Will season 2 come to Netflix?


60 Days In season 2 will be released to Netflix UK on Tuesday, September 15th.

Season 2 was released way back on August 18th, 2016 and so as Netflix already acquired the rights to season 1 it wasn’t surprising that they added season 2 to their catalogue.

If you can’t access 60 Days In season 2 on Netflix, you can find it on Amazon Prime. You will need a Crime+Investigation Play pass to be able to watch the other series of 60 Days In, which you can get for just £3.99 a month.

What to expect from season 2

Season 2 sees the return of Ashleigh Marie Baker from season 1. She is the only person who features in both series apart from the officers running the programme.

Ashleigh was the wife of ex-Marine Zachary Baker, who participated in the undercover experiment in the show’s first season. She had had her own struggles with addiction and alcoholism which resulted in serving some time behind bars.

Besides Ashleigh, there’s a whole new cast for season 2.

There are seven new cast members, ranging from a criminology student to an ex-Police Captain.
