Norman Bates can finally continue his transition to full on psycho.

A&E announced today that Bates Motel will premiere on Monday, March 7 at 9/8c followed immediately by their new series, Damien, which transitioned over to the network from Lifetime.

Norma and Norman - Bates Motel

Bates Motel Season 4 will chronicle Norman's (Freddie Highmore) continued descent into madness in which he takes on the personification of his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga).

Damien is a follow-up to the 1976 horror film The Omen, and will focus on the adult life of the titular character. Apparently, he grew up relatively normal, with no idea of all the satanic forces surrounding him, but now it's time to face the truth – that he's the antichrist.

If you've missed any of Norman's antics thus far, you can watch Bates Motel online to catch up just in time!

Bates Motel Quotes

Norman: It's hard to be lonely. But it's also hard to love people. I think that that's the trap.
Marion: Trap?
Norman: Yes. The little private trap that everyone lives in. You need people, but that need can destroy us. Once you care about someone it rules you. And who even knows at the end of the day if that person is who you really think they are? Or if they're even real at all?

Oh and by the way? My mother died. Here's your lunch.
