Here’s the first official image of Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his mother, Norma in Bates Motel, A & E’s Psycho prequel television series.

It seems like they’re keeping the original Bates house design from Alfred Hitchcock’s black and white classic. I’m still not sure that this is a good idea. Do we really need to know where Norman Bates came from?

Bates Motel will screem sometime in 2013.
