“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 producers said in a statement.

Although Rihanna couldn’t make it to Comic-Con, she sent a video to fans saying that she’s “about to check into the Bates Motel” and to “stay tuned.”
