The big news was confirmed over the weekend at Comic-Con. Rihanna even recorded a video message for fans, revealing that she would be taking on the role of Marion Crane in the “Psycho” prequel series.

“We wanted to thrust the iconic role into a contemporary spotlight and redefine it in a meaningful and exciting new way. We also heard Rihanna was a fan of the show, and we were huge fans of hers, so it was the perfect collision of creativity and fate,” executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin said via a statement released after the casting announcement at Comic-Con on Friday.

‘Bates Motel’ Final Season Will Be Different From ‘Psycho’

While “Bates Motel” fans expect to see Rihanna’s Marion Crane die in the iconic shower murder scene, there is sure to be a modern and updated twist to the storyline and scene.

“Season five is about the ways in which our show does and more specifically does not intersect with the events of Psycho,” Cuse revealed. “We are going to see a version of Norman that is much closer now to the one in the movie, but the way in which he acts and the events in the story will not be the same as the movie. They will cross paths with some of the events in the movie and lead to an ultimate resolution. What that resolution is and how that plays out is something that will be not disconnected to the movie Psycho but will be very much our own story in the same way the entire series has been.”

Fans couldn’t be more excited about the addition of Rihanna to the “Bates Motel” cast, and can’t wait to see what the fifth and final season of the show will bring after the epic final two episodes of Season 4 shocked us all.
