The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story is a popular show but can it be found on Netflix?

Currently The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story is only available for streaming via Hulu. You can also rent/purchase it to stream on Amazon but it is not included with your Amazon Prime Video subscription.

If you search for this title on Netflix you will be able to be notified when (or if) it is available for streaming on Netflix again but as of now the only place to watch it online is Hulu.

The 10 part series deals with the retelling of the dramatic OJ Simpson trial and events that led up to it. This version has been praised by the critics and was even nominated for an Emmy.

 However, Fred Goldman, Ron Goldman’s father,  had many criticisms. He felt that there was not enough material about Ron, who is only shown as a corpse.   He spoke of his concern that the generations of people who were too young to understand the events at the time would consider everything to be accurate.  

Nicole Brown’s sister, Tanya Brown, lashed out at the cast members for what she saw as a lack of consultation with the families.  The epilogue does end with photos of Nicole and Ron.

Ending somewhat the same as his life,  a depressed  Simpson stands looking up at the statue of himself in his glory as a football star with fans cheering in the background they slowly fade away as the screen turns dark.

The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story is currently streaming on Hulu.  This 10 part series retells of the dramatic story of the OJ Simpson trial.  As well as the major events that led up to it.   The “trial of the century” is brought into the lime light again, however this time we get to see what went wrong and why a murderer got to walk away.

In this version of The People VS OJ Simpson, John Travola plays Robert Shipero, Cuba Gooding Jr. plays OJ Simp and  David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian.  Many critics have praised the series, in addition The People vs OJ Simpson has been nominated for an Emmy.

The Plot

The opening scene flashes back to 1991 just after the Rodney King verdict.  At a time when Americans thought it was a good idea to riot the city of  Los Angeles.  The crime takes place on June 13, 1994.  

A neighbor finds Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman brutually murdered at her Brentwood Estate.  The police found bloody footprints, a glove that matches one found at the crime scene, and other evidence that seemed insurmountable making Simpson a prime suspect.

However,  money can buy the best lawyers and that is exactly what Simpson does in The People VS OJ Simpson.

The End

The People Vs OJ Simpson ends very similar to his career.  With a depressed Simpson looking up at the statue of himself in his glory as a football star.  In the background fans are cheering.  The screen slowly fades to dark.
