We’ve seen the OJ Simpson trial unfold slowly over the course of “American Crime Story” season 1, but in one week’s time “The People v. OJ Simpson” is going to come to its conclusion. Spoiler alert: You do know how this one ends.
We’ve seen everything from the glove to the arguments of the Mark Fuhrman tapes play out, and on next week’s finale, we will see how the show depicts the grand conclusion to this case. The synopsis below offers up some insight:
“In the season finale, the prosecution and defense make their closing statements; the jurors deliberate; and the verdict is given.”
How far ahead will the show project into the future? That is one element of the finale that we are curious of, since there is potential here feasibly to tell audiences about what happened to many of these key players after the fact. Obviously, this trial shook almost every person involved to their foundation, and many of them departed their positions and went on to do other things. Simpson was eventually arrested on different charges, and currently resides inside a Nevada prison. While there are comments through other parties about how he may feel about the show, he has not commented himself in any sort of public way.
As for a season 2 of this series, early indications are that executive producer Ryan Murphy wants to explore the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. While we’d prefer the show remain more in the true-crime realm, he’s earned a little bit of leeway thanks to season 1.
