In 2015's The Jinx, filmmakers explored the curious case of convicted murderer Robert Durst, whose five words, "killed them all, of course," sent shockwaves through the nation. Now, in The Jinx — Part Two, the same team of filmmakers are back with more shocking revelations about the real estate heir and cold-blooded murderer.

Durst was accused of killing three people, including his first wife (Kathleen McCormack), a friend (Susan Berman) and a neighbor (Morris Black). Durst's story captured the public's imagination after meeting with Andrew Jarecki and Marc Smerling, two filmmakers who were following Durst's story for a documentary. He famously got caught on a hot mic during filming, saying, "What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course."

Durst was acquitted for the murder of Black in 2001; years later he was arrested for the murder of Berman the night before the final episode of The Jinx in 2015. He was charged with murdering his wife in 2021, but Durst died in 2022 before the trial began. He always denied involvement in their deaths until the smoking gun moment when he confessed to the crimes while filming.

With the new documentary set to pick up the thread, here's everything we know about The Jinx — Part Two.
