Rihanna To Co-Star In Fifth And Final Season Of Bates Motel

Rihanna to co-star in Bates Motel Season 5

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 thriller, 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 redefined horror back in the 60s and also influenced the slasher genre in a big way.

The exciting final season of Bates Motel is expected to return on A&E in 2017. Production begins this fall in Vancouver, Canada.
