Watch: ‘Bates Motel’ Re-creates Classic ‘Psycho’ Peep Hole Scene

The upcoming third season of A&E’s “Bates Motel” may resemble Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho,” the film from which it draws inspiration, even more than usual.

The first promo for season three teases Tracy Spiridakos’ sexy debut. Freddie Highmore’s Norman Bates peeps through a hole in the wall as Spiridakos’ Annika Johnson — a mysterious new hotel guest — undresses in the privacy of her own room before stepping into the shower.

The scene is almost  identical to the famous one in the classic 1960 thriller in which Anthony Perkins’ Norman Bates spies on a scantily clad Marion Crane (played by Janet Leigh).

Season three of “Bates Motel” premieres on A&E in March.
