American Horror Story: Freak Show returns on Jan. 7 for its final three episodes and fans should not expect to be disappointed. In fact, the series goes out on an amazing (and insane) high note, and we’ve got firsthand scoop from one of our favorite cast members.
Can’t wait any longer for the last few episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show? Neither can we! The final three episodes begin airing on January 7 and, prior to the winter premiere, HollywoodLife.com spoke exclusively to Mat Fraser, AKA Paul on Freak Show, and even he said he gasped when reading the script.
‘AHS: Freak Show’ Finale Scoop
The Freak Show installment of American Horror Story has been seriously crazy so far this season. But, if you can believe it, it’s going to get even crazier!
“You will not cease to be shocked right up to and including the last five minutes of episode 13,” Mat told HollywoodLife.com when visiting the NY office. The last five minutes? Have mercy!
The actor continued on to say that the craziness “just won’t stop. And believe me, episodes 11, 12, 13 go out with a bang.” And yes, tonight’s episode is 11!
The Freakshow Welcomes Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris is joining the series beginning with episode 11, and Mat gave us some intel on who he’ll be playing and how it was to work with the How I Met Your Mother actor in his first stint back on TV.
Chester, “wears his personality slightly more on his sleeve [than Elsa], so things become apparent a bit more quickly and, obviously, people react accordingly,” Mat told us. Plus, with Chester being there, Dandy (Finn Wittrock) will get closer to the freak show.
“As we see, Dandy’s keeping checks on this character [Chester],” Mat said. “He feels like a freak himself and he’s crazy for the girls, it would be surprising if he didn’t visit again. As you say, it’s almost as he’s circling the place, getting nearer and nearer.”
Also, when it came to working with Neil himself, Mat had only amazing things to say. “He’s an amazing actor, a really nice person and a consummate professional– what an honor to work with him!”
