‘The Jinx – Part Two’ Teaser: Serial Killer Robert Durst’s Jail Time Is Exposed

His confession was only the beginning…

Robert Durst’s prison sentence is captured in the highly-anticipated “The Jinx – Part Two,” airing almost a decade after Durst infamously said on camera that he “killed them all, of course” in original Emmy-winning 2015 series “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.”

“Part Two” is a six-episode continuation hailing from Andrew Jarecki. Per HBO, the filmmakers continued their investigation for the next eight years, uncovering hidden material, Durst’s prison calls, and interviews with witnesses who had not come forward until now for the second installment.

Durst was arrested in a hotel lobby in New Orleans following evidence uncovered by the filmmakers from the docuseries which was decades in the making. The show went on to be nominated for six Emmys, winning Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series and Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming.

Durst, who hailed from a billionaire real estate family, was found guilty of murdering Susan Berman in 2000. Durst was prosecuted in Los Angeles in 2020; Durst pleaded not guilty to the crime, with Berman having been found dead via a gunshot in the back of her head in late 2000.

He was also suspected of three murders since 1982, starting with the disappearance of his wife Kathleen McCormack Durst. Durst’s life story inspired the Kirsten Dunst and Ryan Gosling crime movie “All Good Things.”

“The Jinx – Part Two” is presented by HBO Documentary Films and is A Hit The Ground Running production. Zac Stuart-Pontier, director Andrew Jarecki, and Kyle Martin serve as executive producers. The limited docuseries is produced by Charlotte Kaufman and Sam Neave, and co-produced by Richard Hankin and Susan Lazarus. For HBO, the series is executive produced by Nancy Abraham, Lisa Heller, and Sara Rodriguez.

“The Jinx – Part Two” premieres April 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and will be available to stream on Max. Check out the teaser below.
