Leah Remini’s A&E series about Scientology may take on Jehovah’s Witnesses in Season 3.
The first two seasons of “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” took on the Church of Scientology, but the host and executive producer says she’s open to expanding the scope of the series, should it return for another season.
“Yes, I’m open to doing a Season 3 in a different way. We’ve been getting an overwhelming amount of emails and people contacting us through [social media] about other cults that are similar [to Scientology], so I’m looking into that,” Remini said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
The show has not yet been renewed for a third season, but Remini said someone reached out to her, comparing the actions of Jehovah’s Witnesses to Scientology’s Sea Org. The individual warned Remini to be careful because “these f–ers are super powerful.”
“Are you ready for my response?” Remini said. “I don’t give a s— about powerful. The truth is what I care about.”
The A&E docuseries “Scientology and the Aftermath” debuted in 2016, inspired by Remini’s history as a follower and her contentious split from the church in 2013. The series was a ratings success for A&E and won an Emmy for Best Informational Series or Special earlier this month.
Remini currently also stars on CBS’s “Kevin Can Wait,” alongside her former “King of Queens” co-star Kevin James.
