Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath has been renewed for Season 3 on A&E, confirmed a rep for the network.
Series co-host and creator Remini celebrated the announcement on Twitter.
The Season 3 announcement comes mere days after Scientology revealed it was launching its own TV network.
Aftermath first aired in 2016, and since then it has garnered much critical acclaim, even landing Remini, her co-host Mike Rinder and the network a Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Informational Series.
On Aftermath, ex-Scientologists Remini, 47, and Rinder, 62, seek to tell the unheard stories of people who’ve managed to leave the religious organization. Along the way, the viewer gets some insight into Rinder’s and Remini’s expansive experiences as well.
Both of them are now classified by the church as “Suppressive Persons” (SPs) — people who seek to speak ill of Scientology — along with any journalist looking to tell a negative story about the religion. The treatment that befalls SPs is meant to be so unbearable, and in some cases so completely life-ruining, that they’ll cease their crusade to bring down Scientology.
The Church of Scientology vehemently denies all accusations and statements made by Remini, Rinder, the former Scientologists and Aftermath. The organization has a website dedicated to disproving all the claims of Aftermath and to discrediting Remini and Rinder.
Nothing seems to be stopping the two hosts from conveying their message to the public.
There’s no word yet on when Season 3 is expected to premiere, or what topics the duo will cover this time around.
