The initial Surviving R. Kelly documentary kickstarted a chain of events which led to Kelly sitting behind bars, without bond, and awaiting trial - now Lifetime is reportedly working on Surviving R. Kelly: The Aftermath.

According to the Chicago Tribune, network representatives announced this week that Surviving R. Kelly: The Aftermath will include interviews with psychologists and more accusers. Some interviews took place in Chicago. 

Lifetime's six-part documentary Surviving R. Kelly aired back in January and has since been viewed by over 26.8 million people and has even received a 2019 Emmy nomination for best informational series or special.

The disgraced R&B singer has been indicted on 18 counts - 13 in Illinois and five in New York. His charges include sexual exploitation of a child and even racketeering charges. Two of his former staff members have also been arrested and charged.

R. Kelly continues to maintain his innocence and has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
