If you’re unfamiliar with the story, Robert Durst was an American real estate heir and eventually a convicted murderer. Durst had actually been acquitted of murdering his neighbour, Morris Black, until he participated in interviews for the first part of The Jinx, which led to him being charged with the murder of his friend, Susan Berman.

As the synopsis for the documentary series explains:

The 2015 global sensation The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst unravelled one of the most notorious unsolved criminal cases, exposing long-buried information discovered during the filmmaker’s decades-long investigation of real estate billionaire Robert Durst and culminated in a stunning finale.

Just hours before that last episode aired, Durst was arrested for the murder of his longtime friend Susan Berman in Los Angeles. Part Two meticulously chronicles the continued investigation over the next eight years as Durst awaited and sat trial, uncovering new information and following the prosecutor’s case as it unfolded.

Some of the events that The Jinx – Part Two will explore include how Durst went on the run after the airing of The Jinx in 2015 and was captured in New Orleans, Durst’s court case and murder trial in 2020 and his decision to take the stand. Durst died at the age of 78 in January 2022, but it’s unclear if the documentary will cover these events.

Is there a trailer for The Jinx – Part Two?

There certainly is. The trailer reveals that there will be new footage, including snippets from Durst’s real phone calls in prison, in the new season as well as plenty more interviews with witnesses close to the source.

The Jinx – Part 2 is directed by Andrew Jarecki (who also helmed Part One) and is produced by Charlotte Kaufman, Sam Neave; co-produced by Richard Hankin, Susan Lazarus and executive produced by Zac Stuart-Pontier, Andrew Jarecki, Kyle Martin.

Tune in to Binge to see the wild true story continue on April 11.
