HBO has ordered a continuation of The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst for 2024. Part Two of the Emmy Award-winning documentary series will return with six new episodes after nearly 10 years, chronicling the filmmakers' continued investigation of the story.

The show premiered in 2015, examining the history of the real estate heir, long suspected in the unsolved 1982 disappearance of his wife as well as the subsequent murders of family friend Susan Berman and neighbor Morris Black. Episodes featured an extended and revealing interview with Durst himself, and includes the results from nearly a decade of research by the filmmakers, who expose police files, key witnesses, unseen footage, prison recordings, and thousands of pages of formerly hidden documents.

At the end of the original series, viewers heard Robert Durst say that he "killed them all, of course." And hours earlier, based on evidence uncovered by the filmmakers, Durst had been arrested in a hotel lobby in New Orleans. Part Two will reveal new hidden material, Durst's prison calls, and interviews with people who have never before come forward.
