When A&E announced they were recreating Norman Bates’ basement on the SDCC show floor, we thought it sounded pretty cool; and now that we’ve toured it, we can assure you that it is! Check out our image gallery along with Season 3’s teaser art.
“Bates Motel’s” Comic-Con exhibit, which allows fans to interact with the taxidermy studio, contains props similar to those used on the set of the series. It also provides an opportunity to create a custom GIF with the infamous taxidermic bird inspired by the world of Alfred Hitchcock.
You can see our own Andrew Kasch along with yours truly and Uncle Creepy in said GIFs at the bottom of the page.
In addition, fans can pick up a “Bates Motel” themed temporary tattoo designed by the geek-loving artists from A&E’s upcoming series “Epic Ink.”
You’ll find the basement in Booth #4016/4018. Just look for the big “Bates Motel” sign!
The booth will be open during the following times:
Thursday, July 24: 9:30 am-7:00 pm
Friday, July 25: 9:30 am-7:00 pm
Saturday, July 26: 9:30 am-7:00 pm
Sunday, July 27: 9:30 am-5:00 pm
“Bates Motel” cast members who will be attending the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con include Emmy Award nominee and recent Saturn Award winner Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Olivia Cooke, and Nestor Carbonell. They will be joined by executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin for a thought-provoking panel discussion about the critically acclaimed drama on Friday, July 25th, from 3:30-4:30 pm in Room 6A.
Season 3 of “Bates Motel,” from Universal Television, is slated to air in early 2015.
