When Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath premiered on A&E four years ago, it became an instant, unsettling hit for the cable network. The series was an exposé of the Church of Scientology’s most upsetting alleged sins, hosted and produced by one of their most famous former members: King of Queens star Leah Remini. While it was a smash success for three seasons on cable, some folks might have missed it. Now you can binge the whole series because Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath Seasons 1-3 are all streaming on Netflix.
Leah Remini has been a prominent and vocal member of the Church of Scientology since childhood. However that all changed when she broke with the church in 2013 over her distress over the long-time disappearance of member Shelly Miscavige. In 2015, Remini published her memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. The following year she hosted and produced an eight-part docuseries for A&E called Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. The series featured interviews with other survivors of the church who shared tales of abuse, harassment, and even sexual assault.
Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath became a smash hit for the network and went on to win two Emmys. It also courted a lot of controversy. However, the series is must-watch for anyone who wants to better understand the criticisms and scandals miring Scientology.
The good news? All three seasons of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath are now on Netflix.
