A "contemporary prequel" to the 1960 film Psycho, depicting the life of Norman Bates and his mother Norma prior to the events portrayed in Hitchcock's film, albeit in a different fictional town and in a modern setting. The series begins after the death of Norma's husband, when she purchases a motel located in a coastal Oregon town so she and Norman can start a new life.

"I should’ve binged and finished all 50 episodes way back in 2016 when I was watching it with my daughter — she graduated & went off to college that year, and I must’ve gotten too busy right after that with my son’s after-school activities, life, etc… But I definitely would LOVE to be able to stream it someday & finish it, because every episode of the first 3 seasons we watched together were sooooo good!!! 🙀"
"An electrifying prequel to "Psycho", this contemporary spin mixed with the original vintage roots throughout will have you hooked & strangely rooting for young Norman! Stunning performances by Vera Farmiga & Freddie Highmore. I'm rewatching this series w/my older teen daughter & it's even better the 2nd time around!!!! (Free only on Peacock)"
"Compelling vision of Norman Bates’s backstory. Vera Farmiga walks a fine line between comedy and pathos."
