Bates Motel’s Latest Season Has A Lot In Store But The Show Might Not Be Extended As Far As You Would Want
In a recent interview, executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin spoke extensively about various aspects of the show including Romero’s backstory and Norma’s romantic relationships. Cuse admitted, “We actually are going to learn more about Romero’s backstory this season and actually meet a very significant character from his life.” He mentions about the building romance between Norma and Romero by stating, “Our intention is to make people want them to get together,” Cuse said of Romero and Norma, otherwise known as “Normero.” “When that might happen, Kerry and I wouldn’t want to say right now, but that’s exactly what you should be feeling. You should be wanting them to get together. We feel like we have an epic couple with Norma and Romero. We plan to deliver on the promise of that at some point, in some form.”
Ehrin went on to explain the character of the new addition on the show, Bob Paris. She said, “Kevin Rahm (Bob Paris) plays a White Pine Bay local, a prominent person, wealth, affluent and somewhat of a antagonist. The really cool thing about his role is that he is someone who grew up with Alex Romero. And through the storyline this season we get to peel back some layers of Romero, which is so much fun as certainly as writers.”
She adds, “But it just as a viewer, I think it’s going to be so interesting to get inside this incredibly stoic guarded person and see a little more of what makes them tick and what they need and what they’re hiding from themselves,” she continued. “So that’s just been a really fun storyline.”
The creators of the show are apparently thinking about ending the show after five seasons in order to do justice to the quality of each episode and the show as a whole. Apparently the audiences had a very positive reaction to this and the producers are very pleased with this support. Carlton Cuse stated, “It’s gratifying to see people appreciate that decision. This is not an open-ended narrative. We consider ‘Bates Motel’ to be a story with a beginning, middle, and end, and Kerry and I want to bring the story to an end in our own terms.” He added, “I think Kerry and I feel like we got the show to the place we wanted it this season. I think you’re always struggling with a show to fire on all cylinders, and it takes so much alchemy to get everything working as you want it.”
