The two Kevin Can Wait characters are "literally Doug and Carrie as cops", she said, referring to their former iterations of Doug and Carrie Heffernan.

At TCA today, when Variety asked CBS president Kelly Kahl if Hayes had any say in the way her character would be written off the show, he replied, "No, I don't think so". At the 2017 Television Critics Association press tour, it was revealed how the show would handle the departure of actress Erinn Hayes and the entrance of Leah Remini.

It was the strangest twist of the TV season: In June, shortly after the first season finale of CBS' Kevin James sitcom "Kevin Can Wait", the show's creators made a decision to get rid of the character played by Erinn Hayes, who starred as James's wife.

With this in mind, the family has probably gone through some of the grieving process, leaving room to move forward.

Picking up a year after the Season 1 finale, Kevin Can Wait will now depict the Gable patriarch as a widower with kids.

Remini's appearances on the show were as a stunt, not a tryout, Kahl said.

CBS has promised that Donna Gable's death will be handled "tastefully" and that her demise will set up how the series will go forward. For those who don't know, James and Remini share a long history with each other, depicting a married couple on another CBS comedy, King of Queens. I think the show speaks for itself and stands for itself. It's likely CBS is hoping the chemistry between the two former co-stars will reinvigorate Kevin Can Wait, which has seen its audience decline steadily since its debut last September.

When the CBS sitcom Kevin Can Wait makes its Season 2 debut this fall, things are going to look a little different.

It may be a case of "It ain't broke don't fix it", but is morphing your failing comedy into King of Queens really the right way to go? "Thank you for all the support from our wonderful fans".

Last month, a source told TV Line that "Kevin Can Wait" Season 2 will head to a new creative direction.
