News Rihanna To Play Iconic Role Of Marion Crane In ‘Bates Motel’ Season 5 Published 4 years ago on July 23, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Bates Motel will be coming to an end, and for fans of the series it will be a sad moment. One awesome surprise to look forward to in the final season of Bates Motel will be singer and actress Rihanna, who will star as Marion Crane, played by Janet Leigh in the 1960 original. The Last season will be based closely on Robert Bloch’s Psycho, which sounds very exciting. Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin spoke about Rihanna in the starring role of Marion Crane: “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.” The final season of Bates Motel will air on A&E in the US in 2017, with a UK air date to be confirmed.
