Freddie Highmore On 'Bates Motel' Series Finale: 'Beautifully Written End To The Show'!

A&E’s Bates Motel wrapped up its five-season run with the episode “The Cord” last night (April 24), and now star Freddie Highmore is opening up about the epic finale.

SPOILER: “I think it was a beautifully written end to the show. I think (showrunners) Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse were so smart to refer back to the pilot and bring things full circle,” the 25-year-old actor revealed (via Variety). “It felt very satisfying and hopefully and a little heartbreaking, too. Tucker (Gates) our main director deserves so much credit. He brought so much creatively and stylistically to the show from the very beginning.”

“I don’t know whether it’s a happy end or a sad end,” Freddie added. “In some ways, it does feel like the fitting end to a love story between Norma and Norman. They couldn’t be in life but they finally are in death. I just hope that whatever I do next people will care about it as much as they do with Bates Motel. I think that’s what’s made it the most special experience was that everyone was fully committed. They were invested in it. They wanted to be there. It was a unique show.”

Pictured: Freddie joined by co-star Vera Farmiga and showrunner Kerry Ehrin at their Television Academy Event for Bates Motel held at Universal Studios Hollywood on Monday (April 24) in Universal City, Calif.

'Bates Motel' EP Talks About Season 5 Leading to Marion Crane

The fifth and final season of Bates Motel premieres tonight and the highly anticipated appearance by Rihanna as Marion Crane will be featured this year!

The show’s executive producer Kerry Ehrin says that there will be references to Psycho “through the lens of Bates Motel” this season.

“Bread crumbs are starting to be laid out in the first episode that will eventually lead to Marion Crane … People who know Psycho will enjoy it but (the season) stands on its own as a really good story,” Ehrin told USA Today.

Bates Motel's Comic-Con 2016 Panel Reveals Details About Vera Farmiga's Character Next Season!

Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Nestor Carbonell and Max Thieriot pose for photos together at the Bates Motel panel during 2016 Comic-Con on Friday (July 22) in San Diego, Calif.

During the panel, showrunner Carlton Cuse eased fan anxiety over Vera‘s character’s involvement next season.

If you didn’t know, Vera (Norma) was killed by Norman.

“There’s all these rumors she’s going to go on American Horror Story — no,” Carlton said. “She still exists in Norman’s imagination. He will become an increasingly unreliable narrator and through his point of view, we’re going to see a lot of her. She’s very much a character.”
