After three seasons at A&E, the show is coming to an end with a special reportedly touching on the allegations against Danny Masterson.
Leah Remini is going out with a bang when it comes to her A&E series, "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath."
Her cohost and fellow Scientology defector Mike Rinder first confirmed the news that the show would end after three seasons on Wednesday, thanking viewers for watching and promising that their "work is not done yet."
He went on to say that "sponsored television has limitations," claiming these restrictions have "limited us in many ways to tell the full story and in some cases, not permitted us to tell the story at all." He added that in the future, free from "the chains which have constrained us," they will "do what needs to be done and not have to wait for the wheels of bureaucracy to turn."
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, Remini echoed some of Rinder's words, saying it's time to "bring the fight to a different level."
"People kept telling us more stories, and we had to tell them, but there's only so much you can do in this forum and in this way," she told the publication, adding that she believes Scientology is definitely feeling the heat from their show. "Their time is up -- in terms of what they've gotten away with for decades."
Remini alluded to issues with advertisers, claiming Scientology has employees writing "444 letters by seven people" complaining about the show. "They don't want any of this bullshit nonsense," she added. "They don't want to be known as bigots. So their first instinct is to say, 'Look, we know this is a crazy organization, but we don't want any part of that.'"
The upcoming two-hour special will reportedly focus on accusations of sexual assault and abuse within the organization, touching on the allegations against Danny Masterson, who is being sued by four women who accused him of rape and using the church to help cover it up. Masterson's attorney called the lawsuit "ridiculous."
"We filmed with three [alleged] victims. The [alleged] victims were concerned and felt hurt and betrayed by [the delay in airing], and I understand that," Remini told THR. "They also feel hurt and betrayed by the [Los Angeles] District Attorney. I wanted to open up the whole thing. If it was any other organization but Scientology, the D.A. would at least be investigating. I've heard nothing."
The series picked up a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Informational Series or Special in 2017. The finale will air Monday, August 26 on A&E.
TooFab has reached out to the Church of Scientology for comment on the finale. In a previous statement about the Masterson lawsuit, they said, "From everything we have read in the press, this baseless lawsuit will go nowhere because the claims are ludicrous and a sham. It's a dishonest and hallucinatory publicity stunt. Leah Remini is taking advantage of these people as pawns in her moneymaking scam."
