Status for season 2
The series is NOT renewed for a new season. It has been cancelled and there will not be a season 2
It's been two years now since the first season of Jailbirds aired on Netflix, and we still haven't received any official news from Netflix. Netflix typically renews first-season shows for a second season within 1 to 6 months of the show's first release date. As a result, we can confidently state that Jailbirds has now been cancelled and it's unlikely that Netflix will approve a Jailbirds season 2.
Jailbirds's first season premiered in May 2019. Renewal news should have come out late 2019 or early 2020 (before the pandemic started). As a result, we don't think the delay is due to the pandemic only. Jailbirds season 2 is very likely not going to happen, unless a new network picks up the show.
The series has also failed to reach 1 million households (according to our estimates), although the show still to have attracted a loyal and engaged following, for the households that did tune in to the show.
Jailbirds received fairly positive ratings with a TVscorecards score of 80%, placing it as slightly "above-average". However, we estimate that the series was watched by less than a million households on Netflix. This can explain why the show has not been picked up for a season 2 yet.
Jailbirds features the stories of women jailed in a Sacramento Prison, as they fight for love and power inside the cells. The series features the day to day life of these womens, explaning the computation of their sentences, rules inside the jail, and how these women handle their new lives in jail. The series goes deep into the stories of these women, explaning for examples how they got their sentences to start with, and what their lives were before receiving their jail sentences.
