In March, A&E will take viewers to two different small towns. In the first one, a motel offers a night of rest for some and eternal sleep for others, while in the second, those thought to be dead come back to their loved ones very much alive. We’re a couple of months away from the premieres of Bates Motel and The Returned, but newly released teaser videos offer a look at the creepy onscreen stories to come.
The 10-episode third season of Bates Motel will debut on A&E on March 9th, 2015. Returning cast members include Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates, Vera Farmiga as Norman’s mother, Norma Louise Bates, and Max Thieriot as Norman’s half-brother, Dylan Massett.

The Critics' Choice Awards are tonight and Et is with Michael Strahan as he prepares to host the big show.
The pro football hall of famer, 43, is now one of the hardest working people on television, juggling three steady jobs as co-host of Fox NFL Sunday, Live with Kelly and Michael and contributor for Good Morning America.
Strahan gets to learn from the best in the business every day, but he doesn't often emcee in front of a live audience. As the show is for the critics, Et asked the 6' 5" former defensive end his plan for dealing with any negative critiques of his hosting performance.
"As a critic, if I had to review myself I would say, 'Write something nice because [I'm] bigger than [you],'" Strahan joked. "And before they criticize I ask for everybody's address, so I know where they all live."

A&E has rewarded loyal viewers of the unsettling "Bates Motel" with a visually stunning and unnerving trailer for its third season. Based on Hitchcock's timeless "Psycho," the prequel series has firmly established its fan base in the first two seasons, with its contemporary setting adding a new flavor to the Oedipal classic. Photographer and artist Steven Sebring used more than 100 cameras to craft the season three preview that physically blends together mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) and obsessive son Norman (Freddie Highmore), foreshadowing Norman's schizophrenic collapse. Emily Wells' eerie "Mama's Gonna Give You Love" underscores this incestuous dance, adding just the right dose of creepiness. One thing is certain: The next installment of the series promises to satiate fan appetite for a twisted mother-son relationship that knows no bounds. "Bates Motel" will re-open for business on A&E, beginning March 9. Read More: »

Artist Steven Sebring created this unique preview, which makes use of over 100 cameras to create a seamless 360-degree shot of stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore in several different environments.

Bates Motel returns for a gripping third season filled with family strife, murder and mystery lead by Vera Farmiga (Norma) and Freddie Highmore (Norman). This season focuses on the evolution of the Bates family and dives head first into Norman's waning ability to stay in denial about what's happening to him and the lengths he will go to gain control of his fragile psyche. The dramatic events of last season leave Norma reluctantly more aware of Norman's mental fragility and is fearful of what he is capable of. »

Go Ask Alice: Borleteau’s Debut Examines Desire, Gender, and Maturity
Sure to be described as “European,” seemingly in the sense that it relays a familiar dynamic and predicament generally seen from a male perspective in English language cinema, actress turned director Lucie Borleteau makes an astute debut with Fidelio: Alice’s Journey. An exciting international coproduction featuring well known Greek, Norwegian and French actors, Borleteau creates an impressive character arc for its lead protagonist while sidestepping clichés of a woman navigating male spheres at almost every turn as it examines, with refreshing frankness, realities of desire vs. the eponymous notion for which it’s named.
Replacing an engineer that’s mysteriously died on the vessel Fidelio, sailor Alice (Ariane Labed) leaves behind her intense new relationship with Felix (Anders Danielson Lie). Once aboard, she discovers that Gael (Melville Poupaud) is the captain, a man she had a torrid »

Starting in March, A&E has set up a Monday night of Carlton Cuse-produced spins on genre favorites. A&E announced on Friday (January 9) morning that "Bates Motel" will return for its third season on Monday, March 9 at 9 p.m. "Bates Motel" will be followed by the first season of A&E's remake of "The Returned," which A&E hopes will do better than last spring's short-lived "Bates" lead-out "Those That Kill." "Bates Motel" is, of course, a semi-prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho," while "The Returned" is a very literal English-language take on SundanceTV's acclaimed French zombie-kinda drama "Les Revenants." While both dramas feature "Lost" veteran Carlton Cuse as executive producer, it's worth noting that Raelle Tucker ("True Blood") is running the show on "The Returned," while Kerry Ehrin is steering "Bates Motel." The "Returned" ensemble includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mark Pellegrino, Jeremy Sisto, India Ennenga, Sophie Lowe, »
