A&E Renews ‘Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath’

Ten New Episodes Ordered

A&E Network has picked-up docuseries “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” for an additional installment. The new season will feature 10 new hour-long episodes that will further explore accounts of former members whose lives have been significantly impacted by the Church’s practices. “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” follows Leah Remini, along with high level former Scientology executives and Church members, as they delve deep into shocking stories of abuse, heartbreak and harassment experienced by those who have left the church and spoken publicly about their experiences.

“It became clear to us that although we were telling painful stories of former members of the Church of Scientology, this show was resonating strongly with people everywhere. The show is really about standing up for what is right and not letting bullies have their way. I feel it is important for people to know that you can take action to bring about change, both for yourself and for others,” said Leah Remini. “Our intention is to send a clear message to abusers that they will not go unchecked and will not be permitted to continue harming people without being questioned and challenged. We have been deluged with messages from those who have stories to tell who feel the show is a forum where their voices can be heard. We have been overwhelmed with support from well-wishers and fans of the show from around the world. But most importantly we felt compelled to proceed with another season to continue to reveal truths and seek justice for all victims.”

“Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” is produced for A&E Network by The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC). Executive producers for IPC are Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman. Leah Remini serves as executive producer for her No Seriously Productions. Executive producers for A&E Network are Devon Hammonds, Amy Savitsky and Elaine Frontain Bryant.
