diego Comic-con this week, revealing that Rihanna is tapped to play the iconic role of Marion Crane, formerly played by Janet Leigh.
We wanted to thrust the iconic role into a contemporary spotlight and redefine it in a meaningful and exciting new way. We also heard Rihanna was a fan of the show, and we were huge fans of hers, so it was the perfect collision of creativity and fate.
So I’m assuming fans of Psycho will get a chance to see a reenactment of the classic shower scene, which redefinedback in the 60s and also influenced the slasher genre in a big way.
The exciting final season ofis expected to return on A&E in 2017. Production begins this fall in Vancouver, Canada.
Stay tuned tofor much more updates to come.
