The Bates Motel in south Aldergrove now has a roof.

Psycho: Fright Site Gets Roof

Aldergrove's "Bates Motel" now has a roof for the second season of the A&E series..

Film crews have returned to south Aldergrove to begin the work on the second season of the A&E series, Bates Motel, only this time the house on the hill will have a real roof.

The 13-ton roof was built and lifted atop the facade last week.

The first season’s exterior shots used computer generated images to provide the roof, while the interior shots were filmed on a set elsewhere in the Fraser Valley.

The Bates Motel in front of the house is used for both exterior and interior filming.

The hit series is a prequel to the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock horror film, “Psycho” (based on Robert Bloch’s novel).
