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.
