Will ‘Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath’ Cover Allegations Against Danny Masterson Before It Ends?
Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath had Leah Remini and Mike Rinder interview former members of the Church of Scientology. There were many allegations covered throughout the show.
Now it is ending will it cover the allegations against Danny Masterson? Here is everything you need to know.
Scientology and the Aftermath will end with a 2-hour special
A&E has announced that the show will end on Aug. 26 with a two-hour finale. The special will be filmed in front of a live studio audience, according to Entertainment Weekly. Remini gave a statement about the decision.
Mike and I will always be grateful to A&E for giving us a platform to expose Scientology and give the victims a chance to be heard. Without the A&E team’s support The Aftermath wouldn’t be what we intended. We recognized it was time to move on to the next chapter and help people in new ways. We thank our viewers for caring in the way that you do. It means everything to us. There is not a day that goes by that we don’t have people stop us with a ‘thank you for doing what you guys are doing’ and it’s your support that gives us our strength to carry on. And carry on, we will.
Sources claim accusations against Danny Masterson will be mentioned
Four women came forward accusing Danny Masterson of sexually assaulting them in the early 2000’s. He denied the allegations but was later fired from the Netflix series, The Ranch.
Sources claim those accusations will be included in the special, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Remini was previously mentioned when the allegations came out because she was working with the alleged victims.
“I met with the LAPD,” she said according to The Underground Bunker. “I met with Detective Reyes, and I told her these victims deserve to be heard.”
She continued, “I pointed out to her that there was a framed picture of a Scientologist on their wall, actor Michael Peña. Do you know what that says to a young Scientologist who comes here to seek justice? My experience with the LAPD has not been good. I asked her to do the right thing by these girls, and I told her that the world is watching.”
At the time Masterson denied the allegations. His representative released the statement that ended with, “Based on reading the anti-Scientology blog that posted this story, these false allegations appear to be motivated to boost Leah Remini’s anti-Scientology television series since [the alleged victim] only came forward after connecting with Leah Remini.”
The alleged victims are suing Masterson and the Church of Scientology for stalking
The Blast reports that the four women are now suing Masterson and the Church of Scientology for stalking them in hopes to silence them.
“When those women came forward to report Masterson’s crimes the Defendants conspired to and systematically stalked, harassed, invaded their and their family’s privacy, and intentionally caused them emotional distress and silence and intimidate them,” they claim in the lawsuit.
It has yet to be confirmed whether the sources are correct about the allegations against Masterson being included in the finale. Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath will air its series finale on Monday, Aug. 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET on A&E.
