A&E has ordered two more seasons of its docuseries “60 Days In,” which will move from Indiana to Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail for its next editions.

“60 Days In: Atlanta” will premiere Thursday, March 2, at 9 p.m. ET. The show will once again focus on innocent participants who are sent inside jail and treated like any other inmate, in order to get a sense of what life is like inside the pokey.

Like the two Indiana seasons, the Atlanta seasons will be shot back-to-back. Season 3 will consist of nine undercover participants, including a special education teacher who works with at risk youth, a man who believes that the system has failed African Americans and wants to help fight discrimination, a former corrections officer who wants to see what it is like when the roles are reversed, a woman who met her husband while he was incarcerated and hopes to understand his institutionalized behavior, a Marine with law enforcement aspirations and others.

Chief Jailer Colonel Mark C. Adger runs the Fulton County Jail, and agreed to take part in “60 Days In” after seeing the results of the previous seasons in Clark County, Indiana. According to A&E, the challenges facing the Atlanta jail include “rival gangs, drugs, and corruption” (which, quite honestly, sounds like every jail).

This time, “male and female participants will be separated in two different facilities; men will be housed in the main campus where they share a cell with one other inmate, while females will be in cell-bunk form with seven other inmates. The participants are on lockdown with their cell mates for over 15 hours a day and face immense pressure to fit in or risk being the target of threats, violence or their having covers blown.”

Lucky 8 TV produces the show; executive producers include Gregory Henry, Kimberly Woodard, Jeff Grogan, Isaac Holub, Kelly McClurkin Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro, and Brad Holcman.

Here’s a first look at the new season of “60 Days In.”

Yes i have a complaint against one of your senior officers at the FULTON COUNTY JAIL a Seargent Moore he has ordered all water off in the 600 dorm for today i think this is inhumane for inmates to be locked in a cell without running water and or any drinking water..I received word that Sgt Moore ordered them to be locked in the rooms since 3 pm on Saturday March 11th until tonight it is now March 12th on Sunday at 8 pm..He also states he will not allow any of the inmates to order commissary for 30 days instead of punishing the individual that was disorderly i think these are the worst conditions a person could be under worst than the treatment of a animal..No one should have to be locked up for a 24 hour period and not at least allowed out to shower ,eat and or stretch themselves..This facility should be shut down it is ran by some of the most horrible individuals i have ever come into contact with..I think there needs to be an investigation into these deplurable conditions at the jail hell they are already locked up no need to treat them like animals..I think this senior officer should be stripped of his duties at the RICE ST FULTON COUNTY JAIL IMMEDIATELY PENDING AN INVESTIGATION ,AND GET SOMEONE IN THERE THAT WILL RESPECT THE INMATES HUMAN RIGHTS..No running water as a form of some kind of punishment is once again inhumane when you are locked in a room with feces floating around in a toilet..Will someone out here please look into this matter ASAP i will continue to reach out to the NEWS MEDIA,THE MAYORS OFFICE,INTERNAL AFFAIRS AS WELL UNTIL ACTION IS TAKEN..THANK YOU SIGNED A CONCERNED CITIZEN
