Season 2 (2011)
A second season was hinted on February 1, 2009, when a bump right before the beginning of Superjail! featured a board poster's question as to the possibility of a second season, with Adult Swim's response that they are "working on it". In November 2009, another bump stated they were working on the scripts for season 2. At Comic-Con 2010, it was stated during Adult Swim's panel that the second season would begin in February or March 2011. Jackson Publick, creator of The Venture Bros., joined the writing/production staff as a story editor and consulting producer. The season eventually started on April 3, 2011,  and consists of 10 episodes.

Jailbot is consigned to a basement room where he meets up with previous versions of jailbots. Jailbot 2.0 makes Alice and Jared superfluous, and so efficiently manages Superjail that it becomes nonviolent, antiseptic, and hyper-efficient.

Meanwhile, the inmates hold their own movie night. Ash fears all movies in general, and is reluctant to go, but gay inmates Jean and Paul help him face his fears. The Warden, Jared, and the Doctor see some of the Warbuxx crystals on the floor, assume they are illegal drugs, and decide to get high to deter the inmates from using drugs. They begin to physically mutate (but believe this is just the effects of the drugs), run though Superjail, and scare the inmates. They send Ash into a flashback, and he burns the theater down. The three drugged individuals burst in on Alice and the Twins, who are in the Superjail refrigerator preparing for the budding of the Warbuxx. The Warbuxx (a human-like embryo) bursts out. The Twins reveal that the Warbuxx is a delicious delicacy, and eat it in front of a horrified Warden, Jared, and Doctor.
