The Jinx was the true crime documentary that shocked the world when its subject, Robert Durst, admitted to multiple murders whilst alone and still wearing a microphone.

Now the creators of the groundbreaking series are ready to return with new evidence, interviews, and insight into the convicted killer's life behind bars after the original documentary was released. While the response to the original series meant that much of the real-life events garnered huge public interest, there are still things that people will only find out through the new series.

Here is everything that we know so far about The Jinx — Part Two.

Directed by Andrew Jarecki —who helmed the first series and the 2010 film inspired by Durst's wife's disappearance All Good Things— the new documentary will continue the filmmaker's investigation into Durst's crimes.

The 2015 documentary examined three cases linked to New York real estate heir: the 1982 disappearance of his wife Kathleen McCormack, the 2000 murder of Susan Berman, and the 2001 killing of his neighbour Morris Black in Galveston, Texas. Durst approached Jarecki about being interviewed for the documentary after the release of All Good Things, and it was the first time he agreed to speak with a journalist.

In Part Two, Jarecki and HBO will explore the eight years since the original series came out and the murder trial that led to Durst being convicted in 2021. It will contain new interviews with witnesses who had not come forward before, it will uncover hidden material, and it will also include Durst's prison calls.

What happened to Robert Durst?

After a Hollywood film about him, an HBO documentary full of seemingly damning statements, and decades of suspicion, Durst is now on trial for murder. In opening statements Wednesday, prosecutors will argue Durst killed his close friend Susan Berman before New York police could interview her about the 1982 disappearance of Durst's wife.

As a result of the evidence presented in the documentary, and the recorded confession that features in the documentary's finale, Durst was arrested and was charged with the 2000 murder of Susan Berman. He was arrested the day before the finale aired on TV in 2015.

Durst was put on trial and convicted in 2021, and he was sentenced to life imprisonment. Previously, Durst was charged with murder in the 2001 death of his neighbour Morris Black, he was acquitted of the crime.

He was later charged with second-degree murder in the disappearance of McCormack in October 2021. However, Durst died on 10 January, 2022 from a cardiac arrest before he could be put on trial.
