The People v. O.J. Simpson has a dramatic ending planned

Even though everybody knows what will happen in tonight’s extended American Crime Story season finale, creators Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander explained how they approached the final episode. “It was important to us that the last episode ends dramatically, but we also knew at the time that we were going to have to hint about what was going to happen afterwards,” Karaszewski tells The Hollywood Reporter. The duo also tried, but failed, to incorporate E!’s nightly reenactments by trained actors of the subsequent O.J. Simpson civil trial. PLUS: Sarah Paulson cried when People v.
