It seems as if the success of "Jailbirds" blew up overnight. Fans of the show instantly became engulfed in the rich storylines involving love triangles, inmate quarrels and, of course, "toilet talking." Season one of the series left off on a cliff hanger, and fans are hopeful for a next season. According to Distracify, fans may get their wish:

While it's too early to tell for sure whether Jailbirds will be renewed for a second season, it sure seems promising for the cast of inmates at the Sacramento County Jail.
Considering the immediate success of the problematic but gripping docuseries that is Netflix's new Jailbirds, it's no surprise that fans are clamoring for more.
"Netflix really just ended Jailbirds first season like that....when is Season 2 before I get locked up and go see for myself?" wondered one fan on Twitter.

"First and Last" gives viewers an inside look of what those first hours after getting arrested are really like. The cameras follow these people as they are being placed into the jail's computer system, are strip-searched and eagerly trying to make bail. According to The Daily Dot, those first few hours are crucial because they determine where you will be resting your head for the evening:

It’s macabre to say, but the filmmakers struck gold with the first episode. An 18-year-old named Alex is arrested along with older men, Dontrell and Andre, after guns and drugs are found during a routine traffic stop. It’s clear that the guns and drugs didn’t belong to Alex, but he is expected to take the charges because Dontrell and Andre have already been in prison and have children and more adult responsibilities. You can also assume they are more senior gang members, but it is never explicitly stated: This fly-on-the-wall perspective is one of First and Last’s great strength.
