A&E Network has renewed the breakout limited docuseries Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath for an additional instalment.

The series 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. The new season will feature 10 hour-long episodes that will further explore accounts of former members whose lives have been significantly impacted by the Church’s practices.

“The critical and ratings success of this show speaks to television viewers’ increasing thirst for authentic and distinctive storytelling,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, EVP and head of programming at A&E Network, in a statement. “Through Leah’s passion and perseverance she has boldly empowered so many people to step forward and we’re eager to share more of those compelling stories with a new season.”

“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,” added Remini. “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. Executive producers for IPC are Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman. 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.
