“60 Days In: Atlanta” wraps up season 3 Thursday night May 11 on A&E with a two-hour finale. The volunteers wrap up their time in Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail. Will all participants be released?
This season, innocent participants were plunged into the dangerous world of incarceration in Atlanta. With five times the number of inmates as previous seasons, rampant drug problems, a powerful gang population and the constant threat of violence, this season has pushed the volunteers to their limits.
In the season finale of “60 Days In: Atlanta” the participants endure their finals days, but one is forced to make that extremely difficult decision to stay for another 60 days. You get a week to let it all sink in until a season wrap-up show. In the sneak peek clip posted below, some of the participants describe one way to make it through the process. “To survive here, you have to fight”, says one.
The following Thursday, May 18 tune in to “The Aftermath” at 9 p.m. ET/PT. All eight participants are brought together with Colonel Mark Adger to talk about how they managed to embed themselves in the prison population and be accepted. Survival as an inmate will be discussed as the volunteers explain the truth of what it’s like to be an inmate in Fulton County Jail.
As the video clip demonstrates, you cannot be afraid of conflict and physical violence. It’s not for the weak of spirit, mind or body.
