Executive Producer Carlton Cuse (‘Lost’,’San Andreas’) has let us know that ‘Bates Motel‘ is planning to introduce the audience to Marion Crane! For fans of the film that the series is based off then you know that this is a big deal. She is one of the most pivotal and memorable characters from the original film. For those with only a passing knowledge of ‘Psycho’ then you should know Marion Crane if not by name than by a specific scene. She is one of the most famous screen queen characters of all time as Marion is the name of the woman killed in the shower scene.
Yes, That shower scene.
In a recent interview Cuse teased:
“We do hope to see Marion Crane next season. That will be a big moment.”
We all know the upcoming fifth season of ‘Bates Motel’ is our last run in with the ‘Psycho’ universe so if you’re wondering if they’ll end things with her checking into the hotel you can worry no longer! When Cuse was asked if the character would appear in multiple episodes he said “yes” meaning that we’ll most likely be given a telling of the movie that spawned the entire concept throughout the series finale.
As Cuse had previously stated:
“We wanted the final season to allow us to do our version of the Psycho lore. We will be colliding with certain events in the narrative of the film, but it would be boring to just recreate Psycho.”
With how successful they’ve brought Norman Bates to the small screen so far I am very curious to see what their unique twist on the film adaptation will end up being.
Are you looking forward to the end run of ‘Bates Motel’? How do you think they’ll give us a recreation of the shower scene that started their popularity in horror films? Share your thoughts below!
