The smash hit new series starring Freddie Highmore as a young Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his unbalanced mother will be checking in to Blu-ray in September!

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios has revealed 'Bates Motel: Season One' will have a Blu-ray release on September 17.

This re-imagining of one of Hitchcock's beloved masterpieces weaves a web of deception, murder, and unexpected twists in a small town where nothing is what it seems. The first ten episodes of the popular series also stars Nestor Carbonell ('Lost'), Max Thieriot ('House at the End of the Street'), Mike Vogel ('Cloverfield'), Nicola Peltz ('The Last Airbender') and Olivia Cooke ('Blackout'). Filled with gruesome horrors, nail-biting suspense, Bates Motel was A&E's most-watched original drama series debut in the network's history. A second season is already confirmed for 2014.

The 2-disc Blu-ray/Ultraviolet set will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Paley Center Panel Discussion with Cast and Creative Team; Deleted Scenes; and a set of limited edition collector cards taken from artwork on the show ("Jiao's Sketchbook").
