OJ Simpson Could Be Released From Prison by Sunday

After nine years, the incarceration of O.J. Simpson will come to an end in the next several days, a Nevada Department of Corrections spokeswoman confirms to PEOPLE.

The former former NFL star and double-murder suspect, 70, will be released either Sunday or Monday, Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast tells PEOPLE.

Simpson’s prison term expires when the clock strikes midnight on Sunday — when September turns into October. However, because the prison system maintains minimal staffing on weekends, Simpson may not make it out on Oct. 1. It is possible he’ll be set free on Monday, Oct. 2.

“We could hold him here for weeks if we had to,” Keast says. “We don’t want to, but it’s a public safety thing.”

Keast says the Department of Corrections is expecting intense media coverage and is doing everything it can to avert a paparazzi feeding frenzy.

“If we have too many media out

FX is still "confident" that People v. OJ Simpson’s Hurricane Katrina spin-off will eventually air

Despite what you’ve been hearing, there are still plans for American Crime Story: Katrina to air on FX at some point in the future.

The dramatisation of Hurricane Katrina was the first spin-off of the Emmy-winning People v. O.J. Simpson announced and even attached Matthew Broderick, Annette Bening and Dennis Quaid to star, but was later pushed back behind a season based around the murder of designer Gianni Versace.

The latest word in July from director Anthony Hemingway was that the project had “stalled” indefinitely, but FX president John Landgraf had a more hopeful outlook at the TCA press tour on Wednesday.

A pop-up ‘OJ Simpson Museum’ is coming to LA

Now that he’s been granted parole, O.J. Simpson could be released from prison as soon as Oct. 1. But that will still be too late for him to get a look at “The O.J. Simpson Museum,” a five-day pop-up exhibition coming to the art space Coagula Curatorial in L.A.’s Chinatown Aug. 18 to 22.

Many of course believe that Simpson does not deserve a museum, even if it’s only a temporary gallery show. Coagula Curatorial owner Mat Gleason, however, says the exhibition is not intended to glorify Simpson. It’s largely a statement, he says, about the morbid fan culture around his murder trial.

“There are people to this day that say O.J. is innocent — not me — but it’s an obsession among Americans,” Gleason says. “All this stuff, this is the art of the people, the visual language of the common man.”

To display that visual language, more than 300 Simpson

Why the organizers of a pop-up ‘OJ Simpson Museum’ are displaying the artifacts of notoriety

Al Cowlings, OJ Simpson’s pal and Bronco driver, gets new USC dorm named after him

USC is one of the nation’s top-ranked universities, with its roster of world-famous alumni as well as its powerhouse Trojans football team.

So, it seems reasonable that an academically gifted young person who loves football — especially Trojans football — would want to attend USC. If that young person is lucky enough to get into this highly selective institution

This is what might be next for OJ Simpson after parole

“When the prison doors are open, the real dragon will fly out,” Ho Chi Minh once said.

After serving nine years behind bars for a 2007 armed robbery at a Las Vegas casino hotel, the prison doors are finally opening for Orenthal James “O.J.” Simpson.

On Thursday, a Nevada corrections board unanimously granted O.J. parole. He is expected to walk free as early as Oct. 1. And just like it did after his 1995 “Trial of the Century” acquittal for the horrific murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, the world is once again asking: What will life be like for a man so many believe got away with murder?

The answer, once again, seems to be in Florida.

OJ Simpson jurors reflect on the history-making trial in Oxygen’s The Jury Speaks

On Thursday, O.J. Simpson was granted parole after being sentenced to jail for his role in a 2007 armed robbery. Now, just a few days later, The Jury Speaks, the first installment of a new four-night special on Oxygen is taking a deep dive into Simpson’s history-making 1995 trial — by interviewing the jurors who declared him not guilty in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

The Simpson trial has been scrutinized and analyzed for more than two decades, most recently with the Oscar-winning documentary series O.J.: Made in America and the FX series The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. (The day Simpson was granted parole, AE announced yet another two-hour documentary special.) Oxygen’s installment seems a bit slight in comparison, and if you’ve binged either series, The Jury Speaks won’t tell you anything you don’t already know. Still, where the special succeeds is

In The Jury Speaks, OJ Simpson Jurors Share Their Side of the Story

Loving murder shows has become as basic as avocado toast and rosé.
