After three amazing seasons on the A&E network, Leah Remini's Emmy-winning series, Scientology and the Aftermath, will conclude with a hard-hitting 2-hour special on Monday night, August 26 at 9 pm.

Here's what the network sent us describing the program: "Filmed for the first time in front of a live studio audience, Remini and Mike Rinder explore stories of how Church of Scientology policies have hindered members from reporting instances of abuse and sexual assault to the authorities. They will speak to a number of ex-Scientologists who share their stories of abuse at the hands of other Scientologists, and describe how these policies are aimed at preventing the alleged crimes from becoming public. The episode will also feature a panel of legal, psychological and law-enforcement experts, who provide insight into the impact Scientology's practices have had on its former parishioners and advise how they can seek justice and effect change in the future."

[The Hollywood Reporter spilled the beans this morning that the episode will feature two of Danny Masterson's rape accusers, who had been filmed earlier for an episode that the LA District Attorney asked Leah Remini not to air. Yesterday's lawsuit filed by the accusers no doubt gives A&E some legal room to finally put their stories on the air.]
