The superstar songstress appears in a spooky new trailer for the A&E drama’s final season as Crane, a role made famous by actress Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film Psycho, which “Bates Motel” is based on.
According to executive producer Kerry Erin to EW:
“We’re taking threads of that story and definitely using them so it’s recognizable, it’s just where we go with it is very different,” Ehrin told EW.
“It’s tough to be in a situation where you’re in love with a guy, and for whatever reason, he keeps stalling. You still have all this hot sex with him, and he’s saying he loves you, but he’s stalling.”
“The internal story of that, for a woman, is a really interesting one. We never really got to see that. In Psycho, you just see the outside of that more. It was trying to do a story about a contemporary woman with some edge, with some expectations, who isn’t perfect, who isn’t always perfectly sweet, who is in that situation, but we’re rooting for her to get what she wants.”
We hope to see her in multiple episodes.
