The Suffolk County Correctional Facility in Riverside is ready for another closeup.

More than a year after the Netflix drama “Orange is the New Black” and reality show “Long Island Medium” filmed episodes there, a documentary-reality series is spotlighting the lives of inmates and corrections officers at the jail.

“Lockup Extended Stay: Long Island” will feature six episodes about the Riverhead facility.

The first episode in the series is called “Sufferin’ County” and will premiere Saturday, May 30, at 10 p.m.

“A female inmate finds romance with an alleged gang leader and the jailhouse prepares for a wedding; a very powerful inmate must make a choice between his crime family and his real family,” reads a TV listing for the episode.
