Leah Remini Reunites With Kevin James On ‘Kevin Can Wait’ Set: ‘King Of Queens’ Doug And Carrie Back Together
Leah Remini is already feeling right at home on the set of Kevin Can Wait. Remini, who appeared as an undercover police detective on the two-episode season finale arc last season on the CBS comedy, has reunited with her longtime King of Queens husband Kevin James to shoot scenes for Kevin Can Wait’s revamped second season.
Earlier this summer, Kevin Can Wait fans were shocked to learn that Remini’s guest stint on the season finale two-parter, cleverly titled “The Sting of Queens,” would turn into a full-time role opposite Kevin James, and that his former female lead, Erinn Hayes, would be exiting the show. At CBS’ Television Critics Association summer press tour it was announced that Hayes’ character, Donna Gable, will be killed off of the show as part of a creative rest that will have the show moving forward in time by nine or ten months.
