Rihanna will be stepping into the shower to take on an iconic role in the fifth and final series of A&E drama ‘Bates Motel’. The singer made the announcement via video at the show’s Comic-Con panel on Friday, revealing she will be playing Marion Crane in a handful of episodes.

"Yes, hello Comic-Con. It's your girl RiRi. And let me tell you what a bad bitch is about to do," the singer said said. "I'm about to check in to the Bates Motel very soon. And guess what else. Guess who's playing Marion. Yes, so all you Comic-Con fans, all you Bates Motel fans, stay tuned!”

After the exciting announcement the show’s executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin released a statement saying: "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 role of Marion Davis was originally played by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic Psycho.

Speaking about the show’s final season, showrunner Carlton Cuse told The Hollywood Reporter: "Season five is about the ways in which our show does and more specifically does not intersect with the events of Psycho.”

"We are going to see a version of Norman that is much closer now to the one in the movie, but the way in which he acts and the events in the story will not be the same as the movie. They will cross paths with some of the events in the movie and lead to an ultimate resolution.”

“What that resolution is and how that plays out is something that will be not disconnected to the movie Psycho but will be very much our own story in the same way the entire series has been.” ‘Bates Motel’ returns to A&E next year.
