What We Know About Season 2 of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath
Leah Remini has given all of us an appetite for Scientology — at least for learning about it. Probably not for actually joining it because that shit is bananas.
Lucky for all of us, Remini's A&E show, Scientology and the Aftermath, just got renewed for a second season!
Season 2 will be comprised of 10 hourlong episodes telling the stories of former members of the church and how their lives have been affected by it.
"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," Remini said in a statement.
She continued, "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."
Scientology and the Aftermath has been both entertaining and informative, and you know it's probably accurate based solely on how hard the church has tried to discredit it, calling it a "scripted, rehearsed, acted and dramatized work of fiction."
Remini has been open about her attempts to annoy the church, and how she hopes they'll lead to a lawsuit since that would mean representatives of the church would be deposed under oath. So far, she's been threatened with legal action multiple times, but the church has never actually followed through.
