The Leah Remini series will return for a second season.
March 15, 2017
A&E announced today that Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath will return for Season 2. The docuseries, which recounts experiences with the Church by the outspoken actress and other former members, premiered late last year with a nine-episode run that drew strong ratings for the cable network.
The series garnered much attention due not only to the public's curiosity about the controversial and mysterious religion, but also because of the church's high-profile feud with producers of the series in which they deny the accusations the show levies against them. All that attention helped the show become cable TV's top new unscripted series of the season in the 25-54 age demographic in Live+7 viewing.
Season 2, which is said to already be in production, will consist of 10 new hour-long episodes in which the series will continue to explore the accounts of former members whose lives have been impacted by the Church and its practices.

I really like this show. What could possibly be done for a season three? I loved the episode with the Scientology lawyer. She couldn't face the camera at all. She blinked so many times it was almost like she was having a seizure. It would be fun if the show could visit the homes of prominent Scientologists and try to get them on camera.

Maybe it's because I knew someone who got involved with this "church," but they didn't really tap on anything I didn't already know. At least most of it anyway. They are a crazy and dangerous bunch. I just found this series to not be as interesting as I expected. I'm not a Leah Remini fan admittedly so that could be a contributing factor to my lack of enthusiasm, but I do applaud her for doing the show.

I thought they were just repeating the same thing over and over last year. I watched it (one of them I see now) and thought I had seen everything. I got it. As a guy, I like science. Perhaps this is the girl's version of science.

This series grabbed my attention from the get-go. I'm outraged at the treatment of "the parishioners"....nothing like anything I ever heard of in ANY religion. I applaud Leah for the exposing of such horrific stories. I really do hope something comes of it! I would really be interested in more information on the likes of Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and the like. It amazes me that they could still be involved in this outrageous cult. Keep up the good work Leah!!!

Love, love, love this show. Leah pulls no punches. Hopefully, this will shine a light on how this cult is hurting so many people.

excellent show but how does this cult stuff go on without being shut down.

Excellent show in which she has much evidence against that cult! It is unbelievable what they do to people and how many lives have been wrecked because of it. Don't watch right before bed, though. Nightmares are sure to happen!

Highly addictive and quite interesting even if you knew nothing about topic before, I have since read her book Troublemaker in 2 days it was that good. I recommend both show and book
