THE JINX: PART TWO is the continuation of the 2015 HBO Original documentary about suspected murderer, Robert Durst. See how it all ends in 6 new episodes. Read our The Jinx: Part Two docu-series review here!

THE JINX: PART TWO is coming to HBO and Max. This is where we get to see how it all ends for accused murderer, Robert Durst. During the final episode of the first six, he seemingly forgot that he was still wearing a mic.

Then, while on his own, he said the infamous words: “Killed them all, of course!” This resulted in Robert Durst being arrested before that final episode even aired as the filmmakers had handed over all of their material to the police. With Part Two, we get the actual trial before Durst passed away.

The Robert Durst trial

I know many remember the final moments of The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst for the words “Killed them all”, but for me, it was what came later. In my house, the words “And the burping!” are what became permanently stuck.

Sure, Robert Durst just admitted out loud to himself that he killed people, but he seemed equally tormented by the fact that he was gassy and kept burping. Surely a sign that his body could no longer keep in what his mind had been determined to hide for decades.

In this new six-episode continuation titled “Part Two”, we see what happened during the trial. We also see how the filmmakers continued their investigation for the next eight years following the original 2015 documentary release.

While the original docu-series had a lot of material, there is plenty of new stuff. Not least all of Robert Durst’s many prison calls. It seems he called all his friends and acquaintances while being behind bars. Not much else to do, I suppose.

Also, he has a lot of friends who owe him much of their own success. In case you’re not too familiar with Robert Durst or have forgotten, he is a real estate billionaire, which is most likely a huge part of the reason why he wasn’t arrested sooner.

Too many well-placed friends in both high and low places. Finally, we also get interviews with witnesses who have not previously come forward.

The murder of Susan Berman

While The Jinx – Part Two may be a trial where Robert Durst is the accused, it’s also about justice for the murder victim Susan Berman. She was a longtime friend (best friend according to many, including Durst himself) and was murdered in Los Angeles.

In Part Two, it almost begins with video footage from the interrogation room where prosecutors interviewed Robert Durst after his arrest. The arrest that took place hours before the sixth and final episode of the original docu-series was aired on HBO.

The series also features a lot of interviews with key people involved in the case in various ways.

From both prosecution and defense lawyers to interviews with jurors and even the trial judge. Of course, these interviews took place after the conclusion of the trial. Still, it shows how much information the filmmakers were able to get from key players in the murder trial.

Finally, we’re getting interviews with friends and associates of Robert Durst and of his victims Susan Berman, and his first wife, Kathie Durst. Along with journalists Charles Bagli, who covered Durst for the New York Times, and Lisa DiPaulo, who reported on Susan Berman’s murder for New York Magazine.

Watch The Jinx: Part Two on HBO and Max

This HBO Original is another round of the infamous documentary series The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. With this shorter titled continuation, The Jinx – Part Two, we’re getting six new episodes. And yes, there are still plenty of new angles and details to be covered.

The docu-series is still produced and directed by the award-winning filmmaker Andrew Jarecki. He even plays a bigger part in Part Two as his documentary becomes a part of the trial in roundabout ways. After all, it was what Robert Durst himself revealed in the docu-series that led to his arrest.


There’s a podcast titled “The Official Jinx Podcast” about the development of Part One and details for Part Two episodes. From behind-the-scenes moments and to clips from the cutting room floor.

“The Official Jinx Podcast” is hosted by executive producer Zac Stuart-Pontier, and features director Andrew Jarecki. It debuted on April 8 and you can stream it on Max and other major podcast platforms.

HBO Documentary Films is usually a label that means a solid and worked-through documentary production. The Jinx – Part Two is no exception. If you watched the original “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst” then you’ll definitely want to watch these six new episodes as well.

The Jinx: Part Two debuts on HBO at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO on April 21, 2024. The episode will be available to stream on Max as well. New episodes will debut on subsequent Sundays at the same time. The very final episode of this Robert Durst saga premieres on Sunday, May 26, 2024.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
