Leah Remini hit A&E show, “Scientology and the Aftermath,” has been renewed for a third season.

“I would say [the new season] is definitely to stay within Scientology, and I think that there is hope that there can be a bit more action can be taken, that it is a little more active. That’s probably all I should say that at this point,” Elaine Frontain Bryant, head of programming for A&E, told Deadline.

Remini the docu-series first broadcast in 2016, and received rave reviews for her stories with former Scientology members, such as Remini, who had been condemned by the church.

Season 2 of Remini, the show caused controversy with its focus on what the star called “the corrupt practices of Scientology.” The former Scientologist explained that they aim to make enough stir to warrant a federal investigation in the church and its practices.

“Scientology policy dictates that the children are grown men and women in small organizations. They believe that a 7-year-old girl should not shudder at being passionately kissed. That is in “Dianetics,” Remini told The Hollywood Reporter, referring to the church’s founder L. Ron Hubbard’s 1950 book. “If you become a member of the Sea Org [a clergy class with a nautical heritage] as a child, your parents give you over to Scientology. Children are treated as crew. They are assets. And if a child is abused, that child and/or parent can not go to the police, because it is against the policy. They process it in Scientology. They usually bring the offender in and give them the spiritual “auditing,” or counseling.”

In addition, the star opened up about her relationship with ex – “Mad men” stars, Elisabeth Moss, that other well-known Hollywood Scientologist.

“Elisabeth Moss is of the opinion that they do not talk to me,” Remini told THR. The star went on to explain the church’s concept of ‘acceptable truth’ in the sense that the members “only say what is acceptable to the public.”

“[Moss] is of the opinion that I am an anti-social personality, because I have spoken out against Scientology. So she is not allowed to talk to me. And I know that, I wouldn’t have her in the awkward position,” Remini said, adding that they have nothing against the actress. “I do not hold anything against Elisabeth Moss other than she is also the support of a group is that there is abuse and destroying families. … That is for her to learn — just what I needed to learn it.”

Remini was a member of the 30 years, and her co-host, Mike Rinder was a member of around 25 years and has served as director of the Office of Special Affairs before they both cut ties from the church.

The news of Remini, the show’s renewal comes just days after the Church of Scientology announced the launch of their new TV channel.
